INTERIM FC & SYSTEMS IMPLEMENTATION - PE / RETAIL START UP - 6 MONTHS - LEICESTER (ON SITE) - OUT OF SCOPE


I have the pleasure of presenting a unique opportunity to work with a private equity backed retail start-up during a very exciting period of transition. The group strategy is to buy-and-build independent businesses across various regions in the UK, with the purchased business in Leicestershire being the platform for these acquisitions. The first 2 acquisitions have already been identified.

Longer term as part of this transition a new finance team will be required, however there is an immediate need for a FC-level individual to assist with the process of setting up the new function from scratch. This will involve setting up and managing new financial policies, procedures and controls (PP&C) in a dynamic business, including the implementation of a new accounting system (which over time will be integrated with other applications such as EPOS, procurement, payroll and CRM). Working with the management team, responsibilities will build to developing a multi-level reporting pack.

The successful candidate will need to have the the following skills, experience and characteristics:

  • A self-starter who can take projects on and run with them.
  • Experience of setting up new PP&Cs.
  • Someone who can bring on an AAT trainee (who is probably coming over from the old business) and mentor them.
  • ERP implementation experience (they have a shortlist), someone who can think creatively about how these can be implemented and used, particularly in saving labour
  • Personable character
  • Delivery and output focused

The role is FT (may consider 4 days) based in Leicestershire and you will required on site at least 4 days per week. The role has been deemed OUT OF SCOPE FOR IR35 and the daily rate will be £350-400+ per day for at least a 6 month period. For those interested in longer term opportunities with the business there will likely be permanent opportunities.

Full details and a JD are available upon request.
