We are proud to be working with a rapidly growing business in West Yorkshire who have recently been significantly invested in by an excellent private equity firm. Due to this exciting investment, the company has a clear growth strategy in place and will now be embarking on a very interesting 12-18 month journey.

The current Financial Controller has created a new opportunity for a Senior Financial Accountant to join his new and highly dynamic finance team to compliment his skill-set. This role has been created due to the future business plans, where the FC will be taking on extra responsibility and progressing within the company. Therefore this is a brilliant opportunity for a Senior Financial Accountant to quickly step into a Financial Controller position.

On a day to day basis your role will consist of, but not be limited to the following:-

-Preparing weekly cash flow statements, and controlling expenditure and cash flow
-Preparation of year-end accounts and statutory accounts
-Liaise with external tax advisors.
-Business partnering across the company to ensure you understand how the whole company operates, acting as a key point of contact for any finance queries
-Preparing the monthly profit and loss, and balance sheet reports
-Monthly review of group balance sheet reconciliations.
-Responsible for the quarterly VAT group returns.
-Preparation of audit schedules and answering audit queries
-Supporting transactional finance colleagues and mentoring them on a day to day basis
-Look at current systems and processes and make any necessary improvements
-Work closely with the PE firm in regards to identifying potential growth opportunities
-Be a constant support to the current FC, taking on new pieces of ad hoc project work when required

To be considered for this opportunity you will be an ambitious qualified accountant who is nearly ready for a move into an FC position. You must have a strong financial accounting background whilst being someone who is prepared to really roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.

This is an excellent opportunity working for a very impressive finance leader within an interesting and rewarding organisation. Please get in touch with Lucy Campbell for further details.
