Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Financial Accountant - Cullompton - Up to: £45,000 

It can be difficult to settle on a job title that does a role justice… and this is one of those occasions. It’s not a Management Accountant, not a Finance Manager, but not strictly a Financial Accountant either. It’s all of those and more, making it an opportunity with superb variety and exceptional future prospects.   

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been exclusively selected to assist a new client, a very fast growth and genuinely unique retail focussed business that is really making waves across Europe and soon, the Americas. The business has tasked us with sourcing an experienced accountant to join their team in a newly created role that is highly likely to develop. 

Working closely alongside an experienced and very friendly Financial Controller and supported by a small but growing transactional finance team, this will be a role with a focus on financial reporting, but spanning all areas of the end-to-end finance function. Key responsibilities to include: 

- Assist in the preparation of detailed monthly management reports/accounts with accompanying commentary

- Produce high quality and timely financial reporting packs in line with FCA requirements 

- Production of accurate VAT reports for both UK and EU entities 

 - Act as a key point of contact for annual internal and external audits 

- Deputise for the Financial Controller where required, assuming line management for a small team 

- Develop, implement and maintain digital accounting processes to increase efficiency and future-proof for continued growth 

- Bank reconciliations 

- Produce cash flow statements and general forecasts 

- Oversee aged debtor controls and procedures  

- Maintenance of the fixed asset register 

- Balance sheet reconciliation 

- Assisting with ongoing accounting projects 

For this role we are seeking to attract candidates with a strong understanding of end-to-end accounting processes gained within a fast developing business. Candidate’s should be either part/fully professionally qualified (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), or consider themselves to be qualified through vocational experience (QBE). Proven experience of developing and implementing new accounting processes and systems is essential and the successful candidate should possess strong general IT aptitude (and be highly competent in the use of MS Excel). A knowledge of multi-currency transaction, and EU VAT would also be desirable, though not essential. As the role is highly likely to require the successful candidate to recruit and develop a small transactional finance team, supervisory experience would be desirable, or an aptitude to manage a small team. The role works within a highly energetic team that will recognise the value of an additional accountant in the building, so strong communication skills and commercial awareness will be a must! 

In addition to a generous base salary, the role offers a range of great benefits and the opportunity to join a highly successful business poised for continued expansion. For further details and to apply, please apply in confidence to Jay Vilarrubi-Smith quoting reference JVS9974 ASAP.
