Job Description

I am looking for a qualified accountant to join a leading Private Equity firm's exceptionally talented Finance division. The role will focus on working closely with alternative investments, covering asset classes that include private equity, hedge funds and real estate.

You will report into the Head of Finance and require you to work collaboratively with international teams, offering your expertise and assistance where needed. The role itself will require you to have some group reporting experience, as is the nature of the investments and their accounting. Regarding the entities you take controllership of, you will also be responsible for preparation of management information, trend analysis and commentary, as well as managing cash flow and liquidity forecasting. Working closely with senior management will require involvement in the preparation of information for quarterly board meetings, and present when required.

The finance team at this business is highly collaborative and fluid, which allows you the scope to work across many different projects, as well as being at the forefront of cutting-edge investments and fundraising.

Experience: -

  • Qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA / CIMA)
  • Prior legal entity controllership experience
  • 2+ years post qualified experience (ideally in an FS institution)
  • Knowledge of US GAAP
  • Reg reporting and tax knowledge (will be useful)
