A leading and incredibly prestigious multinational legal firm are looking to hire an Assistant Management Accountant. The job has arisen due to my client consolidating its considerable market share to remain ahead of her competitors.

My client has a preference for candidates who are pursuing an accountancy qualification, i.e. ACCA or CIMA. Candidates should ideally have 2-4 years relevant management accounting experience within legal or professional services.

The role will be reporting in to the CFO and the duties include balance sheet reconciliations, profit and loss analysis, variance analysis, budgeting and forecasting, producing statutory accounts, accruals and prepayments and reviewing the financial control process.

Candidates should ideally have 2-4 years relevant management accounting experience within legal or professional services.

Candidates will also have to be comfortable doing transactional duties, i.e. maintaining the accounts payable function, bank reconciliations, cash management and maintaining the fixed asset register.

It's a very dynamic working environment and candidates must demonstrate previous experience of scrutinising and reviewing processes. Candidates need to be strong enough to challenge senior managers and stakeholders.

There is a significant amount of Excel use in the role, so candidates should be confident building pivot tables and v-look ups from scratch. Exposure to macros would be an excellent bonus.

Candidates should ideally have 2-4 years relevant management accounting experience within legal or professional services.

This role is incredibly progressive and will suit candidates who are ambitious, proactive and thrive on responsibility. My client is looking for someone who can be a future Financial Controller or CFO.
