- Ownership of the Risk & Control Matrix, Risk Register, and other similar documents e.g. contracts log etc including instigating reviews by the business and other finance team members 
- Manage the external audit process acting as a facilitator between the auditors and other members of the Opticians finance team 
- Ensure compliance with all Group Financial Control Policies and Procedures through appropriate schemes of delegated authority and an effective business risk management process 

Your Experience...
- Qualified accountant with technically strong in terms of accounting standards and proficient at using IFRS  
- Good communicator – able to explain technical details to others 
- Project management skills – able to manage multiple work streams and stakeholders 

What’s on offer…
- Salary will be up to £55,000 + Bonus + 8% Pension + Benefits
