- Post-acquisition integration work where you will be involved in some key commercial decisions
- Support with the audit process including planning and coordination

- Analyse and advice on implications of changes in accounting rules

To be considered you will ideally have the following profile:-

- ACA qualified with experience working in a recognised accountancy practice
- Experience of consolidations
- Experience of preparing statutory accounts and the statutory audit process

This position comes with some fantastic benefits such as a 10& bonus, private healthcare, flexible working and benefits alongside a competitive salary.
