Our client is working to fill a Controller role for a company that has options for both those who want to BE great at what they DO and those who want to GROW. The key is that they have some foundational talents to be of one of the KEY leaders of a plant in Central Nebraska.
The role is a Plant Controller who is a PHENOMENAL leader and developer of talent.
As usual we had the opportunity to get to know the hiring leader and have worked with some of the leaders of this organization before. Within 2 minutes of the first discussion there was laughter. Why does this matter? It tells you about YOUR next leader.
Besides the core qualifications of being able to close the books, do inventory, help leaders understand how to manage cost here are the essential other factors in who will be a great fit for this role:
This is a leader who became an Accountant - not an Accountant who leads because they have to as part of their job responsibilities.
2: Lean & Process Improvement Mindset:
3. Culture - Everyone wants a great culture fit. What does this culture 'look' like and play out like?
Culture that promotes honesty & transparency...no excuses
No BIG Ego's - sorry 100% Team focused - not looking for a superhero
Love new challenges….look at change as an opportunity to grow and gain efficiency versus ‘more work’
Okay challenging the status quo - especially if it's 'not right' - you go against what is wrong and at the end of the day you are highly regarded for it.
