At Prudential we’re absolutely focused on getting the best outcomes for customers. Ours is one of the most profitable and trusted names in life and pensions, and we lead the market in a number of pension products.

The Reporting Development Accountant will have a key role to play in the implementation of IFRS 9 and 17, a significant change to the IFRS reporting landscape for insurance companies.

  • Delivering proforma financial statements for the UK&E life insurance companies

  • Providing technical advice to other areas of Finance and the business on the impact of IFRS 9 & 17

Your skills will ideally include:

  • Strong influencing skills, able to grasp complex concepts and technical details quickly and communicate them effectively with a number of stakeholders with varying degrees of IFRS knowledge

  • Ability to critically challenge technical requirements and propose workable solutions in a time sensitive manner

  • Ability to make recommendations that balance technical requirements, commercial outcomes and control/process implications

  • Good understanding of applying materiality and audit requirements in implementing new accounting standards.

To succeed in this role, you will be a fully qualified accountant with significant accounting and reporting expertise within the Financial Services Industry, preferably in the life insurance sector.

People who work at Prudential agree that ours is a great place to work with a brilliant team spirit. It’s also an innovative, high-performing commercial environment that’s totally focused on customers.
