Posted 3 months ago

Group Accountant required for a superb private equity-backed group based on the outskirts of Birmingham, West Midlands. This business has continued to trade successfully throughout the pandemic, and due to internal promotion is looking to replace its Group Accountant with a first time mover from a Top 10 UK accountancy practice.

As the Group Accountant, you will be responsible for:

  • Preparation of group and subsidiary financial statements for year end
  • Ownership of monthly balance sheet reconciliations
  • Monthly forecasting, with review and commentary for relevant departments
  • Maintenance of financial reporting to ensure clean audit reports
  • Monitoring of controls, identifying weaknesses and working with the finance team to ensure procedures are followed accurately
  • Direct line management of junior finance team
  • Building strong relationships with the wider finance team, as well as operations to convey financial information to non-financial team members
  • Acting as the lead point of contact for auditors during year end review
  • Taking ownership of technical reporting matters, acting as the central point of contact for queries internally
  • Multiple ad hoc projects as required by the Finance Director

The ideal candidate will be ACA or CA qualified looking to make their first time move from Big 4 or Top 10 UK accountancy firms. Those qualified in industry with highly relevant experience are also welcome, especially if you are ACCA qualified with private equity companies on your CV.

The role is hybrid working, partly office-based and partly home-based, with little-to-no travel outside of Birmingham. As this is replacing a newly-promoted team member, there is evident progression available, so we’re looking for an ambitious future leader of the business.
