Job Description

Group Financial Controller - Travel - £100,000 - £120,000 - London

Your new company
I am currently working with a high growth travel platform looking to hire a Group Financial Controller to join the London team of this global brand. The business is going through some exciting periods of change and offers the opportunity to join the business with the autonomy to drive process, controls and systems changes that will facilitate continued growth and expansion for the business.

Your new role
You will be responsible for a broad array of BAU and change/project responsibilities including;

  • Managing the groups consolidated monthly reports across all entities.
  • Focus at entity level in preparation of the brands accounts
  • Review and appraisal of current controls and process with a view to develop and improve
  • Lead on the audit process
  • Management of half-year and yearly statutory reports to ensure timeliness and accuracy
  • Leadership and management of staff

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to be a qualified accountant from practice with proven financial accounting and reporting in a commercial business. Experience with process and controls development are essential and exposure to a high-volume, low-value transaction basis would be highly beneficial. You will need to demonstrate a willingness to roll up your sleeves and get into the detail from an accounting perspective. This role will also require circa 25% travel, so you must be comfortable with that.

What you'll get in return
You will be rewarded with the opportunity to join an exciting brand, with the chance to make your mark on the shape and direction of the finance team over the next few years. The role offers great global exposure and the autonomy to drive changes.
