Reed Finance have been retained to recruit a Managing Director to spearhead the UK operations of a global FMCG business, from their new headquarters in Peterborough.
The group, originally founded in 2007, has enjoyed $350m in revenues and have invested £40m of their own profits into the development of the new production plant, due to commence manufacturing their products in June/July.
We are working with the Board to appoint a Managing Director to oversee the finance and operations, and drive the business forward to repeat the success of their international companies.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a flourishing organisation and play a central part in their expansion.
With complete autonomy and reporting to the Board, you will be responsible for creating and applying a forward finance plan, implementing sales and marketing strategy and targets, oversee the operations, distribution and finance to achieve the company’s objectives.
Having worked in a manufacturing/ FMCG or similar environment you will understand and manage the process to achieve maximum yields, cost management such as pricing of raw materials and the effect of production and distribution expenditures to the bottom line.
Despite being a global entity, the UK function is in its infancy therefore would suit an existing MD or Finance Director (or equivalent) from a small to medium size business seeking a new challenge.
You will be ACA or ACCA qualified, preferably having trained in a reputable accountancy practice although we will consider those who have developed their career straight into industry who possess the desired kills and attributes.
Experience in manufacturing/FMCG or comparable sector is essential, with involvement in all areas of the business.
You will be flexible in your approach, have an appetite for growth with an entrepreneurial mindset and be excited by the idea of joining a business at a pivotal point that has a proven format for success.
An attractive package with the potential for profit share is available.
