First and foremost, this candidate will be tasked with developing the external and internal reporting practises in order to ensure timely performances across the group.

On offer therefore is varied exposure and senior interaction, as the below outlines.

Responsibilities:

  • Preparing statutory accounts for group UK entities

About the company:

My client is an international company within the global shipping services space. With four UK entities, the company is continuously growing, undertaking two multi-million pound acquisitions in the last 12 months. This candidate's purpose will be as much to support commercial expansion as much as it will be to ensure that current accounts are maintained in an accurate manner.

About You:

  • Candidates applying for this position should hold a full ACA/ACCA qualification
  • Whilst industry experience is preferable, the client will consider candidates who have experience auditing PLCs, or candidates who have qualified in a PLC.
  • Candidates should be of a self-starting and diligent mind set

  • Up to date knowledge of IFRS.

Next Steps:

Please give me a call on 02075098139 so that we can catch up on your thoughts towards this opportunity. I'd also be keen to share more information with you on the company's profile and package on offer.
