Group Financial Controller

About the role

The Enva Group is a leading waste management, recycling and resource recovery business based in the UK and Ireland with its Head Office situated in Linwood, Paisley. It was acquired by Exponent Private Equity from DCC Plc, a UK publicly quoted support services company, in June 2017. Since then, the business has grown some 70% as a consequence of various “specialist acquisitions”, resulting in turnover increasing from c.£175m to c.£300m, and EBITDA from c.£30m to >£50m.

The business is looking to appoint a new Group Financial Controller (to be based at Group HQ) with significant leadership presence and experience to lead a team of c.40 finance professionals across areas including: management accounts, internal and external reporting, banking and funding, tax and transactional finance related work.  Given the important time in the ownership cycle of Enva, the Group Financial Controller will have exposure to an extremely varied and broad range of finance related activities at the very highest level in the Group.

The incumbent will possess significant experience in managing large finance teams and will have the gravitas to influence, control and provide clear direction. They will be a qualified accountant (probably CA) and will likely have had exposure to private industry and ideally have had private equity involvement.

There are excellent long term prospects for the successful candidate to accelerate their career in a fast paced, but at the same time collegiate and supportive working environment.
