At RBH we are looking for exceptional people to provide outstanding service to our guests and who put our people at the heart of everything we do.

The Exciting Opportunity

We have commenced our search for an experienced Financial Controller to lead the Finance team at the Crowne Plaza Docklands. Reporting into the General Manager, you will lead your own team, work collaboratively with the senior management team and HOD's to deliver excellent and accurate financial returns for the hotel and liaise regularly with the hotel management company and hotel owner.

You will be responsible for the finance function including the following:

* Assists and provide financial guidance in the formulation and implementation of Hotel Business Plan, Budget and Key Performance Objectives

* Work with the heads of department to perform ad hoc cost benefit analysis on various projects and support them with their departmental budgets

* Produce and review reconciled monthly P&L and balance sheet for the hotel ensuring discrepancies are reported to the Divisional Financial Controller

* Prepares monthly position of actual results against budget, analyse results and recommend measures required to meet budget

* Assist in the maintenance of the fixed asset register on an annual basis

* Ensure all appropriate brand Standard Operating Procedures are adhered to

* Prepare and manage departmental budgets

This is not a role that works in a silo or completely separate from the rest of the hotel team and Exec weekend shifts may form part of the role (along with the rest of the management team) on a rotational basis.

To be considered for this role you will need:

* Experience of working alongside the GM and senior hotel team to deliver excellent financial returns, preferably with some team management experience/responsibility as well

* A practical approach to your work to ensure the ops team is able to understand and translate the figures

* Fully qualified ACCA, CIMA or equivalent is preferable

N.B. we are expecting high volumes of applications for this role and will not be accepting applications made by direct email, messages on LinkedIn or unsolicited CV's via recruiters/agency. We do not have a sponsorship licence so applicants must already have a legal right to work in the UK in order to be considered for this role.

Where Will You Be Working?

Crowne Plaza London Docklands offers 210 bedrooms and 4-star accommodation in one of London's fastest growing districts and the heart of the 2012 iconic sporting victories. We are just minutes from key event locations such as the ExCeL Exhibition Centre, The O2 Arena and Stratford City. The hotel accommodation offers a perfect place to stay in London, making us the number one choice for a London City Airport hotel connection.

With good transport links, the hotel can be easily accessed by public transport. Royal Victoria train station is about 2 minutes' walk to the hotel. Our employees have been playing a tremendous part in the hotel and our team success, from our employee engagement being above 92%.

The Docklands Suite is the largest of the meeting rooms and also has the facility to be partitioned into East and West Docklands, giving you flexibility and the option to use one room for two purposes. The room also has a civil ceremony license and, with the stunning backdrop over the Royal Victoria Dock, we were awarded in 2018 with a Gold accreditation for overall satisfaction by BDRC, ranking us in the top 4 within our portfolio.
