Group Accountant

c£40,000 + Bonus + Benefits

Bristol  CCR1181

This is an excellent opportunity to join a fast moving, cash rich, and highly profitable global business. The position, which is broader than the title suggests, is newly created and offers a good measure of exposure to influential managers as well as Plc Directors. Continued growth and increased demand on the head office finance team has led to this requirement, which is also seen as a developmental role for succession planning.

Working closely within a small head office team, led by the Group Financial Controller and Group Financial Director, you will be responsible for : – consolidating sections of the  Group management accounts; overseeing the group capital expenditure and headcount approval processes; assisting the Group Financial Controller with legal and statutory reporting requirements; assisting the Group  Treasurer with  treasury related accounting  including  FX and Money Market transactions, and regular cash reporting. You will also support the Group Finance Director and Controller with adhoc projects such as subsidiary operational performance analysis, through to acquisition related accounting. Working with other senior members of the finance team you will also form part of the global Internal Audit team, so international travel can be expected. This team is not only responsible for compliance and operations reviews, but also for providing additional resource worldwide as and when required.

You should be an “upper quartile” graduate, qualified accountant (CIMA, ACCA, ACA) who is meticulous, can see the “bigger picture”, and can work to tight deadlines. Preferably, your accounting skills will have been developed within a multinational, multicurrency environment operating under IFRS. This role requires a good team player who is highly motivated, confident, and can communicate comfortably and effectively at all levels, and with different nationalities. A willingness to go the extra mile, the ability to be flexible in your approach to work, and proficiency in the MS suite are essential.  Career development opportunities exist for the right candidate.
