Financial Controller, Mainfreight – Chicago, IL

| National Support | Chicago, IL

An exciting and significant leadership opportunity has become available in the Americas where we are now looking for someone to step-up and lead our finance team in the role of Financial Controller for our entire American business, based in Chicago.

This is a very senior leadership role and one in which we obviously want to promote from within. Whilst this role does come with the need for the successful candidate to have a specific skillset – knowledge and experience in finance and accounting; it is also a role where ample time will be made available in which to learn from our current financial controller, and where should it be required, an extended period of guidance and support given as we work through an in-depth handover.

Whilst this role comes with much responsibility from a finance standpoint, it also comes with significant leadership responsibilities given the part the successful person will play within our Americas leadership team. As we continue to put much effort into strengthening our culture and ensuring a significantly improved foundation in which to build on, much work is still needed to ensure these same cultural fundamentals are alive and well, and deeply embedded from a finance perspective. After all, the uniqueness and importance of our weekly P&Ls, in conjunction with the need for our Branch Managers to own this responsibility, will forever be integral to the long-term success of our business.

This is an opportunity that does not come about very often, thus for the right individual it is one that will bring about a big step up in their Mainfreight career; this will be a challenging role but a very rewarding one given the exciting plans we have for our business in the Americas.

If you think you have what it takes to take on this role, and do so with a passion and desire that mirrors that of some of our newer leaders here in the Americas, then please reach out to Jason Braid before Friday, May 26th.
