24 Financial Controller Multinational Travel And Tourism Company

Financial Controller - multinational travel and tourism company

​A multinational Travel and Tourism company was looking for a Financial Controller to be based in Thailand, reporting directly to HQ in Europe.

The previous Financial Controller was promoted to MD while the appointed successor resigned, resulting in this much urgent opening. Our client was looking for an experienced individual as a replacement to look after all financial and fiscal management aspects of the company’s operations.

Argyll Scott was engaged to source for the right talent to fill this vacancy.

The challenge:

  • There were specific requirements for the role, requiring a blue-chip candidate with experiences handling large portfolios and working overseas

  • As the company recently acquired another group, there were concerns on the role’s stability

Our approach:

  • Constant follow-up with HR manager to stay updated on the situation

  • Met with more than 15 candidates to assess for cultural fit through screening of motivation, expectations, experience and skillset

The outcome:

Offers Accepted: Financial Controller

Timespan: One and a half months
