ACA / ACCA Qualified Financial Accountant, Northampton, £50,000 – £54,000
An exciting, unique opportunity has arisen for an experienced Group Financial Accountant to join the finance team within this international brand based in the Northampton area. The Group Financial Accountant will be pivotal within the finance team, forecasting growth over the coming years and forming a part of a highly experienced department. This brand has a rich history with fantastic values and is currently going through a period of rapid growth, from an already impressive base level.
As Group Financial Accountant, you will work closely with your direct line manager to ensure that month end group reporting and year end statutory processes are achieved within suitable timeframes. You will take ownership of month end consolidations – both reporting and adjustments, as well as oversight of the intercompany reconciliations.
Additional responsibilities for the Group Financial Accountant will include:
Your previous experience must include working with group consolidations, ideally including oversea subsidiaries – any experience with multi-currency and/or multi-site operations would be highly advantageous – as this is such a critical part of your remit. Having an understanding of IFRS policies will also be highly beneficial coming into this position.
The ideal individual must be an ACCA/CIMA/ACA qualified accountant, who is a confident communicator with strong interpersonal skills. You will be able to work closely with multiple departments both in-house and overseas to obtain required information, allowing you to deliver to required timeframes and update the finance manual as and when required. You will ideally be an advanced excel user, being comfortable in all applications within Microsoft office and where possible, an understanding of Microsoft Dynamics.
