This is a newly created role with a clear progression path towards a Group Financial Controller role or maybe into a senior commercial finance within the group.

*Assisting in the development of reporting systems
*Supporting the development of financial policies and processes
*Supporting numerous commercial projects, acquisitions and investment proposals
*Accounting for acquisitions gaining an understanding of the business and fair value adjustments
*Acting as the main point of contact for any technical accounting questions
*Analysis results and preparing management / board reports
*Proving support to the CFO and Group Financial Controller on Ad hoc projects

What we are looking for:

*ACA Qualified (top tier firm)
*Could be straight from practice (big 4 ideally) or a fast-paced, blue chip industry environment
*Good knowledge of accounting standards and application IFRS
*Highly self-motivated and strives to continually improve ways of working
*Confident, credible communicator - can build relationships with a range of senior stakeholders and also translate highly technical information to those not as savvy
