Financial Accounting Manager - Falmouth / Hybrid - Circa: £65,000 Negotiable DOE

If you’re a motivated technical accountant who feels disillusioned by the limited number of employers in Cornwall that can offer genuine gold-standard career advancement, we’re going to make you smile. 

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to partner with a long standing client, a services business commonly regarded as the county’s most sought after employer. A large, modern, nationally trading business that put their employees at the forefront of everything they do. A business with unrivalled employee retention and an average staff tenure that leaves other employers wondering exactly how they do it. A business that is helmed by one of the most talented management teams in the region, both in and out of finance, achieving year-on-year growth in sales. 

Working closely with and often deputising for a highly experienced Finance Director, the Financial Accounting Manager will perform a broad ranging second-in-command role, supported by a large and established accounting team. 

Financial Accounting Manager: This is an interesting and highly technical role with a strong focus on tax compliance, statutory accounting, reporting, GDPR, management of AP and AR controls, and the delivery of high quality financial insight.

For this role we seek an experienced candidate, ideally with comprehensive knowledge of statutory accounting principles and practices, UK finance reporting standards, and complex financial analysis. Applicants should hold a professional qualification (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), and will have ideally been trained in practice or have recent experienced gained in a technical accounting role. The successful candidate should possess excellent MS Excel skills and a strong aptitude for grasping modern accounting ERPs. Whilst strong technical accounting skills are obviously a given, our client has made strong emphasis on the importance of personable and team-working qualities. The role works within a highly efficient, friendly and motivated team in a business where finance is respected and regularly consulted by colleagues in all areas of the business. 

What’s in it for the successful candidate?

- Hybrid working with up to 3 days per week home based if required

- A highly regarded brand
