Is the Finance Manager role in Coventry right for me?

This opportunity could be ideal for a hands on Accountant who is either making a first move from practice or trained in Industry with a varied skill-set ranging from transactional finance (credit control, AP & AR) to preparing management accounts and is at the final stages or Qualified ACA or ACCA.

Hunger and ambition are a must as the Finance Director is looking for somebody that can eventually replace him. To ensure that happens, you will work closely together and support will be offered for more difficult tasks with an aim that you can eventually take full ownership which will include challenging Operational Directors and how they can reduce spend across the business.

If you enjoy a varied workload, looking for an opportunity to develop real relationships with non-finance individuals and keen to work with a supportive line manager who wants to provide you with the skill-set needed to move into a Financial Controller role in the future, this could be a very exciting option.
