Job Description

Financial Accountant role in a City law firm

Your new company
This is a mid-tier City based law firm which has seen consistent impressive growth. They like to grow organically, taking promoting and hiring new partners each year. They're specialists in Corporate law, and work with a range of clients including high net worth individuals as well as businesses across a range of sectors. They're an impressive firm that still has a tight-knit feel, and a reputation for delivering high quality service.

Your new role
This is a brand new role created to plug a skills gap in the team. At the moment there's a Financial Controller as well as four cashiers/accounts assistants. As they plan to implement a new practice management system over the next 18 months, the FC now needs a qualified accountant to take ownership of their day to day. He's happy to train someone, but the role will cover the following:

  • Management reporting
  • Partnering with teams/senior leadership
  • Supervising the work of juniors
  • Leading the audit
  • Ad hoc project work including profitability analysis

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to be a fully qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA) with an interest in taking on a broad role with lots to learn. This is a challenging role for someone looking to move into an in house finance team from practice. You will need to be comfortable working with juniors as well as senior leadership too.

What you'll get in return
In return, you'll be part of an impressive and supportive business. The Financial Controller is really keen to train, and comes from a practice background himself so will be well placed to support you and is someone you can learn a lot from. You will be paid a competitive salary, with access to a discretionary bonus scheme and flexible benefits.
