Job Description

Harwoods Group represents the prestigious car brands Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Jaguar, Land Rover, and McLaren as well as the truck brand MAN. We also operate three accident repair centres. We have eighteen businesses across Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire. Established since 1931, we are a successful and progressive third generation family owned business and rank #11 in the Sunday Times ‘Top Track 250’, which league tables the UK’s private companies with a turnover of <£650m and <5,000 staff. In 2018 our turnover was £636m and we employ 1,000 people.

Our vision is to ‘create memorable experiences’, as we believe our primary role is to add maximum value to the customer journey. We also aim to make working at Harwoods as memorable and enjoyable as possible and benefit from above average employee engagement.

With 98% of staff scoring positively when asked ‘I am fully committed to doing my best for the company”, we’re a safe bet for a job and a rewarding career.

Due to forthcoming retirement we have a rare opportunity to appoint a new Finance Director to head our Accounts team. Reporting to the Chief Executive and working closely with the Senior Management Team, you will be responsible for the finance function of the organisation, and provide financial advice and support to help senior managers make key decisions.

It is essential that candidates are fully-qualified (ACCA, ACA or ACMA current member) and have a CV which demonstrates success at group FC or FD level with either a multi-site automotive retailer, or a large group-based business with several branches or sites.  The successful person will have shown commitment to previous employers and will have worked effectively in a family-owned business culture.

If you are looking for a new challenge and believe you have the skills and qualities required for this exciting and demanding role, then please email your CV to our consultant Clair Berry.  Please include a short covering email explaining why you want the position and what you feel you can bring.
