A leading FCA regulated Central London based financial technology (fintech) firm are looking to hire a Financial Accountant. The job has arisen due to my client's remarkable growth over the last 18 months (including acquiring several new entities).

Candidates should ideally have 2-4 years' relevant finance experience within a lending firm (i.e. mortgages, commercial loans) or financial services. You should have some exposure to SQL. Please don't apply for this role if you have no SQL experience or don't come from a lending environment.

My client has a preference for candidates who are pursuing an accountancy qualification, i.e. ACCA or CIMA.

The role will be reporting in to the CFO and the duties include balance sheet reconciliations, profit and loss analysis, variance analysis, budgeting and forecasting, producing statutory accounts, accruals and prepayments and reviewing the financial control process. You must be able to investigate anomalies with general ledger codes and be able to explain the reasons for the difference.

Candidates will also have to be comfortable doing transactional duties, i.e. maintaining the accounts payable function, bank reconciliations, cash management and maintaining the fixed asset register.

Candidates should ideally have 3-4 years relevant finance experience within a lending firm (i.e. mortgages, commercial loans) or financial services. You should have some exposure to SQL. Please don't apply for this role if you have no SQL experience or don't come from a lending or financial services environment.

It's a very dynamic working environment and candidates must demonstrate previous experience of scrutinising and reviewing processes. Candidates need to be strong enough to challenge senior managers and stakeholders.

There is a significant amount of Excel use in the role, so candidates should be confident building pivot tables and v-look ups from scratch. Exposure to macros would be an excellent bonus.

Candidates should ideally have 3-4 years relevant finance experience within a lending firm (i.e. mortgages, commercial loans) or financial services. You should have some exposure to SQL. Please don't apply for this role if you have no SQL experience or don't come from a lending environment.

This role is incredibly progressive and will suit candidates who are ambitious, proactive and thrive on responsibility. My client is looking for someone who can be a future Financial Controller or CFO.
