Partnering with the local leadership team the Finance Director will assist the CEO on the development of the commercial and operational strategy to achieve the organization’s long term vision of becoming The World’s Most Admired Travel Services Provider, whilst ensuring that expected shareholder returns are achieved and governance is maintained.
The ideal candidate for this role will have a thorough understanding of Financial and Management Accounting with a strong focus on Governance, risk management and financial planning & reporting.
