Group Financial Accountant
Our client is an international media Group with global content distribution presence, and an average monthly digital audience of over 2 billion people.
There has been a re-organisation in the business recently, including the introduction of a new, high quality senior management team. As such, finance is also being transformed and we are seeking to recruit a newly created role to support the Group Financial Controller. The business is on an exciting journey, and it is an opportune time to get on board and help shape the Group as it continues to grow.
The Group Financial Accountant will be invaluable in challenging the business, creating processes and re-shaping the way ‘things have always been done’. This is a high profile role with exposure to senior stakeholders from day one as well being seen as a key link for finance to the rest of the business. We are looking for a technical finance expert and an agent of change who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty and drive ‘best in class’ processes, especially as the business evolves. This is a great opportunity for an ambitious finance professional to join a dynamic media business with the potential to be Group Financial Controller in 3 -5 years.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with a high quality academic background. You will have trained with a top professional services firm and have c. 3 years’ post-qualified experience in industry. Media sector experience is desirable, but a strong understanding of multi-currency group consolidations in a listed business is essential. You will have a firm grasp of business processes, systems and controls. You must have excellent communication skills, and fit in an energetic, fun, creative environment.
