This opportunity has now been filled

Finance Director

About the role

Scott & Fyfe have been designing and producing a vast range of technical textiles for numerous market areas worldwide for almost 150 years including automotive, renewable, agricultural and industrial applications.

The business has a global reputation for quality and service and for designing and manufacturing products for both current and future market needs.

Scott & Fyfe employs 63 people and is headquarted in Tayport, Fife where the majority of manufacturing still takes place.  75% of products are exported from Scotland to 20 countries across the world and are provided to significant global customers, including 3M.

In December 2012 the company was transformed from fourth generation family ownership into a fully employee-owned enterprise. The Employee Ownership centres on an ethos where Scott and Fyfe works together as one team, with one goal and one vision, to build a stable future for all stakeholders.

The current Finance Director is due to retire in summer 2020 and a replacement is now sought.  The Finance Director carries out a very broad role in the business.  With this in mind, there is an intention to recruit a Financial Controller who will support the finance elements of the position and allow the Finance Director to take on more of a ‘Commercial Lead’ role which will have a 60% finance/40% operations focus.

We are looking for an experienced finance professional, but equally important will be somebody who will have a hands on approach across the whole business.

We are looking for a talented accountant who can bring rigour and energy to this exciting position and who can help drive further efficiencies in the Finance and Operations functions.  The business is predicting a growth year in 2020 and further product diversification and the identification of opportunities to drive up productivity will impact the bottom line positively in the next 5 years.

Package will include salary as well as profit share and long term shares.
