Our client is a well-known, highly successful large international group with multiple trading divisions. We have been retained to find a Finance Director for the UK Auto Division, which has a turnover of around £500m and specialises in retailing luxury cars in the UK through an expanding dealership network. As a member of the board you will be expected to play a key role in the future growth and development of the business. The role will involve reporting directly into and working closely with the UK CEO, with full responsibility for the finance and IT teams. You will also have a reporting line into an overseas Group Financial Controller.
The successful candidate will have extensive post qualification experience and ideally have gained some exposure to accounting for dealerships either in the profession or in industry. More importantly you will have the interpersonal and communication skills to become an effective and influential board member.
