A demanding opportunity has arisen at a challenged PE-backed retailer who are currently seeking a CFO. The business requires hands-on, decisive leadership as it undergoes a fundamental transformation. The brand is well known and has real potential for the future. Your role will cover finance but extend futher throught the business, with many operational and commercial aspects.

Key responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

  • Initially responsible for re-positioning the finance function as a central business function
  • Working closely with the board to guide turnaround strategy
  • Identify performance gaps and potential improvement opportunities
  • Coordinating stakeholder management with the PE-firm
  • Dealing with bank negotiations
  • Heading up debt reconstruction strategies
  • Managing the full finance teams through a period of change and development
  • Targeted buying and merchandising
  • Monitoring and improving store performance
  • CAPEX spending

The ideal candidate must have a proven track record in PE backed turnaround environments and strong experience leading mid to small size business restructuring. A consumer or goods-related background is preferable, as is experience in managing funds at a time of financial difficulty.

Applicants should be qualified accountants, preferably chartered (ACA/ACCA/ACMA). Please understand that due to the expected high number of applications, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted directly.
