Finance Director

About the role

Peak Scientific has been developing award-winning gas generation products since 1997. Its headquarters, including a high tech manufacturing and R&D facilities, are based at Inchinnan near Renfrew.

It now employs 350 people globally in 15 international offices, with a turnover of £40M. Over the last 5 years the company has enjoyed impressive annual growth between 25 and 30%, selling 90% of our gas generator products overseas to over 120 countries, including the United States, China, Japan, Brazil, India and South Africa.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly successful, rapidly growing international business – individuals who fit their culture and values will have a high degree of professionalism but appreciate the non-corporate feel in a fun atmosphere.

As Finance Director, you will be responsible for leading and managing the finance team and supporting the Managing Director (who is also the founder) on a daily basis as well as on ad hoc projects.  You will have responsibility for financial control and reporting to the board and external parties, risk management, financial governance including of overseas subsidiaries and for all group transfer pricing and tax compliance.  The expectation is that the Finance Director will also play a full part in the wider commercial and performance management of the business and will work with the board and business heads in this respect.

Candidates will be suitably experienced and qualified accountants who are able to demonstrate a proactive, effective and influential personal style and a track record of consistently delivered results.

Candidates will be able to demonstrate a track record of building high performance teams and coaching team members to operate to their maximum potential. We are looking for someone who can make an immediate positive contribution while also looking for a role which offers scope for personal development.
