Our client is a consumables company that has just set up a new trading arm and we are now looking for a Head of Finance to join them to build up the team.
About the job
Reporting to the CEO and as the first hire in finance you will be responsible for the full spectrum of accounting and finance activities. You will also be both an advisor and trusted business partner to the leadership team by providing insights and building up business cases to push for certain decisions that would promote business growth and profitability. There are currently no processes and systems in place and this person would be building things up from ground zero thus the ideal candidate is someone who is driven, resilient and has strong leadership and stakeholder management skills.
Skills and experience required
A recognised degree in accounting or ACCA or relevant with at least 10 years of relevant experience. What we’re looking for is someone with strong trade finance experience preferably from companies that do trading/supply chain to easily understand the business (import/export trade) as well as the ability to communicate in mandarin with chinese stakeholders given we will be looking to expand the business into Greater China.
Why is this a good role?
For the right candidate this would be an amazing opportunity to be part of the management team as a pioneer and be able to build/set up the finance structure within the organisation. Given that the company is also backed up by the parent group there is good stability if one were to take up the role.
