(This role will initially be hired working from home, with a view to returning to the offices in Spring 2021 potentially).

Reporting directly into the Financial Controller, and being their second in command, you will play a pivotal role in the finance team and you will take on a broad and varied role that will suit a part-qualified ACCA/CIMA studier who has gained strong accounting experience in their career to date.

  • Ad-hoc project work

Experience Required as the successful Management Accountant:
