The Devil is in the detail!!!
Ever find it infuriating how people around you can't see how poor the processes are? You know there is a million better ways to complete the task but "We've always done it this way!" or "If it isn't broke why fix it!" excuses come out.
Ever get into heated debates with other departments about Finance being the "sales prevention team" or "operational obstruction team", just because your trying to stop the business haemorrhaging money, or minimise risk?
You're passionate about the integrity of finance. After you qualified, you took an oath to uphold the industry standards and have strived to hold yourself to those same high standards everyday. Your colleagues around you see you as the "go to" guy when it comes to Sox compliance, rightly so you've worked hard to be the fountain of knowledge with Sox. You've got all the experiences around IFRS and you have the utmost faith in your technical accounting skills.
Fine, you've intrigued me...What is the actual job?!
You're responsibility will include managing and developing a team that will lead the business in financial control & implementing robust framework. You'll also be charged with providing best practices within the controls and compliance framework. Ideally with strong working knowledge in Sarbanes-Oxley.
Reporting directly to the FD, you'll have the confidence and the ability to articulate operational effectiveness of new controls, with detailed insight into the effective testing before roll out. There's a lot of stakeholder management, as you'll be dealing with the various finance departments as well as operational departments. The emphasis really being around your ability to understand what those departments need to do, and processes being implemented causing minimal operational impact.
Couple of things the client would like from the right candidate...
