Looking for the future Head of Finance
STL is looking for the future Head of Finance to take over in 3 years time. Kathy Miles has been STL’s Head of Finance for the last 16 years but Kathy is planning to step down in 3 years’ time and STL is looking for her replacement now in order to train them up to be able to take on the role when Kathy retires.
Kathy said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to learn the role and be in a position to gradually take over the financial reins of STL over the next couple of years.”
She added, “The role has many elements to it from payroll, management accounts, VAT and credit cards to managing the fleet of vehicles so no day is ever the same! I actually started as a book keeper and grew in the job with STL supporting me through my ACCA accountancy exams. I now run the whole finance team including billing.”
As a local employer, STL is always keen to recruit the very best people and invests in them through training. The ideal candidate will be someone who already has a career in finance but is not necessary qualified and is looking to further their long term career with a more challenging role.
Brendon Cross STL’s MD said, “STL values its people and we are a good employer offering flexible working hours, encouraging remote working, providing a great ethos as well as being a fun company to work for. This is reflected in the fact that 50% of staff have been with STL for over 16 years! It’s not often that we look for someone quite so far in advance of someone leaving, but we want to train the right person up to fill this important role of future head of Finance, following in Kathy’s footsteps.”
The current vacancy is for an Accounts Assistant who will work closely alongside Kathy to learn the ropes and develop their accounting skills. For further details of this position and our other valuable positions please visit https://www.stlcomms.com/our-people/careers/
