A large, successful, multinational PLC based in Birmingham, West Midlands, is seeking its next rising star, initially employed as their Group Financial Accountant. We are seeking an ambitious Big 4 or Top 10 trained Qualified Accountant (ACA, CA, ACCA) who is ready to take the next step in their career, and join a global business renowned for their quality and expertise in their market sector.

As Group Financial Accountant, your key responsibilities will include assistance and preparation of:

  • Monthly Group management accounts and Board report.
  • Group Consolidation Accounting.
  • Review and follow-up of issues identified during monthly management accounts reviews, including identification and resolution of potential issues or exposures.
  • Delivery of Annual and Interim financial reporting, including provision of financial information to the external auditors.
  • UK subsidiary statutory accounts under FRS 101.
  • Group tax and treasury management, including involvement and liaison with, and provision of information to, external tax advisers and banks.
  • Periodic review and challenge of accounting records and performing internal control reviews of subsidiary businesses.
  • Financial reporting and due diligence in relation to subsidiary acquisitions & disposals, including post-acquisition integration.

The successful Group Financial Accountant will be a Big 4 or Top 10 trained Qualified Chartered Accountant (ACA, CA, ACCA), with 1-2 years post qualification experience, preferably including exposure to group accounting/consolidations with international operations. You will be up-to-date with technical accounting standards (FRS 101 and IFRS), competent with MS Excel and able to balance financial reporting and commercial considerations sensibly.

In person we seek a self-starter, with a desire to learn and progress; someone self-confident with strong interpersonal skills, able to communicate at all levels within the organisation as well as with external parties.

The Group Financial Accountant role will involve some fully-expensed travel, both in the UK and internationally, therefore we require someone able to have some flexibility to accommodate for this.
