- Our client is a growing, successful and substantial group in a rapidly developing, consumer-facing sector. Continued growth plans for the businesses, combined with the need to upgrade aspects of the group’s treasury functionality, have resulted in the need for a high calibre executive to join the senior group financial management team in the newly-created position of Treasury Controller.
- Reporting to the Director of Treasury, the incumbent’s primary duties will involve driving the development and presentation of the group’s complex treasury reporting to external stakeholders, including lending institutions and equity investors. He/she will manage information flows from a number of different sources from operating companies to the group treasury itself, creating the necessary processes and relationships in order to achieve accurate and robust results.
- Candidates for this role are likely to hold a professional accountancy qualification with a further treasury qualification being ideal. They will have gained a number of years of financial reporting and analysis experience at management level. Exposure to treasury affairs is a prerequisite, and knowledge of corporate funding routes, and the associated cash flows, covenant requirements, hedging instruments and so forth, would be a distinct advantage. The role could suit a treasury accountant in a corporation or financial institution, or possibly an accountancy firm executive with treasury exposure and keen to develop his or her career in the corporate arena. Whatever the executive’s background, he/she will need to demonstrate advanced analytical and project management skills, combined with credibility and the ability to build and maintain relationships at senior management level.
- This is regarded as a pivotal group financial role at a time of significant transformation of this fast-moving group. Ambitious executives with the ability to assume other treasury and/or general financial responsibilities in time will be given preference in the recruitment process.
