The Business

This international business has a huge thirst for excellence both internally and externally.

Internally, it ensures it walks the walk by investing substantially in its infrastructure, people, training systems and technology.

The Role

The position of Financial Accountant is a pivotal role in the structure as the linchpin between financial accounting, finance operations and process/continuous improvement initiatives/projects.

The key role components will include:

  • Reporting to the Head of Finance with a dotted line to the Finance Director
  • Involvement in several high value & profile process/continuous improvement iniatvies & projects
  • Leading the statutory accounts, returns & compliance process
  • Working closely with operational finance and transactional finance to produce effective monthly reporting packs that can be used to add value and influence decision making
  • Liaising and working closely with the VAT & Taxation teams
  • Leading and mentoring part-qualified Accountants
  • Reviewing and developing processes, procedures, controls & systems

The role of Financial Accountant is based in Edinburgh but with hybrid and flexible working. The position will offer:

  • £60,000 - £70,000 base salary
  • Discretionary bonus
  • Competitive pension scheme
  • Excellent benefits package
  • Flexible and hybrid working

Candidate Profile

We are seeking a qualified Accountant that has strong financial accounting experience and a desire to constant evolve and develop the finance function so it provides the utmost value to the business. This isn't a role that would suit a Technical Accountant with their comfort zone being behind a computer screen as stakeholder interaction, engagement and mentoring aspiring part-qualified Accountants is essential.
