Job Details

Your new company
Hays is delighted to be partnering with a market leading distribution, sales and marketing group, to add an exceptional qualified Management Accountant to their finance team. You will be joining a multinational group involved in all sectors, with a reputation for long-term, tailored solutions which add value to their partners. They have ambitious growth plans and a strong sustainability message. Based out of smart, corporate offices in Sutton, you will be joining a fast-paced UK finance team. The company are looking for a finance leader of the future: someone who has the potential to grow with the role and work closely with the Financial Controller.

Your new role
Your new role will play a pivotal role in all elements of the UK Finance team. Reporting to the UK Financial Controller, your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Production of full monthly management accounts
  • Balance sheet reconciliations, investigating and resolving discrepancies
  • Collaborating with the Financial Controller to review business processes, identifying opportunities for change and improvement
  • VAT & other government reporting
  • Monthly variance analysis of OPEX
  • Implementing and reviewing controls related to group risk management strategies
  • Assisting in supporting business intelligence software
  • Management of the small general accounting team
  • Adhoc projects

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a qualified accountant (ACCA, ACA, CIMA or equivalent) with experience producing monthly management accounts in a complex multi-currency environment. You will bring excellent IT skills including Microsoft Excel (VLOOKUP, pivot tables), and analytical tools e.g. Power BI. You'll need strong communication skills with financial and non-financial stakeholders, with line management experience beneficial but not essential. You will be adaptable, ambitious, and able to manage multiple deadlines effectively. You will have the right to work in the UK, and have a plan to reliably commute to Sutton.

What you'll get in return
You will receive a competitive salary of up to £60,000 depending on experience, with a discretionary bonus depending on company and individual performance. You will work on a hybrid pattern, and receive a generous holiday entitlement. You will be joining a company that is committed to your professional growth, and values internal progression.
