Reporting into the Head of Global Accounting, this is a newly created position working within a global Group Finance function and as Senior Group Accountant the role is project focused rather than traditional month end consolidations and will involve:


  • Dealing with accounting policies
  • Project based work: revamping group finance manual, new systems (replacing Hyperion), how to improve efficiencies, how to improve the month end process (facilitating and advising on this), going through a change of PE ownership (deal has been completed but the processes for the new PE owners, UK firm, are changing); advising on M&A activity
  • Liaising with the Controls team (international team)

  • IFRS work


In the role will you get exposure to numerous senior stakeholders worldwide and the company are known for promoting internally, meaning there are a number of progression routes available to you in the future.

The ideal candidate will be fully qualified (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) and have excellent knowledge of IFRS, consolidation and statutory accounting. You will ideally come from a large corporate environment and previous experience from a PE Backed company would be beneficial, not essential.
