Senior Accountant

Salary: £40,000 - £50,000 plus great benefits

Location: Manchester

Duration: Permanent

Sellick Partnership has been engaged to recruit a Senior Accountant for a truly global service organisation in Manchester. The business has grown year on year through acquisition and organic growth and boasts a very healthy turnover and profits.

Reporting to the Financial Controller with a dotted line into the Head of Finance, this is a key position that will be tasked with the responsibility for delivering a correct and timely monthly accounting close, supported by a set of bank and control account reconciliations. You will also coach, support and cross-train colleagues to deliver the daily reconciliations & month end close, as well as taking on more complex accounts and investigations.

A key part of the role will also be to challenge current processes and embed a culture of continuous process improvement.

The successful applicant will be a fully qualified Accountant (ACA or ACCA or CIMA) either making their first move from practice (Top 10) or coming from a similar role with experience of general ledger accounting, complex systems and working with large volumes of data.

Due to the multi-faceted nature of this position it is necessary that the successful individual will have good attention to detail, have a flexible approach to work and problem solving and excellent excel and modelling skills.

In a workplace where teamwork is essential, excellent people skills and the ability to influence are a must. Likewise, being self-motivated, adaptable, pro-active (constantly curious) and the willingness to assist in solving problems or questioning wherever possible without passing the problem along is the type of individual we are looking for. You will also possess good influencing skills at senior level, managing deadlines, timetables, multi-tasking and priorities.

If you consider yourself to be a committed, motivated individual, who can demonstrate the above skills then we would be pleased to hear from you.

If you would like to apply for this role or would like to find out more, please apply online or contact Jonathan Moss at Sellick Partnership on 0161 834 1642.
