  • Management of all intergroup/inter-company balances including reconciliation and investigation of amounts.
  • Management of annual group budget process, including consolidation and analysis across the group and development/improvement of budgetary procedure.
  • Management of the group’s insurance requirements, including liaising with group entities and insurance brokers for renewal, quarterly updates throughout the year, and overall responsibility of ensuring adequate coverage.
  • Maintenance of group bank account listings and information.
  • Year-end audit assistance and production of required statutory reporting.
  • Updating and aligning finance policies across the group

Now let’s focus on you…

You will have… 

  • A good technical accounting background
  • Working knowledge of UK GAAP
  • An ability to prioritise effectively, efficiently and deliver to tight deadlines
  • A strong understanding of IT systems and high level of proficiency with Microsoft Excel
  • Great communication skills enabling you to effectively work across multiple finance teams and business areas

Ideally, you will also be able to feature the following within your CV:

  • Experience of group consolidation of financial matters
