Group Technical Accountant (Big 4 or Insurance experience highly desirable)
London, Colchester or York based (2-3 days in the office)
The Group Technical Accountant is responsible for the development and maintenance of Group-wide accounting policy and ensuring that Group financial reporting complies with this policy.
If you have locked down the basics and are looking for your next challenge, and if you are a finance professional with can-do attitude, highly motivated, pragmatic and commercially focused, this role might be for you.
However, if you don't have any Technical Accounting experience, or you are looking for a job where you know the routine and you won't have to think too much, you may struggle in this role.
Why we are hiring
The Group is growing fast, expanding into new areas. At the same time, demands on the financial reporting function from external stakeholders and from the business are increasing. The Group recognises the importance of technical accountant to achieving its overall ambitions and are backing this new position.

Diversity and Working Patterns
At Hiscox we care about our people. We hire the best people for the job and we're committed to diversity and creating a truly inclusive culture, which we believe drives success. We have also learned over the past 15 months that working life doesn't always have to be in the office, and when it's safe to do so, we will be introducing a hybrid way of working to encourage a healthy work life balance.
We anticipate the successful candidate for this role will be in the office up to 3 days a week. We see it as the best of both worlds: structure and sociability on one hand, and independence and flexibility on the other.
