Interim Year End Accountant - Lincolnshire - £55,000 - £65,000 - 6 months FTC

Would you consider yourself a good technical accountant with plenty of year-end audit experience? Are you ACA or ACCA qualified with a practice background? Do you enjoy being hands-on and resolving accounting issues? If you answered yes to these questions, this could be an ideal opportunity for you...

We are working with a business, based in Lincolnshire, who are looking to bring in some additional support over year-end for a period of 6 months, which is likely to be extended further.

Initially, you will be supporting the Financial Controller in getting through the statutory audit. This will involve preparing for the audit, tidying the balance sheets, dealing with sample requests and interfacing between the business and it's auditors. The company currently has systems and controls issues, therefore is expecting the audit to be reasonably challenging, with large sample requests. For this reason it is particularly important that this person has practice experience and knows what the auditors want to see. 

Post-audit, they would like this person to stick around and help them to resolve the accounting and controls issues. You will be required to implement improved controls, update and documents processes, up-skill the team, manage the flow of data, build new financial models and automate processes, where possible. This is a great opportunity for those who like to make a difference and leave places in a better state than they found them. 

You'll be joining the business at an exciting transformation stage, where they are re-organising the structure, upgrading systems and undergoing various other improvements. Due to Covid-19 the role is currently remote working, however they anticipate returning to the office for 2-3 days per week once things open up again. 

What we're looking for:
- ACA or ACCA qualified accountant
- Practice background
- 3-6 years industry experience in an audit-facing role
- Good knowledge of accounting and controls procedures
- Good understanding of revenue recognition and how it impacts the balance sheet
- A hands-on and proactive individual
