Part Time Financial Controller

Part Time Financial Controller

Location Poole, Dorset
Salary £45000 to £55000 pro rata

This is the ideal role for a bright and experienced professional who is CIMA or ACCA qualified and looking for a flexible part time position within a growing international company. 

Over 30 years ago we had a vision, to build one of the biggest and best ATM parts and service businesses in the world. We are now looking for a talented Financial Controller to help us in our journey to achieving this goal.  

You will be based at our Upton Head Office, working 15 hours per week, possibly 22 hours a week at month end. The days and times can be tailored to suit your lifestyle. 

Is this a company you can advance your career with? 

You will be supported by our years of experience and will benefit from the knowledge that has been built up through our growth so far; thriving through two recessions and expanding into Europe and the USA. But, like many successful companies in the Finance Technology industry, we know that continued evolution and innovation are vital. You'll be joining a forward-thinking culture, a place where you can learn and progress, but also be supported in implementing your own ideas. 

What will your role be? 

You will be assisting and supporting our Financial Controller and managing the Finance Department in their absence.  Together you’ll be responsible for the production of a variety of routine and ad-hoc financial MI reporting, annual budgets and 3-5 year forecasts as well as month end, mid-year and year end activities.

You’ll support the wider finance team to develop robust and consistent management accounting, forecasting and budgeting systems and ensure effective financial controls and procedures are in place designed to protect the company’s profitability, cashflow and balance sheet.

You will also be involved in our Business Continuity planning, reviewing NDA’s and other contractual documentation and managing insurance renewals, queries and claims.

Is this role right for you? 

To succeed in this role, you’ll need to be a qualified accountant, with in-house experience and good all-rounder knowledge.  You are just as comfortable preparing statutory accounts, as you are presenting MI to a Senior Management Team or lending a hand to the Accounts Team by processing some invoices. 

You’ll need to be credible and diplomatic, with the ability to tailor your communication style when working with people at all levels both internal and external to the organisation. As well as being resourceful and self-motivated you’ll need to be used to working in a fast-paced environment with short deadlines.

This is a varied role with a wide remit and would suit you if you have a strategic approach and want to grow your career along with our growing company. 

As we have a global customer and supplier base experience of foreign exchange would be ideal. If it was gained within a business with continuously moving inventory, even better. If you have already performed a Financial Controller position within a similar business, perfect! But if you don't, let's arrange a chat and we can discuss how your skills and experience could help TestLink grow. 

The package…

As well as success, job satisfaction, opportunities for training and self-development, you'll also get; 

  • Salary pro rata of £45,000 - £55,000 depending on experience
  • Competitive pension, life assurance and other company benefits 
  • Flexi-time, employee recognition awards, long service bonuses, rising holiday allowance and company and team events
