Job Description

Group Accountant role in a high growth financial services business based in the City of London

Your new company
This business is a high growth insurance business based in the City of London. They're US owned, and have acquired a number of businesses over the last few years. This role sits in their growing group team, and is newly created as the team and business expand. Culturally, they're entrepreneurial and diverse, and are looking for someone bright and ambitious to join them.

Your new role
This is a newly created role that's been created as the business continues to grow. This is a broad finance role within a team of 4, working directly with the FP&A Manager and the Finance Director on a daily basis. You'd have a high level of exposure to the rest of the business as they continue to develop their teams.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Cash flow forecasting
  • Variance analysis
  • Group consolidations
  • Management accounting at group level
  • Assisting with budgeting and forecasting

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to be a fully qualified accountant looking to make their first move from practice. Ideally you will have prepared financial accounts for your clients in practice, but they will consider those coming from a solely audit focused background. You will need to be happy working in a changing environment and be part of a tight knit finance team.

What you'll get in return
In return you'll be given exposure to a range of tasks that are varied, and have the chance to work with senior leadership on a daily basis. You'll also be paid a market leading salary, and be part of the discretionary bonus scheme and have a variety of benefits including private health insurance.
