The Role:

We're seeking a dynamic yet methodical Assistant Financial Controller to support the month end processes of our UK & Irish entity, by providing robust planning and reporting activities, whilst ensuring effective financial control procedures are in place and being followed effectively. This will include supporting and maintaining the Finance Compliance and internal frameworks, accrual and provision preparations, intercompany and general ledger reconciliations and accounting close. You'll take ownership and responsibility for the weekly, monthly and management reporting files and trackers, ensuring all accounts are fully reconciled and have supporting documentation.

This will ideally include experience of managing financial ledgers, manufacturing costing and project work.

Your strong communication and interpersonal skills mean you enjoy working as part of a team and you're comfortable liaising at all levels of seniority. You have strong organisational and time management skills, always happy to support your colleagues, but also able to work on your own initiative taking responsibility for resolving issues and queries. You're not fazed by changeable work environments and shifting priorities and are used to holding people to account to drive continuous improvements. Balanced with this, you're known for being proactive, positive and welcoming, and someone who takes pride in doing a good job.
