With an excellent leadership team now in place, they are focusing on the strategic direction of the business and are set to have an exciting next 12 months where they focus on product development and enhancing their teams across the business.

This new, high profile role of Senior Financial Reporting Specialist, will be a pivotal role within the company, managing the delivery of high-quality financial reporting, including statutory, quarterly and regulatory reporting. You will constantly be engaged across the business, so a strong communicator who can confidently explain technical finance queries to non-finance departments is extremely important.

The role would suit someone at Manager level within a recognised accountancy practice, or someone who has already progressed into industry and working for a professional services firm.

Your day to day role will include the following duties:-

-Partnering closely across all areas of the business, providing guidance to ensure the financial reporting team are engaged in all areas where accounting advice may be required
-Preparation of judgement papers to support the Group's most judgmental financial reporting balances
-Act as the 1st point of contact with external auditors to ensure a smooth audit process at each reporting cycle
-Prepare financial statements and quarterly reports, engaging with the relevant stakeholders to deliver this
-Ensure all deliverables adhere to the financial control framework
-Identify and solve financial reporting issues and risks that arise, preparing technical or judgement papers where necessary

We require a technically strong, qualified accountant for this position with a strong working knowledge of IFRS. Experience working for a fast paced professional/financial services company is also highly desirable.

This is a stand-alone role with no direct reports initially, however given the progression on offer with our client, other opportunities to manage are likely to develop over time.
