Full Time
Bistro Pierre 1994 is one of the country’s most renowned and highly regarded restaurants offering French cuisine from a locally sourced supplier base. The business currently has 22 sites nationwide. Recent PE investment has provided the means to expand the businesses’ footprint and the ambition is to double the number of sites over the next three years. Alongside this, the business is strengthening its finance function to provide the business with the support to enable this growth.
As a direct consequence, a newly created role has been created for a Property Accountant to support this ongoing expansion. Sitting within a highly skilled finance team, the Property Accountant will be pivotal in ensuring that new restaurant openings and any refurbishment projects are delivered within budget and any commercial opportunities are maximised. The role will be much more than Capex management and cashflow reporting; you will have direct exposure to a high calibre CFO (who will also mentor you) and the founders of the business, and work closely with external quantity surveyors running the projects.
Headlines of the role will include:
• Capex reporting for new and existing sites
• Dilapidation provisions and accounting for rent and rates
• Cash flow forecasting
• Provision of commercial guidance to the property team
• Budgeting and forecasting
• Providing direct input into the board pack on behalf of the property department
• Ad-hoc analysis with clear and concise commercial commentary
The role will suit a dynamic, articulate and driven accountant who is either at the latter stages of their studies or newly qualified. You will relish the opportunity to work with internal and external finance and non-finance stakeholders and be able to take a step back to see ‘the bigger picture’ on what the financial and non-financial information is telling you. Further, you will want to challenge and continually improve the status quo – the business operates in a fast paced and ever changing environment where customer demands are always increasing and competition is fierce. The Property Accountant role will give you unparalleled exposure to both fast track your career, gain invaluable experience in a fast moving PE backed business and put you several steps ahead of the market.
