The Vardy name is well known in the motor industry, having established one of the most successful motors groups in Europe - Reg Vardy plc. Today Peter Vardy is the most exciting new name in the motor industry. Since our launch in 2006, we have grown to a turnover of nearly £400Million, have 800 colleagues and an industry leading RoS. A young and vibrant business, PVL has a mission to offer something different to both colleagues and guests.  PVL has 12 dealer showrooms across Scotland specialising in BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, MINI, Vauxhall and Commercial Vans. We have the determination to be the best place to work and best place to buy. We have won numerous accolades including Best Small Motor Retail Group at the AM Awards 2014 and we have been in the Sunday Times Top 100 Employers for five years. We have an eye to the future too and a focus on the potential of digital.
With continued plans for ambitious growth, PVL is looking to appoint a commercially astute Finance Director who can help to shape the strategy for the future whilst inspiring the Finance teams through continuing change. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, Peter Vardy, this is a key main board position and requires a high calibre, dynamic senior finance professional with experience gained in a fast moving organisation. The successful candidate will be a confidante of the CEO and will drive commercial performance by pin-pointing trends and opportunities for further growth and helping to support the strategic direction of the business. Whilst motor trade knowledge and experience would be advantageous this is not imperative if a track record of financial success and governance can be demonstrated in a similar dynamic business environment.
