An opportunity has arisen for a Financial Reporting Manager to join the head office team of one of the UK’s best recognised high street retailers. This role is newly created following a sustained period of domestic and international growth and will offer the post holder significant exposure to commercial decision making.
Reporting into a dynamic Head of Group Reporting, this is a really broad role encompassing monthly management reporting, cost accounting, budgeting and forecasting and driving improvements across finance. Involvement in statutory accounting/technical projects will be limited and restricted to particularly busy times of the year. This is a great role for someone coming straight from practice, seeking a move into a more commercial rather than technical role. This role involves direct management of cost accountants and the successful candidate will work closely with the Group Financial Controller and CFO and have contact with finance teams across all of the organisation’s markets, plus key internal and external customers.
Candidates will likely have trained with a Big 4 practice and be ACA qualified. Experience of or an interest in the retail sector will be looked upon favourably but is not a pre-requisite. This is a unique role and a fantastic opportunity to join a growing business at a key juncture
