Rutherford Cross is delighted to be working in partnership with a highly successful Scottish family-owned business to appoint a Finance Manager to help deliver business growth and drive forward the finance function. The newly created role will be integral to the team and will report directly to the Financial Controller. The intention is for the Financial Controller to gradually hand over much of their day-to-day tasks to the Finance Manager, to allow them to take ownership of specific upcoming project work (such as ERP / accounting system review etc.). This will also allow the business to maximise the use of automation and technology. Therefore, there is a clear degree of succession planning for the new role of Finance Manager.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Support the Financial Controller with the preparation and circulation of regular performance and management information to the board and departmental managers. This will enable informed decision-making and budget control
  • Assist with the preparation of VAT returns and reporting
  • Assist with the preparation of regular payroll cycles
  • Assist with the processing and payment of purchase invoices
  • Assist with the preparation of forecasts and budgets
  • Prepare year-end reporting information for incorporation into statutory accounts
  • Interact with external organisations, such as the auditors and HMRC, to ensure ongoing compliance with all necessary regulations
  • Monthly balance sheet reconciliations and accounting
  • Support the delivery of a robust reporting analysis structure and appropriate software tools to deliver accurate and timely commercial MI to the business leadership team and core functions, using automation where possible
  • Provide analysis and insight on ad hoc financial planning projects and commercial decision-making, including the financial implications of complex projects and trading arrangements
  • Complete various compulsory ONS surveys

The Individual :

This role would suit a newly or recently qualified accountant with relevant industry experience, who is now looking to further develop their career within a highly successful Scottish business.

  • Fully qualified accountant with a relevant professional qualification (CA / ACCA / CIMA etc.)
  • Demonstrated industry experience working in a similar finance environment
  • Strong Excel and IT skills
  • Experience of VAT return preparation
  • An analytical, proactive and problem-solving mindset
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Driven to succeed and continually develop
  • Experience working with Power BI reporting tools would be advantageous, although not required
  • Experience in payroll preparation would be advantageous, although not required

On Offer:

  • Competitive Salary
  •  Annual bonus of up to 10%
  • 28 days annual leave
  • Employer pension contribution of up to 5%
  • Hybrid / Flexible working model
  • Excellent progression and development opportunities
  • Various health and wellness initiatives for employees
