Duties include:

  • Preparation and reinstatement of prior year's Annual Accounts in accordance with IFRS from UK GAAP (FRS102) for the group and associated entities. This includes producing and co-ordinating the notes to the Annual Accounts and identifying and managing any changes to the accounting policies;

  • Responding to ad-hoc information requests and performing ad-hoc analysis/project work.

This position required someone to have an ACCA or ACA qualification and ideally be practice trained (Ideally from the top 20). Law firm experience is not essential but beneficial to understand current LLP structure and must have exposure to consolidation of large groups.

Must be willing to work majority of the time in the office once it is safe to do so. Some remote working will however be considered.
