We are looking for a native level/fluent German Reporting Accountant to join the EMEA financial shared service centre for an international manufacturer with $6 billion annual revenue.

Reporting to the EMEA Financial Manager and German business units, you'll be solely responsible for all transactional reconciliation, closure and reporting of (AR/AP/GL) accounts on a monthly, quarterly & yearly basis for this area of the business.

Responsibilities include (although not limited to):

  • Maintenance of financial records, month end journals, P&L reporting
  • Reconciliations; investigation of discrepancies
  • Monthly VAT returns; annual German tax returns

This is an opportunity to move on from a purely transactional level role into something with much more responsibility and autonomy. In addition:

  • You should be driven and personable, with strong numeric and problem-solving qualities.
  • You should have Excel reporting experience (pivots & v-lookup); SAP is desirable, but non-essential.
  • US GAAP & German VAT knowledge desirable.
  • Experience in an EMEA/European SSC (or BPO) is desirable.
  • Examples of previous process improvements would be great.

People relocating within the UK or from mainland Europe are more than welcomed, but should note that a car will likely be necessary on a longer-term basis - those with a driving licence are therefore preferable!

The company prides itself on family values, a strong sense of inclusion and allowing individuals to gain exposure to other business areas. Set in the beautiful rural county of Gloucestershire in a modern office, this is a great long-term opportunity.
