Job Title: Global Services Director
Department: Global Business Services
Reports to: Head of Global Services
Salary: to £92,500 DOE + Company Benefits
Our client is a leading industry name in the financial sector. They are in the market to recruit for a Global Services Director, working with managers to partner level staff.
This position is at a senior level with an established outsourcing practice. They have been a successful part of the wider group for over 15 years. The department services a portfolio of overseas owned clients that range from subsidiaries of listed groups, venture capitalist and private equity entities and large family owned businesses.
Assistance is provided with bookkeeping, management reporting, VAT compliance and other such matters that would otherwise be completed by an in house accounting team
You must be able to manage a range of individuals from different backgrounds and at different levels of seniority, both internally and at clients. From a client perspective you will be expected to charge around 1,000 hours per year. This will be a combination of client relationship time, understanding clients in order to cross sell, both hot and cold file reviews of work undertaken by others and resolution of more involved queries and accounting/VAT/CIS issues. Technical support is available within the group in all such areas with the director being responsible for identifying when matters need escalating to such a resource.
Directors provide the leadership for Global Services and as such the directors should be seen to exemplify core values and commitments to client service. You will be expected to exercise sound commercial judgement in the management of your portfolio, which will, after a period of transition, be around £1.5m in recurring fees.
