The Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of some of the finest and rarest Scotch Whiskies in the world. Its heritage is amongst the oldest in the industry. The Group has gone through a significant period of growth since 2014 and following the recent acquisition by Hillhouse Capital Management, a global investment firm with a focus on innovative businesses in growth industries, the business has ambitious plans.

The company has invested significantly in growing its portfolio of brands, distillery and bottling infrastructure, global distribution platform, and management team. The business now generates about 70% of its revenue from more than 100 international markets, versus less than 10% in 2014.

The Financial Accountant position has been created to strengthen the company’s financial processes and controls as the business continues to grow. The post-holder will work as part of a Financial Accounting team, reporting to the Finance Manager and working closely with 2 Financial Analysts. This position will require an individual who is hungry to learn and take on additional responsibility.

The organisation represents an excellent opportunity for a motivated accountant who wants to work in a high growth, drinks business. In addition, the business will provide a firm career platform with good opportunity for personal and professional development as well as the mandate to shape and define how the role evolves. The company is agile in its approach and is very receptive to recommendations, resulting in great autonomy for the post-holder.
