James Jones & Sons Ltd was established over 170 years ago and has developed into one of the largest timber processing groups in the UK. The Group comprises 3 trading arms; Sawmilling, Engineered Timber Products and Pallets. With a turnover of over £150m the business has grown both organically and through acquisition. The Group also has an investment in Stella Jones Inc, North America’s leading producer of pressure treated wood products through its joint venture with Stella SpA, an Italian company.

As a result of an upcoming maternity cover for the Management Accountant and the planned retiral of the Group Financial Controller in the next two years, a new permanent vacancy has been created. This is a rare, fast-tracked opportunity for a recently qualified accountant to progress from the role of Group Management Accountant to Group Financial Controller in a diverse, dynamic and market leading business.

The Group Management Accountant vacancy is a fantastic opportunity to build a career with one of Scotland’s most successful businesses. The position has been created with succession planning in mind for the medium to long-term, whilst addressing the requirement to cover core management accounting duties in the short-term. The long-standing Group Financial Controller will be retiring in the next 2 years and as such the business is keen to appoint an individual who has the attributes and ambition to progress to a more senior financial and commercial role.

The successful candidate will spend their first year with the company covering the Management Accountant’s role, learning the intricacies of the business. This is a great opportunity for an aspirant Group Financial Controller to gain a thorough understanding of the business of James Jones & Sons Ltd, its finance function, systems and processes at a detailed level. This will equip the right candidate with the knowledge to deliver as they step up to the role of Group Financial Controller.
