I am working with FTSE 100 Retailer who is looking for a Lead Accountant. This is a really exciting time to join the business as they're going through a lot of change and have a fantastic growth plan ahead!

The Lead Accountant will be responsible for the group P&L and be required to participate in the forecasting process on a monthly, quarterly and yearly basis including any re-forecasting necessary. Also focusing on the budgeting and reporting aspect, analysing various international accounts and presenting them to senior management including CFO and board directors.


The Lead Accountant must be accountancy qualified, have strong critical thinking and analytical skills. The ability to build rapport with colleagues is critical because the role will involve developing relationships with both finance and non finance personnel. An excellent salary and benefits package is being offered.
