•Lead on driving forward these initiatives with the team of 8 that you’ll be leading, providing further opportunity for you to develop your coaching and broader leadership skills.

Our ideal candidate:

We’re looking for someone who not only has a finance or operational controls background but someone who will thrive at the opportunity to work alongside our finance transformation team to drive forward improvements to our processes, controls and reporting and preferably with leadership experience.
