We are recruiting for this Oil & Gas business who are a listed business looking for an Assistant Controller. This is such an interesting role and is very broad, seeing that the head office is pretty small. Whilst the business turnover is very large the HQ is small meaning that this person will get a wide variety of exposure. The role is paying £70,000-75,000 + 20% bonus + Bens. The ideal candidate will be a Big 4 qualified ACA/CA accountant who is at the Manager level and is technically very competent looking for their first step into industry. Or it is indeed someone who is an ACA/CA qualified accountant with financial reporting accountant/group reporting accountant who is looking for their next step. The role doesnt directly manage anybody but indirectly does. There would be great progression with this role into a Group FC role in the future.
