  • Review and prepare essential commentaries for inclusion in the monthly Board and Chief Executive packs;  
  • Provide technical support to local finance teams across the business, on interpretation of international and local accounting standards and other reporting matters;  
  • Research and apply, where required, the impact of forthcoming accounting standards on the Group and business units;  
  • Undertake ad hoc project work, supporting senior managers with significant business events that will have an impact on finance and the Group such as M&A activity.

The ideal candidate will have strong academics, be ‘Big 5’ trained, ACA qualified (0-3 years PQE) and looking to make a move into a listed, global FTSE 250 business.
