Job Description

A well-established business in the construction industry is looking for an accomplished Financial Controller or qualified Senior Accountant to join its growing team on an initial 12 month contract.

In this role you will be working alongside the Finance Director, acting as his number two, supervising a team of 3 accounting professionals. You will be responsible for the day to day oversight of this accounting function whilst performing both hands-on and strategic duties. Typically your day will include the following: month end accounting procedures, half and full year statutory reporting, overseeing all taxation matters, forecasting and advising on budgets. In addition to the above criteria, you will also be expected to review the current processes followed by junior staff members and implement new and more efficient ones where necessary.

In order to be suitable for this role of significant responsibility, it is ESSENTIAL that you are a fully qualified accountant. Whilst ACCA accreditations would be ideal, we are also considering those that are CIMA or AAT qualified. Further to this, strong Excel abilities are considered a prerequisite. Any experience working for large auditing companies or construction firms would be highly advantageous to your application, but not essential.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a large organisation that take care of their staff and offer a range of attractive benefits, including: 25 days holiday, 7% employer pension contribution and a share option scheme.
