The Investment Management Finance team at Goodman Masson are working with a FTSE 100 Investment Manager towards a Financial Accountant position. The role is intended for someone making their first move from practice to industry.

The business is one of the largest and most prestigious investment managers in the world and offers a wide scope for progression, further professional training and development. In additional to a diverse and challenging role, you will be offered a great work-life balance (much more so than in banking) and exceptional on-site facilities, including an onsite restaurant, free gym and free GP service.

Your responsibilities:

- Performing analytical reviews of financial information on a regular and ad-hoc basis
- Preparation of monthly balance sheet reconciliations
- Managing the general ledger and associated consolidations
- Liaising with outsourced service providers
- Preparing group regulatory returns
- Producing regular finance papers for legal entity board meetings
- Producing statutory financial statements and liaising with auditors

Further requirements:

- Build strong working relationships within Finance and other business areas
- Demonstrate a high level of awareness of the implications of trends within financial data
Your profile:

- Recently qualified chartered accountant, likely (but not necessarily) from a practice background with audit and / or accounts preparation experience
- We have no preference towards top- or mid-tier firms
- Financial services experience not a pre-requisite
- Candidates who have graduated from practice into industry and have a couple of years' in-house experience will also be considered for a more senior role within the team
