Established around 25 years ago, both the division and group have grown quickly (both organically and by acquisition) to form a market leading business with a truly global presence. The company is well backed and plans to continue their expansion; this is therefore a wonderful opportunity to join them.

The newly created position of FP&A Accountant will support the forthcoming merger of two brands and will help to continually improve financial performance and decision-making. Reporting to the Head of FP&A, duties include:

  • Understand the drivers of business performance; identify trends & areas of opportunity - suggest remedial action and influence the implementation of initiatives to make improvements where possible.
  • Lead Head Office and other business units in the setting of annual budgets and mid-year forecasts.
  • Produce regular and ad hoc finance packs including commentary / analysis.
  • Support the improvement of management reporting and analysis.
  • A raft of ad hoc projects to support a growing business.

The ideal candidate for the role of FP&A Accountant will:

  • Be a qualified accountant (ACA / CIMA / ACCA) who may have qualified in either commerce or practice.
  • Have gained exposure to a growing international business (insurance experience would be a small bonus).
