An excellent opportunity on an interim assignment with a high Profile Public sector body in central London, with no public sector experience required. This is a day rate assignment, unusually offering at least a one year contract.

As the accountant for the Commercial division of this organisation, you will work as a de facto business partner for all financial aspects of the services provided. There are a number of traded services provided by the organisation, in some cases selling services back in and in others providing to other public sector bodies or commercial partners. While public sector accounting tends to focus on budget management, this more business-like function

Specifically, this will mean managing and reporting on the P&L; working closely with line managers in particular on costing models and pricing structures; and identifying opportunities for growth and increasing revenue.

You are likely to be a qualified accountant or offer at least four years recent commercial accounting experience. Previous London or Public Sector experience is not essential, but we are looking for someone with an impressive CV of achievement and a strong academic background. You’ll need to bring a positive attitude and demonstrate clear enthusiasm for the opportunity within the role.

You will be covering for a seconded employee, so the role is deemed within IR35 and you need to be comfortable working as such.

The organisation has a strong tack record of retaining good interims so you may find this assignment running considerably longer than the original 12 months. If you are interested the work described, and have the skills and attitude to excel in the role, we’d like to hear from you with a tailored resume as soon as possible
