My client is a high growth, successful retailer with over 300 stores worldwide. Despite the challenges which much of the retail market is facing currently, the business is doing exceptionally well and has opened up 20 stores this year already and another 20 in the pipeline. The Head Office, located in Central London, has a young, vibrant and fast-paced environment. The team are looking for a similarly orientated person to join them as a Group Accountant. Considering how well known this brand is, the finance team is relatively small which means you will have a lot of responsibility and enjoy a wider remit of responsibilities.

The role of Group Accountant will involve:

  • Ensure the accurate reporting and accounting across the business
  • Consolidate the monthly management accounts including balance sheet and cash flow
  • Prepare the consolidated financial statements
  • Work closely with international subsidiaries
  • Preparation of VAT returns in UK and abroad

The suitable candidate for the role of Group Accountant will be/have:

  • ACA qualified
  • Experience with multi currency consolidations
  • Ability to work in a fast paced and dynamic environment
  • Advanced Excel (Look-ups, pivot tables)
