Supporting the Head of Finance with implementing and maintaining a robust financial controls environment, you will take complete ownership for the month end processes for the division, covering multiple entities across the UK and EMEA.

  • Ensure all entities are closed in line with deadlines, and accounts prepared in line with IFRS and group policies
  • Ownership of financial performance reporting across business divisions
  • Supervise the controls team, providing leadership and direction whilst maintaining morale and development.
  • Prepare monthly journal entries in the GLincFX, prepaid, accruals and inter company
  • Deliver improvements to existing financial control processes and procedures as well as efficiencies in reporting
  • Year end reporting including preparation of year-end files
  • Establish effective working relationships with key stakeholders across Finance and wider divisions.
  • All staff have a risk responsibility which is additional in the case of line managers.

You will be a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA) with a number of years PQE within a Financial Services business. A self motivated and resilient approach will be key as well as a nurturing and personable manner when developing staff.

Previous track record of delivering change and improvements in financial controls is essential as well as a strong attention to detail, and in depth knowledge of "what good looks like" in financial control and strong systems and tech skills (Excel, Oracle, OneStreametc)
