Job description

Finance Manager | Long Term Succession Planning to FD | £60,000 - £70,000 | Preston | Private Equity Backed Business


Axon Moore has partnered with a strong PE backed SME in Preston whose Finance Director is looking to appoint a Finance Manager.


This role will be the right hand person to the FD, working in close proximity day-to-day with them, receiving intentional support and development with the view of the candidate succeeding them in the future.


This will be a hands on role, managing a team, assisting the FD on value creation projects and driving value creation around the business. The investors have ambitious plans and they want to hire a leader that can be present day-to-day in the office.


Candidate Profile:

  • Open to all qualification backgrounds – ACA / CIMA / ACCA
  • M&A experience and/or experience within private equity would be advantageous, but if not, then a demonstrable background in tackling projects that have contributed quantifiable value to a business
