Rutherford Cross is delighted to be retained by our key client SMS plc in the city centre of Glasgow to recruit a newly created Group Financial Reporting Manager due to continued growth.
Established in 1995, SMS Plc is a leading independent provider of multi-utility infrastructure connections and meter asset management solutions. Their professional services are delivered to UK gas and electricity suppliers and directly to end customers in both the industrial and commercial (I&C) and domestic markets.
In July 2011, SMS began a new chapter as a public company when it listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM market. The purchase of Utility Partnership Ltd (UPL) in 2014 marked SMS’s first ever acquisition and in 2016 the company went on to make three further acquisitions. With the headquarters in Glasgow, the business now operates across 7 subsidiaries and from locations including Glasgow, Cardiff, Doncaster and Cambridge.
It’s an exciting time to be part of SMS Plc. The business has grown rapidly in recent years, both organically and via acquisition, and has an ambitious strategy which will continue to build market share. Financial performance has been excellent; for the year to 31st December 2017 revenues increased 18% to £79.6m and EBITDA increased 19% to £38.8m.
The Group Financial Reporting Manager is an integral part of SMS plc team in Glasgow and will report directly into the Group Financial Controller. The Group Financial Reporting Manager role sits within the head office in Glasgow.
