Job Description

We’re working alongside a highly acquisitive, PE backed Financial Services business on their search for a Group Accountant to bolster their team. The business has gone from strength to strength and is looking to accelerate its impressive growth over the coming 18 months. This role will work very closely with senior leadership and is a great opportunity in terms of exposure as well from an experience building perspective.

The current Group Finance team is set up to be rather lean and as a result, the Group Accountant will get involved with a full range of tasks alongside the FC & CFO.


Some key tasks include:

  • Ownership of consolidated financial reporting for divisions – including month end actuals as well as forecasts/budgets.
  • Support the Group Half Year and Full Year external reporting process
  • Support with financial reporting for other Group entities
  • Preparation of the Group VAT return
  • Support Financial Controller with audit
  • Ensure a strong financial control environment
  • Support the delivery of new IT initiatives to improve current systems and processes
  • Support on M&A and Integration projects
  • Ad-hoc project work


Required experience/background:

  • Qualified Accountant (ACA/CA/ACCA) ideally from FS Audit within Big 4/Top 6 firm
  • 0-2 years PQE
  • Willingness to get involved in a range of different tasks


This is a rare opportunity for a recently qualified Accountant to become a key team member in this fast growth, PE backed business. This role will have a clear progression path and will have the potential to progress very quickly.
