Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Financial Accountant - Falmouth / Hybrid - £50-55,000 Neg DOE + Bonus + Exceptional benefits 

We’ve agreed with our client to title this opportunity Financial Accountant but, to be honest, neither of us are convinced that really does it justice. The role will definitely call for a candidate with strong technical accounting and statutory reporting skills, but it’s actually much broader than that. To add to the confusion further, the existing Financial Controller is rather hoping that the successful candidate will have their eyes on his job in the future… 

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been exclusively engaged by a longstanding client and genuinely exciting business that seeks to recruit a Financial Accountant, or whatever you want to call it. The pace of the growth of this business has been nothing short of phenomenal and they’re rapidly earning a name for themselves us one of Cornwall’s fastest growing tech-based employers. This expansion is set for many years to come and the finance team are growing with it. This is a brand new role that will work closely with the Financial Controller with a view to hopefully taking over that role in the not-to-distant future. The role is offered on a full time, permanent basis and this employer promotes a hybrid working arrangement with up to two days per week operated remotely. 

This will be a pivotal role that works as part of a small (but quickly growing), and experienced team. Supported by a super-friendly FC the role will feature a broad range of responsibilities with a key focus on preparing financial reports, multiple account reconciliations (5 legal entities), AP/AR management and annual audit preparation. Other key responsibilities to include: 

- Preparation of cost projections

- Project accounting and budgeting

- Assist with statutory accounting and reporting

- Supporting the FC and CFO with month end procedures, ensuring accurate account reconciliations and insightful management reports

- Play a key role in preparing financial forecasts and business plans

- Production of monthly and ad-hoc financial statements

- Assist with preparing financial reports for group companies

- VAT reporting

- Costing and pricing analysis

- Cash flow forecasting

- Streamline processes and implement new initiatives

Think you’ve got what it takes? We’re looking for a dynamic, energetic, and down-to-earth Financial Accountant. A professionally qualified individual (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), the successful candidate could potentially join the business directly from accountancy practice, or from another commercial business (ideally services, manufacturing or engineering based). You’ll require good in exposure to the preparation of financial and management reports, up to date knowledge of accounting standards and budgetary controls, and most certainly a natural leadership style. It’s a big job, but a rewarding one, and well suited to a driven individual who cares about their colleagues as much as their clients. 

The rewards here are big. Not only is there potential for the role to rapidly develop to FC, the company also offers fantastic benefits: a generous salary, a very lucrative bonus scheme (up to 20%!), enhanced pension, life insurance, EV scheme to name a few. 

Interested? Great, I’d love to tell you more. For a confidential, informal chat, or to move straight to application, please contact Elle Benjamin in confidence, quoting reference EB9667.
