Just 15 months after its creation, The Beaufort Group is seeking a finance director to help lead the group's next phase of growth.
The successful candidate will have a place on the board, report to the chief executive, and be expected to make a "major contribution to the management and growth of the business," according to the job advertisement.
They will join the other members of the Beaufort Group board: group chief executive, Alan Easter, executive chairman Simon Goldthorpe and non-executive directors Peter Williams and David Ingram.
The finance director will assume ownership for financial strategy and control; monitoring business performance; contributing to the evaluation, development and enhancement of the finance function; ensuring the group meets the highest standards of regulatory requirements; and preparing all management, statutory and regulatory reporting.
They will be a qualified accountant, and although financial services experience would be good, it's not a prerequisite. In addition, they will be able to demonstrate a strong and enthusiastic leadership style.
The package will be built to suit the right person, according to the advert.
