Sellick Partnership has been engaged to recruit a permanent Financial Accountant for a fast growing and reputable service business based in Manchester city centre. The business has rapidly grown through organic growth and acquisition and boasts a range of services in a number of countries. This role is available at an exciting time and the successful candidate will play a major part in the company's current growth project.

The post holder will be joining a dynamic and entrepreneurial team and can expect daily interaction with senior stakeholders. Accordingly, the role offers the opportunity for rapid progression, and strong performance will be quickly recognised and well rewarded. This role is suited to a first time mover from an audit background, or with similar experience in working in the Financial Services industry.

You will play a vital role in leading the monthly financial reporting of multiple divisions for the consolidated position of the Group. The role will be a key member of the Group Financial Control team and encompasses the following areas:

  • Leading monthly and quarterly consolidation reporting
  • Liaising with European finance teams to ensure timeliness and accuracy of submissions
  • Maintaining and strengthening control and reconciliation of the Group Balance sheet and P&L
  • Working closely with Portfolio Finance team, support IFRS adjustments within structures, and providing financial accounting expertise to the wider Finance function
  • Preparing and reviewing statutory disclosures in relation to the consolidated vehicles
  • Facilitating statutory audit for the Parent entities
  • Leading process improvements to streamline monthly close and reporting process
  • Supporting onboarding of new deals and reporting system implementation.

It is expected that the successful candidate will be dynamic and able to thrive in a fast-paced organisation, where initiative and ability to identify areas of improvement are promoted.

The successful applicant will be a proactive, fully qualified Accountant (ACA, ACCA or ICAS) either making their first move from practice with a broad knowledge of IFRS accounting standards and statutory accounts or coming from a similar role.

Due to the nature of this position it is necessary that the successful individual is able to communicate with staff at all levels, whilst maintaining their own work load. Focussed on delivering specific objectives, you will be proactive, adaptable, dynamic and self-motivated with a desire to find and deliver improvements.

If you consider yourself to be a committed, career driven professional who can demonstrate the above experience and who would welcome the stimulus of this commercial finance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.
