Job Description

Financial Controller job in London £80,000, responsible for hands on financial management of this real estate focused Family Office.

Your new company
This successful Family Office has a broad range of interests but primarily operates as a real estate business with a large, commercial property investment portfolio. They have seen profitable returns over the years through strategic acquisitions and management, and are actively seeking out new investment opportunities to further deploy its capital.

Your new role
Your Financial Controller role is a key member of the team and will report into the FD whilst managing a small team. With the business activities forecasted to accelerate with an active investor outlook, your lean finance team will be tasked with producing investor reports including analysis of the current portfolio performance and managing and reviewing work of the outsourced property management companies and finance function responsible for financial reporting. Due to the increased activity, financial due diligence and investment appraisals of new acquisitions will also form part of your work.

What you'll need to succeed
You will have a good academic background and likely ACA or ACCA qualified completed whilst at an accountancy practice. The client is keen to meet with candidates who are either still in practice with a number of years PQE, and also candidates who have experience of working in a multinational business/family office with knowledge of fundamental financial and management reporting. In addition, a good interest and understanding of the real estate market will support your ability to provide strategic insights. Strong Excel financial modelling capabilities will be required on a daily basis, and you will have natural communication skills, energy and charisma to fit into this high calibre environment.

What you'll get in return
You'll get a salary of up to £80,000 depending on your experience and various additional benefits. You will also be part of a successful, growing team and dynamic organisation that operates across the UK and one that offers a great breadth of responsibility. This really is a job that will assist your personal development and career mobility and based in their Central London offices, it's easily accessible from around the city.
