It will also manage the reporting of operational performance, opex and capex management and cash forecasting, as well as manage bank accounts/payment authorisation. Additionally, the continued business growth is driving a need to enhance the control environment across the finance function and the MD will also require support deputise in their absence.
The ideal candidate will be a highly ambitious ACA/CIMA/ACCA qualified accountant with a strong academic background. Experience of working in the Utilities, Asset Management or Energy Sectors would be advantageous.
