(HC85) Financial and Projects Accountant

Leicestershire | £44,000.00 - 49,000.00 Per Annum

Are you a fully qualified accountant who wants to do more than routine accountancy? Our client is a large, complex organisation with multiple operating divisions, and could use your skills.

Operating in the social housing sector, they have an extensive portfolio of properties from the Midlands to the South East. As such, they have large volumes of data to manage and must adhere to various regulations governing social housing. They have developed complex and effective systems to run their organisation and have a ‘continuous improvement’ ethos to make them better.

They would like to appoint a new Financial and Projects Accountant, based out of their Leicester site. In this role, you will support the Financial Controller in the preparation of statutory accounts, regulatory accounting, year-end routines, VAT returns and other taxation affairs. You’ll also work with external auditors to complete compliance audits.

The findings from these year-end audits will then form the basis of the other part of your role which will be spent on improvement projects. These will be business transformation projects of varying sizes and complexity. They could be small projects within the finance team, or you may be representing the finance team in organisation-wide projects. But they will all offer you challenges and the opportunity to test and develop your skills.

You will need to be a qualified accountant and your background must include experience gained from a large, complex organisation (£200m+) from any sector.

Overall, this role offers the opportunity to play a significant role within an established and forward-thinking business, so please contact Heather Clarke at Harris Burns for a detailed information pack on 01952 743243  or email info@harrisburns.com
