Rutherford Cross retained to appoint 2 key roles with STV’s finance team

STV is Scotland’s home of news and entertainment, serving audiences with quality content on air, online and on demand.  STV’s broadcast channel, accessible free-to-air on all the main TV platforms in Scotland, reaches over 3 million viewers each month and is home to some of the biggest and most popular shows on television.

The channel’s first-class content includes soaps Emmerdale and Coronation Street, big drama productions, entertainment hits Britain’s Got Talent and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, strong home-grown productions, and Scotland’s best, most comprehensive and most trusted news service. Flagship news programme STV News at Six, continues to grow its audience share and is Scotland’s most watched news service.

The STV Player is Scotland’s leading commercial video on demand service and one of the fastest growing in the UK. Viewers in STV’s broadcast licence areas can enjoy their favourite STV shows live or on demand. Additionally, there is an increasing library of Player-exclusive content – acquired through third party deals and consisting of shows not available through Channel 3 – which is available to viewers for free across the whole of the UK. There is also an ad-free subscription version, STV Player+, which offers an opportunity to watch STV programming without the adverts.

As a result of internal changes and growth we are partnering with STV to appoint a Group Statutory & Controls Accountant and a Group Management Accountant.

STV Group plc represents an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic business at a relatively early stage of its growth; having displayed strong revenue and profit progression in recent years, with record results in 2021, and demonstrating resilience against the current uncertain economic backdrop. As one of Scotland’s few listed companies, these are rare opportunities for the successful individuals to operate in the unique and changing environment of a plc business.
