Bringing your knowledge of best practice financial controls, you will help us develop these functions, and we will ask you to develop our internal policies, so you will be an important part of our migration to Oracle.

The role will be crucial to our year-end, as you will manage and respond to audit queries and prepare regulatory returns including aspects of our financial statements.

  • Confident in your understanding of accounting practices and best practice financial controls.
  • You have experience of preparing external financial reports (like audit submissions) and you reconciling them back to source data.
  • A problem solver who is willing to investigate and remedy balances that don’t balance.
