You will support in delivering the Group\'s statutory accounts, ensuring annual audits are carried out effectively and efficiently for all jurisdictions, ensuring all regulatory requirements are met regarding the group\'s financial affairs and management of accounting systems and external support including month-end close procedures. Review of monthly balance sheet reconciliations and establishing, implementing, documenting and monitoring the group\'s finance policies and procedures, incorporating both accounting policies and internal procedural controls are your responsibility as well as supporting the centralised finance processing operation, driving efficiency through process improvement and standardisation.
You will influence behaviour both within finance and the wider business for continuous improvement, particularly in areas such as revenue recognition and support in new system implementation (Sage Intacct) ensuring a strong and robust control environment exists.
What you\'ll need to succeed
The successful candidate will be ACA qualified ideally within a top 10 firm and have post qualification in a similar role with experience of consolidations in a complex, international group. Strong financial accounting and tax technical experience within a global business and detailed working knowledge of FRS102 are all a must. You will be results-orientated and service delivery focused and have a high attention to detail. You will be able to work in a busy and fast-paced environment, able to cope with ambiguity and possess a relentless focus on continuous improvement. Strong interpersonal skills, the ability to communicate and manage well at all levels of the organisation are essential, and you will have had good experience of developing and implementing controls and processes. Experience in a Private Equity backed business environment or VC backed (leveraged finance) is desirable.
What you\'ll get in return
An excellent benefits package includes a generous holiday allowance and private healthcare as well as strong career growth opportunities.
