Interim Finance Analyst | Leicester | £28,000 - £35,000
Are you a part-qualified (ACA, ACCA or CIMA) or AAT Qualified Accountant and available for an immediate start?
Would you consider yourself a dynamic and proactive team player?
Perhaps you have progressed from a transactional finance role into accounts and now you’re looking to take the next step?
If the answer to these questions is yes, this could be a great opportunity for you...
We are supporting a Leicester based SME, with a global presence, who are looking to hire an experienced finance analyst. Initially this is a 6 month contract, however for the right person it is likely to turn into something longer term, or maybe even permanent.
Reporting into the Finance Manager and working closely with the Finance Director you’ll be assisting across the accounts team in managing month end requirements, along with working to resolve a backlog of transactions and improving operational processes. In the short term, you’ll need to be happy with a very hands on roll, as you will be responsible for overseeing purchase ledge, ensuring all invoices are on the system accurately and conducting a review of YTD postings.
Over time the role will become more accounting-orientated and you will be expected to maintain healthy balance sheets, undertake regular analysis and provide various management reports, in order to drive operational improvements. The business is also in the process of introducing new systems, and part of your role will be contributing to the ongoing improvement of systems and processes.
Disclaimer: this role won’t be for everyone... Due to a sustained period of growth, the current needs of the business will require you to put in extra hours, think on your feet and learn quickly. It also needs someone with advanced excel skills such as index matching, pivots, vlookups (VBA would be an advantage, but isn’t essential).
To be considered for this role you must be available immediately, or at short notice.
Jobs you may have applied for include: Management Accountant, Financial Accountant, Finance Analyst, Finance Business Partner, Assistant Accountant, Assistant Management Accountant
