Senior Financial Accountant - £45,000 - £50,000

Have you always wanted a job in a blue-chip business? Do you get excited about Multi-Site setups? I'm currently recruiting for a technically strong Financial Accountant to lead the Financial Accounting team of a multi-site Manufacturing organisation in Newark.

The Senior Financial Accountant role is the type of job that you could do as a 1st time move out of an accountancy practice, or you could we working in a sizeable organisation and looking to grow your career. Either way, you'll be joining a business that has some of the most enviable brands in it's portfolio and the capacity to drive your progression all the way through to site Finance Director roles (we have seen multiple examples where this has happened)

So what is the job?
Firstly, you will be driving your team to deliver the financial reporting for the site. This information is used to challenge performance and drive action, so by definition, it needs to be accurate. You will maintain a rolling forecast and review the results to ensure they are robust and based on sound assumptions.

Further to this, you will ensure that there are strong Financial Controls in place and that they are consistently applied. You will understand the cash performance of the business and influence working capital payments.
Much more though, this is an opportunity to get your foot in the door with a global organisation and to work in a sought after industry that can drive your future career. Who doesn't want that in a job?

Who are you?
For a start, you are a qualified accountant. ACA or ACCA is preferable, but if you can demonstrate a deep knowledge and experience of technical accounting standards then I would still want to hear from you. You be the kind of person that can influence. You can drive decisions and on the back of that, drive behaviours.

You'll be someone who has a keen desire to manage people (or may have done so already) and you will also love leveraging Financial Systems to interrogate data and ensure that it is accurate and properly coded.

Most importantly though, you'll believe that you have the ability to grow your finance career in a blue chip business. To go the extra mile, to push yourself further.

If that sounds like you, then give me a call on and let's talk.
