Based out of brand-new offices by East Croydon station, as part of a multinational group, the company has a competitive, fast-paced atmosphere that will suit an ambitious, progressive applicant.
Your new role

You will manage the production of all Group Management and Statutory accounts ensuring that they are prepared accurately, ensuring compliance with the latest accounting standards. You will oversee all tax, regulatory and financial compliance matters, and manage the external audit with KPMG. You will have the opportunity to work closely with senior stakeholders, drive data insights in the company, and add your ideas for continuous improvement.
