Permanent, Full-time

Your new company
A leading and globally recognised automotive organisation is actively seeking a Senior Financial Accountant (Qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA) to join their lean and dynamic finance team. The role will be reporting into the Group Financial Controller and will aim to provide technical accounting support to the business in the capacity of financial accounting, controls and process improvement.

Your new role
As the successful candidate you will be responsible for all aspects of the management and financial reporting. This includes all month end activity, including P&L analysis, fixed assets, depreciation, multi-entity reconciliations, variances, and commentary. Further management reporting duties are contributing to the business and forecasting processes. Financial reporting responsibilities will entail production of the statutory accounts of UK, US and Italian entities, alongside audit scheduling. Wider duties will likely be tax related including quarterly VAT preparation and reviewing Italian VAT, together with assisting in transfer pricing and industry regulation updates.

What you'll need to succeed
The successful candidate will be ACA, ACCA or CIMA qualified with at least 2 years post-qualified experience, in conjunction with a technical accounting background that has provided extensive understanding of FRS102 and group accounting procedures. In addition, you will demonstrate confident and proactive communication, with a clear ability to work autonomously and as part of a team. Adaptability and problem-solving mindset will stand you in good stead, along with comfort under pressure working to tight deadlines. Knowledge of Italian GAAP and Microsoft Dynamics AX would be preferred, but not essential.

What you'll get in return
This is a permanent and full-time opportunity offering upto £60,000 (experience dependent) plus benefits, alongside the chance to join a globally recognised and growing organisation that is a leader in its industry.
