Rutherford Cross retained by Arnold Clark to appoint an FP&A Accountant

Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd is one of the largest car dealer groups in Europe. But it all started with just one showroom in Glasgow, Scotland, back in 1954.

Since its launch in 1954, Arnold Clark Automobiles has grown to become Europe’s largest privately owned car retailer, selling in excess of 280,000 vehicles per year and generating an annual turnover of over £3 billion.

Arnold Clark’s employees play a valuable role in the company’s continued success, as it puts customer experience at the heart of everything it does. In addition to selling cars, Arnold Clark provides rental vehicles, business fleet services, and high-quality training in a host of areas, as well as servicing, MOT tests and accident repairs. The business also supports local initiatives, to help the communities it works in.  As part of the Arnold Clark Group there are four smaller companies within the Group, in addition to the main business. Arnold Clark is an all-inclusive company with great opportunities for progression.

The Arnold Clark Group has grown significantly over the last 10 years adding various departments to its Head Office function. As Arnold Clark prepares for further growth, a requirement has been identified to create a new position, FP&A Accountant. The role will be part of a new FP&A Department and the post-holder will be responsible for partnering with operational and financial stakeholders across the business to develop more in-depth financial performance analysis across all geographical areas and franchises. The post-holder will play a central role in shaping the way Arnold Clark reviews its financial performance through the implementation of new KPIs. This position will sit within the Group Finance Department but will work closely with operational colleagues based across the franchise network. The individual will need advanced Excel skills and a willingness to develop the business’ use of Power BI. The FP&A Accountant will have one direct report, a graduate, providing exposure to people management.
