Bring your German accounting experience to a beautiful part of the UK.

The opportunity to build an international career in a beautiful, inexpensive part of the UK doesn't arrive every day. The chance to do that in a leading global chemical company, improving the quality of life for consumers everywhere, is a very rare opportunity indeed.

Yet that opportunity is yours - if you have the accounting experience to join a UK-based team that's responsible for overseeing the German businesses of a world-class, world-wide company.

The company? Venator, a leading name in the development and manufacture of intelligent ingredients used in thousands of everyday items, from plastics and pharmaceuticals to building materials and water purification - an international working environment located in one of the UK's most beautiful counties (with 26 other world-class facilities worldwide).

Your role? You will help manage day-to-day financial, statutory and fiscal reporting (such as US GAAP reporting, statutory accounts in German GAAP (HGB), VAT, compliance, intrastat and government statistics/returns) for multiple entities - co-ordinating all external audit activity in line with budgeted and audited costs. That will mean communicating daily with Site Directors and Site Controllers in Germany, as well as centralised teams in Tax, Treasury, Accounts Payable, Customer Services - playing an important part in the General Ledger accounting work for one of Venator's most valuable markets.

The location? A place which gives you the best of all worlds: an inexpensive part of the UK, close to Newcastle upon Tyne, the North Yorkshire Moors National Park - and a short drive to a beautiful coastline.

What will you need? A recognised UK accounting qualification or international equivalent and degree-level education, with knowledge of preparing financial and statutory accounts in German GAAP (and ideally experience in US GAAP or IFRS), with good experience in Accounting and General Ledger. We will also consider outstanding candidates who are not fully-qualified - if you're prepared to continue your professional studies here in the UK.

If you have accountancy experience and want to be part of the team managing the German market for a world-leading company, while enjoying life in the UK, please call Paul at Paul Card Recruitment, today for an informal chat. Alternatively, please click 'Apply'. If you don't have an up to date CV, don't worry, just send what you have, and we can go from there.

Everybody will receive a response.
