Job Description

Financial Accountant role in a major law firm

Your new company
This is a well known law firm looking to hire a Financial Accountant to take ownership of their UK accounts. They specialise in working with high net worth individuals, celebrities and major brands, and their culture is positive with a good flexible working programme and high retention levels.

Your new role
This role takes responsibility for preparing the UK accounts, and reports directly into the Financial Controller. There's a lot of interaction with the rest of the business as you'll be a key person in developing budgets as well as preparing analysis on these.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Ownership of the UK financial statements
  • Assisting with budgeting and forecasting
  • Senior stakeholder exposure
  • Variance analysis
  • Acting as a point of contact for auditors
  • Maintenance of records using Elite
  • Ad hoc project work

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to be a fully qualified accountant with experience preparing financial accounts previously. Experience within an accountancy practice, or legal/professional services environment is desired but not essential.

What you'll get in return
In return you will be part of a well known firm, which offers flexible working to all of their staff. It's a supportive culture, and the Financial Controller is someone that you can learn a lot from. The role is paid competitively, with access to a bonus scheme as well as a flexible benefits package including private medical cover.
