My client is a high growth FMCG business based in South West London looking for a Financial Controller to join them. This is a brand new vacancy given the volume of work over the past year. You will be responsible for managing a Financial Accountant and a Finance Administrator. The culture is very dynamic and the right candidate will need to be proactive and able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with 1-2 years' post qualified experience either moving straight from a small-medium sized accountancy practice or someone who is already in industry.

The role of Financial Controller will involve:

  • Preparing the Group and UK monthly and statutory accounts
  • Balance sheet reconciliations
  • Work closely with Treasury on forex hedging
  • Plan and manage the annual audit
  • Responsible for Corporate Tax and VAT
  • Ad-hoc project work
  • Managing and developing direct reports

The suitable candidate for the role of Financial Controller will be/have:

  • Qualified accountant (ideally ACA) with 1-2 years' post qualified experience
  • Strong technical skills
  • Ability to influence and persuade
  • Flexible and adaptable to change
