Sewell Wallis are exclusively recruiting for a leading, US owned business based in south Leeds who are looking for a Head of Accounting to join their team.

You will be working for a forward thinking organisation, that has been rated as one of the top 20 big businesses to work for in the UK! You will be reporting into a highly experienced individual, who is an example of how far you can go with the right attitude and dedication. This role works for a particular division within the company, so although part of a large, global group, you will still be able to have a significant impact on all areas of the division alongside supporting with the overall consolidation piece.

As the Head of Accounting, you will be responsible for managing a small finance team and will have excellent exposure to the delivery of strategic change across the business. This role therefore requires a balance between a hands-on accountant, a strong leader and a true finance business partner.

Your duties will include the following:-

-Managing a team of 4 individuals, encouraging them by putting clear and effective development plans in place
-Overseeing the production of the monthly management accounts process for the division
-Managing quarterly review process for balance sheets
-Ownership of the consolidation of results and forecasts for management reporting
-Preparation of management information, working closely with the finance business partners and Head of FP&A to ensure financial information is prepared and delivered on time
-Ownership of the audit process for the relevant entities, liaising with the auditors in the UK and overseas
-Business partnering with non-finance departments across the company, influencing at senior levels where required

You will need to be a motivated, qualified accountant, who is used to working within a large and dynamic business. Leadership skills are essential and you must be able to communicate at all levels across a business effectively.
