Full Time
A Group Accountant is required for a very fast growing hotel chain. They currently have more than a dozen sites in prime locations across Europe and, having secured new funding, are poised to at least double this number with additional sites opening around the world over the next couple of years. They are backed by a strong management team and this is a particularly exciting time to join them.

The Group Accountant will report into a Finance Director who has over a decade of sector experience; they will act as a mentor to you and provide you with excellent training and guidance. Your duties & responsibilities will include:
·         Produce consolidated group management accounts each month with full commentary & analysis of KPIs and broader performance criteria.
·         Act as Business Partner to Heads of Department (eg operations, marketing, development etc…); provide analysis & insight to support decision making.
·         Manage all CapEx reporting – prepare a report of actual v budgeted CapEx.
·         Support local hotel accountants with accounting & reporting advice.
·         Prepare weekly cash flows and monthly cash flow forecasts & analysis.
·         Produce consolidated financial & statutory accounts under IFRS at year end.
·         Play a key role in the expansion / site acquisition process (eg due diligence).

The successful candidate for the post of Group Accountant will be an ACA / ACCA who has trained in a Top 30 practice and is either still in practice or has already gained some industry experience. Candidates will be strong all-rounders and must be hands-on in approach (you may need to post the odd journal) as well as having a good eye for detail. You will possess strong analytical skills, and be bright, curious and hungry to learn. Retail, hotel, property or other multi-site experience would be a slight advantage too. Finally, you will be eager to take on responsibility as the company grows and will seek, and be capable of, career progression here.
