About Our Client

Our client is a division of an extremely large business and has one of the most complex structures of any business in the area. The business has gone through a period of explosive growth and the finance function in particular has a number of new faces filled with enthusiasm and bringing new ideas to the table, creating a changing and evolving environment. Having come through a huge transition in 2015, the business is well placed to march on from a strong base and the Finance Systems Accountant will play a leading role in facilitating this.

Job Description

The Finance Systems accountant role is less about coding and tweaking ERP systems and more about exploration, inquisition and business partnering. The role is primarily geared around improving the integrity of results and margins reported through from source to ledger and critically to increase the understanding across the business of how individuals can play a part in this.



The Finance Systems Accountant will need to delve into the numbers, working with operational and support staff to uncover the issues behind the errors. You will need to develop preventative controls and roll these out as standard practice across the board, building on the work that has already been carried out.

The Successful Applicant

The Finance Systems Accountant will be a fully qualified accountant, likely with ICAEW or CIMA. Your background will be either within a Top 5 accountancy practice or within a large company. You will be a problem solver by nature, able to manage and interpret large volumes of data. It is essential that you are a tenacious character and resilient in the face of setbacks. Prior experience in a retail or similar multi-site environment would be advantageous.
