The client is a well known company with extensive property interests across the UK with over 600 sites. They are now looking to appoint an experienced finance professional to act as their profit recovery accountant. It is an accounting job with a difference which may appeal to numerate individuals who are also computer literate. Your mission will be to detect and recover overpayments (or undercharges) made to third parties. It is challenging and rewarding work - occasionally frustrating, but often fun. Working in a professional but informal atmosphere, you will enjoy problem-solving situations, using your own initiative. This is investigative work but in no way is this anything like Internal Auditing. The objective is to recover as much 'lost profit' as possible and as a result earn a share of the savings. The earnings potential is uncapped! Basically you will earn up to 15% of whatever you save up to £500,000 and a sliding scale thereafter. Finding savings of between £250,000 and £500,000 p.a. is realistic based on previous performance. It could be more. Candidate Profile - Good accounting background - Numerate with good IT skills - Excel to advanced level - Property sector experience would be useful - Oracle experience would be desirable - Ability to interpret leases / agreements - Track record of highlighting improvements and delivering the changes - Happy working in the detail - Strong project and time management skills
