  • Organise, review and summarise the findings from the Firm's cold file reviews.
  • Produce and issue the monthly compliance reports.
  • Maintain the audit register, professional subscriptions and corporate memberships.

As the successful candidate you will either be working in a compliance role or potentially within an externally facing audit role with the desire to move into compliance. You will also have:

  • Professional accountancy qualification (i.e. ICAEW, ACCA or equivalent) with at least 2 years post-qualification experience
  • Good working knowledge of accounting standards (UK GAAP and IFRS), Auditing Standards (ISAs), Ethical Standard(s) and the UK regulatory framework (e.g. QAD and AQR).
  • Previous experience of:
    • working in a similar compliance / technical position;
    • providing compliance and technical support;
    • responding to regulatory information requests;
    • writing and delivering training and compliance materials; and
    • working autonomously and as a member of a team.
  • Recognised and evidenced ability to:
    • deal with complex, multi-faceted issues and reach clear evidenced based conclusions; and
    • communicate verbally and in writing in a clear and concise manner.
  • Strong administrative skills (i.e. time and project management).
