A Media business in the heart of London is hiring for a Group Project Accountant to cover a high-profile role with influence across the business.

This hybrid Project Accountant role will give you exposure across the group, gaining both financial and analysis skills. Success in this role will progress into a Senior Finance Analyst position, which in turn has been a stepping stone in the past to Regional Finance Director for high performers. If you are looking to move into industry, or are unsatisfied with the progression in your role, then this is a real opportunity to fast track your career.

  • Review of the group's Sarbanes Oxley compliance database;

  • Periodic control reviews and investigations at operating businesses (about twice a year).

The Project Accountant role would suit a qualified ACA with good financial reporting and controls knowledge with exposure to large businesses, someone with credibility to influence senior stakeholders, and who has strong Excel and analysis skills.
