This Financial Controller role will work alongside an impressive Finance Director and will take ownership of the day to day accounting function for the group of companies and family trusts. Previous experience of Sage, MS Office, Management Accounts and VAT returns is essential. The role will be extremely varied, a new challenge every day, and will include preparation of management accounts for all entities, preparation of VAT returns, managing the part time bookkeeper and administrators, involvement in investment reports and analysis and ad hoc work related to property, farming and leisure activities on the family estate.
