Interim Financial Accountant
Date posted: 18/08/2021
Duration: 6 months
Salary: £38,000 - £42,000 per annum*
We have been asked to help identify an exceptional Financial Accountant to join a world renown and historic London University on a fixed term contract for the next 6 months. The assignment represents an excellent opportunity to broaden your existing finance skills within a high calibre, motivated team working within a globally-recognised centre for academic excellence.
Working to the Head of Financial Accounting and taking responsibility for a few key areas including fixed assets and bank reconciliations, you’ll be asked to take on a variety of tasks, including supporting year end; carrying out monthly reconciliations to facilitate reporting accuracy; collate key relevant information particularly on University assets; and support any projects or additional work around the areas you support.
There may well be opportunities to help improve their approach and processes to managing assets and your input will be valued. While some of the technical aspects of the job are likely to remain a fundamental part of the role, you can expect to be part of a team always looking to enhance their offering and improve the level of services provided to the University.
As the preferred candidate, you are likely to be on the road to a professional qualification if you haven’t completed on already, and will be able to bring at least three years’ clear recent experience in financial management gained within a similar academic environment or within a blue-chip company or large non-for-profit organisation. You will combine a good eye for technical details with the ability to communicate effectively with peers and internal customers, as well as gel with the existing team. You can expect a number of benefits including generous pro-rata leave in addition.
If you match this description; if you are available at reasonably short notice, and if you are ready to be challenged in a positive professional environment, then please send a resume and covering note today.
