Job Overview:

A start-up that is emerging into an SME on the back of continual growth, and 100% revenue growth predicted for the next financial year, is seeking a Management Accountant to report directly to the CFO as they continue this exceptional journey.

As the business continues to mature, the CFO is looking for an experienced Management Accountant looking for a highly progressive role that will encompass all areas of a typical finance function, as well gain exposure to the CFO and strategic work.
