Recruiter
Our client is a global consultancy firm (big 4) based in the City of London and are recruiting for a Financial Reporting Manager position within banking and capital markets, paying up to £65k plus bonuses and benefits.

 

This is more of an advisory role, providing audit teams with support and advice on technical accounting and other financial reporting requirements.

This is an exciting opportunity, where you will be the key contact for technical accounting matters, working closely with senior stakeholders.

The opportunity

The role includes contributing and managing the provision of technical accounting support to the financial services sector, including delivery of meaningful insights into accounting and reporting matters relevant to that sector. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to grow their technical accounting skills and knowledge, working within a highly collaborative team of fellow technical accounting professionals.

Your key responsibilities

Applying deep technical accounting and disclosure experience, plus sector knowledge, you will initially assist with the performance of pre-issuance reviews of the financial statements of our listed and public interest audit clients, which include some of the largest companies in the sector. In time, you will take responsibility for the reviews. The objective of the reviews is to ensure any significant and unusual accounting or financial reporting matters have been accounted for and disclosed appropriately in the financial statements.

You will be one of the key contacts for the provision of advice and support on accounting technical matters under IFRS & UK GAAP to financial sector teams, working closely with other staff and supporting more senior team members.

You will be involved in the development of thought leadership, such as our International GAAP publication. You will also participate in the firm’s EMEIA and Global technical accounting subject matter groups.

You will assist with the development and delivery of high quality technical training for our people in the BCM audit practice, as well as coaching and developing teams in technical accounting matters on a day to day basis.

Skills and attributes for success

  • Expertise in UK GAAP and IFRS
  • Execute work efficiently, delivering excellent service providing support to the assurance process with appropriate consideration of risk
  • Ability to identity the key areas of financial reporting risk within a clients' business and apply focus and problem-solving skills to appropriate areas.
  • Utilise existing knowledge and experience, but continuously striving to widen expertise in financial reporting and related matters.
  • Confidence to challenge audit team or client conclusions where appropriate, and ability to assist in bringing resolution to areas of disagreement.
  • Be recognised as a respected advisor to audit teams, with own views actively sort out on a variety of matters.
  • Be pro-active in identifying and driving forward initiatives which make a difference either internally and/or to our clients
  • Adhere to and enforce the firm's risk management policies and quality agenda
  • Demonstrate strong teamwork, collaboration and recognise when to consult.


To qualify for the role you must have

  • Excellent knowledge of UK GAAP, IFRS, UK regulations and UK company law gained within the Financial Services sector
  • ACA/CA/ACCA (ICAEW, ICAS, ICAI or equivalent international qualification)
  • Experience in advising on accounting for complex transactions applying proven industry knowledge
  • Ability to articulate a technical argument, involving good judgement when identifying the key drivers
  • Ability to network effectively and build relationships with clients (internal and external)
