Commercial Finance Manager
Location : Auckland City
Post Date : 06 June 2017
Employment Type : Permanent
Job Reference : 9299998MA
Job Classification : Finance & Accounting
My client is a NZ innovation story. Although the business is only a few years old, the brand is already a household name and is going from strength to strength. The business offers a premium product offering and has not only taken NZ by storm but is now already penetrating global markets. The people in this organization are immensely passionate, work extremely hard and share a common goal with true ambition at the forefront. This role is newly created and will report directly to a part time CFO who is entrepreneurial, proven in growth businesses and truly inspirational.
The role of Finance Manager is very much a commercial role with the core Financial Accounting outsourced to third parties. Therefore the focus on this role is the value add, management accounting type focus. The business is looking for a partner in the finance function who can analyse trends, market opportunities, channels, and product profitability. You will also be tasked with modelling scenarios for NPD and future opportunities. Budgeting and forecasting, cashflow management, and a sales and margin focus are key requirements of this role.
As the business is currently small in terms of permanent headcount there is no place to hide in this organization. Your ability to add value quickly and partner the MD/owner who has entrepreneurial spirit running through his veins is key. You will partner with the third party Accounting team who provide the day to day financial support and it is critical you are able to build a strong working relationship with this trusted advisor.
Your commercial acumen has to be a given.
This is not your ordinary role. You need to be commercial, dynamic and a driver of value add who can anticipate the needs of the business and want to be immersed in what is effectively a culture of start up mentality. You definitely need to roll up the sleeves and get involved. You will need to have a thick skin and be responsive to a direct management style that is all about execution. This is definitely not a 9-5 role. You will be someone who is energetic, passionate and driven. Your base skill sets will be there and this truly is an exceptional opportunity to be mentored by a CFO and an owner that are proven at building businesses. You will be someone on the upward trajectory of your career who is keen to grow and learn from some serious business leaders but you must be CA qualified to be considered.
