Non-Executive Finance Director - International Automotive Sector
Bristol / High Daily Rate
My client is a large and very successful international business with an interesting, profitable and current niche in the automotive sector. It has a long track record and a recognised and well-regarded brand.
You will join the Group Board as a Non-executive Finance Director to provide support on policy and governance, strategy and commercial decision-making for the executive finance director and the Board. You will assist the Board (including the non-executive Chairman) to ensure the governance function of the company is to the standard required of an international Group.
You will also attend several Board meetings each year (five or six) for the Group Board and the head office Board. The concentration of your efforts will be around these regular Board meetings, although your input as required will not be limited only to these.
You will be a mature qualified accountant with knowledge gained – either through client relationships or through direct experience - of manufacturing, in an environment similar to the one within which this company operates. You will possess strong knowledge of UK Company law obligations and UK GAAP and you will be experienced at and comfortable within a Board-level environment. You will be strategic in outlook and a commercial thinker, always alert to opportunity, with a broad knowledge of commerce and industry; ideally both in the UK and abroad.
You will bring a unique blend of knowledge and experience gained that will enhance this company’s journey.
It is important that you are an independent thinker; happy to challenge decisions and yet a team-player who can also create a status quo. It is also important that you are agile within a change environment and a well-organised, systems-focused, practical problem-solver. Finally, your attention to detail, professional integrity, confidentiality and discretion will be paramount.
