Director of Partnership Accounting and Treasury
Clifford Chance is one of the world's leading law firms - our vision is to be the global law firm of choice for the world's leading businesses of today and tomorrow. A high performing Finance function is key to our ongoing commercial success. We have, therefore, created a new senior role within our Partnership Services team, which will drive the development of a world-class accounting and treasury centre of excellence.
Amongst other responsibilities, you will help drive process improvement for the accounting team globally, continue enhancements and standardisation of the Firm's accounting systems and proactively manage the annual Group Consolidation planning and process. You will lead the Equity Partner remuneration process, ensuring that the owners of the Firm are paid in line with fair and accurate profit allocations. You will also be responsible for the development of coherent global treasury policy, as well as managing the Firm's cash-flows to eliminate any risk from adverse currency fluctuations. You will build and maintain close working relationships with the Firm's banks including the renegotiation of the existing RCF, as well as maintaining the £200m Partner Capital Loan facility. You will take pride in developing an accounting team that will be seen as a trusted business partner both within the central Partnership Services team, as well as by the global Finance team and you will work with the Financial Governance function and the various Finance communities to deliver a robust control environment.
If you have the drive to design and implement a global treasury solution and to develop a collaborative, world-class Group accounting function then we are interested in hearing from you. You will be suitably qualified (ACA, ACCA or equivalent), have senior level accounting and treasury experience and you will have financial reporting experience at a group or regional level. You must be able to demonstrate a strong track record of senior management within a finance function in a professional or financial services organisation and it is key that you are a strong influencer, in order to make the impact required to build a world-class function.
