Full Time

Financial Accounting function of large technology company in Basingstoke seek a new addition to the team at graduate level as part of a team where this hire is key to future development and succession planning.

My client is looking for a "can-do" mentality, coupled with excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to cope with a dynamic and changing workplace and strong financial attention to detail.

Ideally you will have a good accountancy and finance or business degree and be looking for your first or second job after a year's experience. You may also have started an ACCA training contract in practice but be keen to move into C&I after 6-18 months work experience.

You will be keen to qualify through either ACCA or CIMA and have the intellectual capability and drive to do so.

This is a challenging role where you can be supported in your exams as you move towards qualifying. Full study support is on offer but this is also a demanding job which will only suit an ambitious and hard working individual. Benefits are the usual blue-chip ones.

The role involves a broad selection of supporting the financial accounting team but also does face the business so my client is looking for someone who enjoys communicating with the operational team. You will work with a qualified accountant who will be your mentor and manager.

Duties (which you and your qualified manager look after) include:

  • Balance sheet reconciliations
  • Investigation into financial statement queries
  • Nominal Ledger transactions (ensuring accuracy)
  • Audit query handling
  • Month end close work
  • P&L analysis
  • Cost accounting
  • SOX work
  • Ad-hoc queries


(In addition to the interpersonal already mentioned)

  • Any experience of UK or US GAAP would be helpful
  • Strong Excel skills
  • Access Skills helpful
  • SAP
  • Excellent planning and organisational skills

Information to provide critical to your application:

Please email in your CV with a note about why this job appeals.

Also (if applicable) please detail your current package & notice period and why you wish to move on.

Applications without this information will be automatically rejected as my client is looking for someone with attention to detail.
