Associated British Foods is a FTSE 100 international food, ingredients and retail group with 130,000 employees across 50 countries and sales of £13 billion.  Its success has been achieved through a combination of growth in existing businesses, acquisition of complementary new businesses and delivery of high levels of operating efficiency.

Reporting to the Group Finance Systems Manager, your responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting in the ongoing design, development and maintenance of the group consolidation system and processes
  • Working with key stakeholders across the group providing them with business critical information and developing new reports to reflect any changes in corporate structure
  • Facilitating the successful integration of new acquisitions and training and supporting subsidiaries in the use of the group consolidation system
  • Ownership of some key financial reports including quarterly forecasts and budgets, with responsibility for the ongoing integrity of the consolidation database

The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with a minimum of two years post qualified experience, will have sound practical experience of multi-currency consolidations, a current knowledge of International Financial Reporting Standards and be keen to develop their IT skills.  Previous knowledge of consolidation systems, database management, spreadsheet macros, VBA etc. would be advantageous, but not essential, as training and support will be provided to develop these skills.  You will however have an enthusiasm to learn and a strong desire to develop your career in financial management.  You will be highly analytical, pay keen attention to detail and accuracy, and have a demonstrable record of employing strong interpersonal skills to understand situations and be able to flex your style accordingly.

You will have excellent problem solving and communication skills, the confidence to interact at all levels of the business and have both the ability and determination to build a career within a top tier organisation.
