University in Manchester looking to recruit a management accountant into their research team

Your new company
I am delighted to be working with an one of the best Universities in the UK in order to recruit a management accountant into their research finance team. They have a background in developing their staff and promoting internally, so this is a great opportunity to improve your career prospects.

Your new role
You will work closely with the head of faculty finance and you will be involved in financial planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting processes for research activity in the faculty. This is critical to the role and you will have a great deal of exposure to non-finance stakeholders across the faculties. You will also manage a small team and ensure that all processes and procedures are high quality.

What you'll need to succeed
You must be a qualified accountant (ACA/CIMA/ACCA) or close to completing your qualification with experience of working within large or complex organisations. As you are working with potentially difficult budget holders it is critical that you have strong communication skills. If you have experience as a manager it would be beneficial.

What you'll get in return
This is an excellent opportunity to join a highly regarded organisation within Manchester. The person who was previously in this position was promoted internally which give you an idea of how progressive this position is. There is also a good salary with the position and an excellent pension alongside this.
