Job Description


Elevation Senior Finance are the retained partner to Quickline Communications in the appointment of a Finance Director. If you are an ambitious Financial Controller who is a ready to take the next step or a Finance Director with recent hands-on financial management experience, this could be the role for you!

Founded in 2008, Quickline delivers fast reliable internet connectivity to Business, Public Sector and Residential customers via an independent Fibre and Fixed Wireless Access network, alongside partner networks. Following completion of a private equity financing deal in August 2019 providing up to £12m of funding, Quickline is embarking on an exciting growth plan which they feel a Finance Director would become an important part of. Quickline has a very high focus on sales and bringing value to both their customers and shareholders and are seeking someone that believes in those values and can contribute the company’s future success.

As the Finance Director at Quickline, you will be responsible for the leadership and development of the finance department locally in Hessle and for building a close working relationship with both the majority shareholder, Big Blu Broadband Group plc (BBB), and the private equity investors. It is essential that applicants have a good business/commercial understanding, combined with a strong professional financial background and a willingness to ‘roll their sleeves up’ when required.

In addition, a key objective will be to provide a business partnering service to the senior leadership team, delivering first-class financial information and analysis to support strategic decision making.

Due to the size and dynamic nature of the business, the Finance Director position will be a varied and reactive job role – core duties, will include:

- Provide financial analysis and advice to help shape Quickline’s overall strategy and direction
- Instil a commercial approach and financial awareness throughout the organisation to help improve business performance
- Ensure that the accounts and financial reporting are completed effectively and efficiently in line with BBB and private equity investor standards
- Provide the Quickline management team with the financial information, forecasts and analysis required to support the continued growth and success of the business
- Provide financial input to all new bids and tenders
- Enhance and develop the financial and accounting systems in line with the requirements of the organisation

This is a rare and exciting job opportunity that will provide its incumbent the platform to mould a finance department, develop financial processes and most importantly contribute as a key part of a management team in a business that ambitious growth plans. My client feels this role would best suit an ambitious qualified finance professional who has recent experience of leading a finance team, providing commercial insight as part of a management team and has a willingness to be reactive to the needs of a growing SME business. Experience of working in a PE backed business would be preferred but is not essential. If this role matches your skills and ambition, this is not an opportunity to be missed.
