Deputy Finance Manager (Part-time - 24 hours a week)

Royal Leamington Spa - £28,000 - £34,000 pro-rata (*This is the Full-time Equivalent)

Bespoke Recruitment is delighted to be actively partnering a long-established and successful Warwickshire client in their quest to recruit a part-time Deputy Finance Manager to their UK HQ. Boasting 75 years of local experience, they have come through the initial lockdown period in a robust financial position and are now in a strong position to actively go ahead and recruit a replacement for a retiring employee. Our client has an impressive record of staff retention with the majority of their employee's only ever opting to leave due to reaching their retirement age.

Working in a small team of 4, this is a great opportunity for someone to support the Finance Manager and engage a hands-on involvement in the typical day to day and month to month activities of a busy finance function. They are looking for someone to join the team based on a 24-hour working week with their ideal work pattern being 4 x 6 hour days.

As the Deputy Finance Manager, your responsibilities will include:

  • Preparing financial reports (Journals, prepayments, P & L, Balance Sheet, Analysis & Reconciliation of control accounts)
  • Preparation of accounts up to TB level
  • Processing sub-contractor invoices and CIS administration
  • Support the budgeting/forecasting process
  • Bank payments and reconciliation of cash books
  • VAT and PAYE returns
  • Ad hoc support to the finance manager
  • Provide detailed performance reports to the team

  • AAT or similar preferred, Qualified by experienced candidates with in-depth demonstrable experience will be given consideration

  • Good VAT knowledge
  • Ideally some payroll knowledge, payroll is outsourced but knowledge would be useful
  • Great attention to detail and strong Excel skills
  • Previous CIS experience would be a distinct advantage
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills and a willingness to be flexible on working patterns

Located in lovely modern premises, our client has a great reputation for employee engagement. Their impressive staff retention figures are no doubt a reflection on their strong "employee-centric" culture. Respectfully, this role would suit someone happy to continue to operate at this level for many years to come. Being honest, they don't boast a large finance function which will present opportunities for career progression but will look after those who demonstrate a commitment and dedication to deliver.

In return, as Deputy Finance Manager you will receive a salary of £28,000 - £34,000 (This would be the full-time equivalent if you worked 40 hours) per annum + Pension, Bupa and 25 days holiday (+ Bank holiday)
