Financial Accountant opportunity with an international corporate based in North Oxfordshire

Financial Accountant
Permanent, full-time

Your new company
A leading and international business based in North Oxfordshire is actively seeking a Finalist or Qualified ACA/ACCA Financial Accountant. The business specialises in industry leading supply chain solutions and the role will sit within the Central finance team and report to the Financial Controller, with the view to support the wider business with a range of financial reporting and technical accounting matters.

Your new role
As the successful candidate you will be responsible for group accounting duties including consolidations, lease and FX hedge accounting, alongside on-going compliance with IFRS. Furthermore, you will also own the balance sheet control and reconciliation processes, which includes transactional review. An integral part of the role will be preparation of the statutory accounts and liaison with auditors, which will involve drafting from trial balance and co-ordinating local as well as group audit testing and reviews. Finally, you will be expected to actively contribute towards continuous improvement projects in both process and systems, as well as provide ad hoc reporting upon request.

What you'll need to succeed
To be successful you will likely be a practiced or industry trained accountant, recently qualified in ACA or ACCA and looking for a first or second move as a qualified accountant, alongside possessing several years of technical accounting experience. In addition, you will demonstrate excellent attention to detail, communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders and show comfort in managing workload to meet deadlines. Being a team player with a keen eye for efficiencies and improvements will also stand you in good stead. Strong understanding of IFRS is essential, with prior SAP exposure being desirable.

What you'll get in return
This is a permanent and full-time position offering up to £45,000 (experience dependent) plus benefits, alongside the opportunity to join an international and continually growing organisation, which will provide company-wide exposure with a dynamic team.
