With a rich history stretching back over 200 years, as a multi award-winning textile manufacturer, Camira Fabrics is a proud British and Yorkshire success story that now spans the globe in the markets it serves.

The chance, therefore, to become their next CFO is a unique opportunity and should be an essential consideration as a career step for anyone with the required skills, experience and gravitas to help carry on the legacy of what has been built.

You would be joining an impressive, highly capable and delivery focused leadership team who need their CFO to have a similar attitude, drive and naturally competitive nature.

Job Description

You would be joining an impressive, highly capable and delivery focused leadership team who need their CFO to have a similar attitude, drive and naturally competitive nature.

It is these qualities that have developed a very effective, fun, enjoyable, collaborative board dynamic which promotes discussion, challenge, new ideas, and individual accountability but all ultimately with the ethos of making the decisions that are best for the business and its future.

As well as taking on the core responsibilities of running well performing finance and IT teams, it is expected you will be pro-actively involved and influential in operational and commercial areas of the company. You will act as a true business partner not only to the board, but to all aspects of the business where finance can add value to decision making, helping it make the right calls, the right considered investments and ultimately to help enable and drive top and bottom line growth.

The Successful Applicant

With supportive PE backers and a credible, well defined growth plan, Camira is looking to deliver a successful corporate event in the medium term that will provide a strong return for investors and shareholders alike. The CFO will clearly be fundamental in helping execute this transaction and so prior experience in a PE backed business/sale process/M & A is highly desired, as is strong experience working in a complex manufacturing business - perhaps even with a similar multi-site and/or international footprint.

This is the sort of exceptional CFO role that does not present itself often and represents a chance to join a truly impressive business at an exciting point in its history. The successful candidate will be able to play a key role in a team, and journey where there is great opportunity to deliver on an exciting growth plan, ultimately leading to a successful transaction.

What's on Offer

On offer is a highly competitive salary and package including high potential annual bonus and equity participation.Hybrid working practises are in place - minimum 3 days per week on-site in Mirfield with some limited international business travel expected as required.
