£80-100k plus significant package and amazing prospects for the right individual
Amazing opportunity to join one of the UK’s most respected retailers, a chance for a retail finance professional to take the career to the ‘major leagues’.
Reporting to the Group CEO, this is an exciting opportunity for a highly ambitious retail background professional to take on a critical role within this ground-breaking business. The appointee will assume full P&L responsibility for all distribution channels of including ‘Bricks and Mortar’ Retail, E-commerce and emerging international markets, leading a team of 28.
The business is known across the sector, not only for its market dominating position but also for its innovative strategy of space optimisation and customer experience.
Whilst known primarily as a ‘Bricks & Mortar’, high-street brand, the business has, and is still developing, a very strong E-commerce offering. Their plans for continued growth centre on both UK and international expansion, including the US, and the eCommerce business.
The successful applicant will have the primary responsibility for finance and commercial relationships with the rest of the business, and in particular, the CEO. The gravitas given the role will also see frequent contact with the Chief Executive and Chairman. This is a kingpin role for the right person.
The appointee will already have a very strong retail or B2C background. They will have experienced growth and success and have blossomed within a high-change environment. eCommerce will have featured strongly in their recent career, but they will have a traditional retail background.
It will be immediately obvious why the appointment has been made, the appointee will possess gravitas and have an immediate (positive!) impact on everyone they meet. They will be a qualified accountant with at least 5, more probably closer to 10 years post-qualification exposure.
This will almost certainly be the successful candidate’s first Finance Director appointment, but they will be ready for such a significant move, possessing at least 5 years of Retail or B2C exposure, within industry and/or practice, where they will have seen their career flourish and the skill-set exponentially grow.
This is a truly career defining role.
