An exciting opportunity has arisen for a strong Group Financial Accountant to join a private equity-backed business which disrupted the market with its revolutionary use of technology. They are extremely high-growth and are a household name, rapidly expanding globally.

With year-end fast approaching and audit to follow, they are looking for a technically strong Group Financial Accountant to support the team in this newly created role. The business is ambitious and wants to continue its growth, they have recently made acquisitions in the US and are in the process of integrating the businesses.

This means you can make the role your own and add value in this market leading business by getting involved in the various projects they have ongoing, including a potential sale. This is an interim role for 3-6 months initially, reporting into the Group Financial Controller but is likely to extend as you will have the ability to take part in multiple projects.

What you will be doing:
  • Preparation of consolidated group reports across 10-12 entities including the newly acquired US entities.
  • Working with a highly regarded Group FC to produce Financial Statements and establish best practice processes across the business.
  • Supporting the year-end process
  • Supporting the audit process to follow
  • Liaising with team members and colleagues across the business to identify skill gaps and identify additional responsibilities that could be taken on to the permanent employee (still to recruit)
  • Ad-hoc project work

About you:
  • ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent
  • Experience going through a year-end / audit
  • Experience in group consolidation (10-12 entities ideally)
  • Experience working in a business £300m+ or plc environment (desirable)
  • Experience in US to UK business units

If this role sounds like a strong match to your skill set or you'd like to find out more, please get in touch with Shamieka Lynch at Finatal. Don't worry if you don't have an up-to-date CV, we can still have a discussion.
