Do you thrive on game changing accounting? Do you want to be part of the team who is revolutionising British banking?
Since 2010, Metro Bank has established itself as the dominant new entrant in the UK Banking market, bringing a genuine alternative to the established high street banks and delivering exceptional growth. A mere 7 years since launch, deposits exceed £10 billion and shareholders have invested capital of over £1.3 billion in our business.
A highly visible opportunity has arisen for an exceptional qualified accountant to create flexible and sustainable finance processes to maintain track with our phenomenal growth.

So what would you be doing?
• Implementing a strong financial control environment
  • Improving the financial reporting environment across the bank, developing systems and processes that optimise every element of the reporting process.
  • Owning month end processes, ensuing that appropriate rigour and challenge is present in reported results.
  • Taking ownership of the financial and operational impacts of new transactions, including capital transactions and loan book acquisitions, ensuring implementation of appropriate accounting policies
  • Enhancing and automating reconciliation and control processes
  • Auditor liaison and ownership of year end statutory processes
  • Providing coaching and support for junior team members
You need to be this kind of person…
• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers
  • Prepared to stick at something – we get nervous if someone has jumped from job to job
  • Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment
We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...
• ACA qualified
  • Strong technical accounting knowledge
  • Very good project management skills, demonstrated by a record of project delivery
  • Enthusiasm and energy to contribute to the team and help it grow
  • Experience within a large consultancy firm is desirable
  • Strong technical accounting knowledge

IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE; Thanks for reading our job advert. We do our very best to bring to life what it’s like working as part of the team at Metro Bank. We also know that sometimes some candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they think they can tick every box. So if you are really excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… go on… why not give it a whirl? Good luck!
