You will be responsible for providing financial accounts that are accurate and have been prepared with strong financial controls. As the Financial Accountant you will play a key role in making sure consistent accounting practices and high standards are met across the property division.

The successful applicant will have a background in either internal or external audit / have worked in a SOX environment and have an accountancy qualification (ACCA, ACA or CIMA) coupled with experience of IFRS 16.

You will have experience of working with large volumes of data and have the ability to produce meaningful variance analysis to a broad audience. You will have a strong understanding of how to forecast and model data in Microsoft Excel.

Ideally, you will have experience from a similar dynamic and complex business and have the ability to juggle multiple conflicting priorities, working to tight deadlines. More importantly, you will have the ability to build successful relationships with partners across the business.
