MDM Resourcing are exclusively recruiting a Group Financial Accountant for a £350m turnover / £40m EBIT business based in South Manchester.
One of the UK’s largest and highest quality operators in its sector, this is a business with a very well balanced working culture which is seeking a candidate making a first move from practice into industry.
The role is a particularly good role for a first move as the responsibilities are broader than we usually see for a Financial Accountant role, meaning that you will build a broader range of finance skills in this role, which will support your progression into more senior roles more quickly in the future.
Reporting to the Group Financial Controller, the role supports the Finance function through a broad set of responsibilities encompassing a mix of consolidated financial reporting (monthly and statutory), budgeting and forecasting, cashflow forecasting, financial analysis, and operation of balance sheet controls. Each of the responsibilities indicated above is a key “building block” of the skills required to progress to more senior roles in due course. Most Financial Accountant roles do not offer exposure to budgeting, forecasting and cashflow forecasting.
The role requires a candidate making a first move from practice into industry with the following attributes:-
- ACA / ACCA qualified accountant; technically competent and self motivated;
- An effective communicator who is able to forge relationships across the business;
- Willing to delve into the detail and understand systems and processes;
- Strong Excel skills are essential including use of SUMIF, VLOOKUP and pivot tables.
If you would like to develop your career in industry in a business with a supportive and well balanced work/life balance culture, please send your CV and request the job specification.
