I am currently working with an ambitious property company based in the West London area who are looking to recruit an Assistant Group Accountant to join their dynamic finance team.

You will be responsible for assisting the Group Accountant in providing accounting support to facilitate financial management.

You will assist in delivering accurate and timely management information to ensure our managers and leaders have financial information readily available to make informed financial choices whilst driving financial performance. As part of your role you will work seamlessly across teams within the finance and IT directorate, leading on the management company's year end statutory accounts and assisting with posting end of month journals, quarterly balance sheet reconciliations and external reports.

You will use your sound technical accounting knowledge to review existing processes and procedures to drive change as well as ensuring all financial information is in line with compliance policies and procedures.

The right candidate will be part qualified with a solid understanding of basic accounting skills. You will ideally be looking to qualify over the next few years. Experience of using Excel for reporting and analysis is key, so advanced excel skills are needed. Prior experience of working in a large finance organisation will also be preferable.

Above all, attention to detail is paramount.
