Hawthorn was recently recognised by Grant Thornton as one of the fastest growing companies in the region on the basis of profit growth - ranking 53rd in the 'East Midlands Top 200 2017' - so this is an exciting role for an established Finance Manager or someone ready to move into a Financial Controller position.

• Support on Year End preparation of Financial Statements.

• Ad-hoc project based reviewing, be it individually or as part of a team.

• Shared responsibility for the development of the Accounts Team and their appraisals.


About you:-

You'll have:



• Experience within the events industry would be preferable, however, a proven track record in a senior position of an Accounts team and a demonstrable ability to adapt to the changes that the company will be undertaking over the coming 12 - 24 months, will be invaluable.

• Along with a high standard of analytical skills, excel spreadsheet preparation and delivery should also be to a standard where Mapping of spreadsheets and use of Pivot tables is a skill set that is already held to an accomplished level.

• Minimum qualification will be AAT with either experience or further professional qualifications or both.

• With our amalgamation into PSAV a USA based parent company, knowledge and experience of US compliance, US GAAP and Subsidiary Accounting Preparation is very much a priority of successful applicants.
