Where you'll work

Duties

This includes Holding entities and "multi-activity" entities (including the Group's largest trading entity), plus the audit of the Shared Service Centre transactions.

A very important element of the role is the ability to build relationships with the finance team and wider business to deliver defined improvements to the statutory reporting process.

Experience you will need

In addition to this, applicants will have gained in-house role experience including interaction with external auditors. Excellent technical accounting and IFRS knowledge are essential as well as the ability to build strong professional relationships to support continuous improvement within the statutory accounting process
