Rutherford Cross retained to appoint Financial Reporting Manager by Caledonian Sleeper

Caledonian Sleeper is the collective name for overnight sleeper train services between London and Scotland. A sleeper service has been in operation since 1873. There have been many changes over the years with different organisations running the service.

In June 2023, the service was taken into public ownership and is now being run by Caledonian Sleeper Limited a subsidiary of Scottish Rail Holdings, an arm’s length company owned and controlled by the Scottish Government.  This new arrangement replaces the previous Caledonian Sleeper franchise, operated by Serco Caledonian Sleepers Limited.

The newly created role of Financial Reporting Manager provides an exciting opportunity for a talented finance professional with the desire to join an iconic and unique organisation embarking on the next chapter in its journey. The successful candidate will support the Head of Finance and will work closely with the wider business and the existing offshore team to establish all the required financial procedures. It is crucial that the appointed candidate is a driven, qualified accountant with a proactive approach to improving financial processes in an organisation going through significant period of change.

The role holder must be eager to develop a strong understanding of the operations beyond finance. The Financial Reporting Manager will possess excellent communication skills, both verbal and written. The individual must be comfortable working in an environment where processes and controls are yet to be established and take ownership of putting these in place.  They must also be driven to learn how the organisation operates beyond finance.
