Qualified Accountant – Financial Services x 2

Reference: BBBH16605

Location: Belfast Job Type: Permanent Salary: £33,000 - £38,000 Date Posted: 04/09/2020

Newly/Recently Qualified Accountants required for leading international business

You won’t have heard of our client by name because they operate on a global basis liaising with clients across major financial capitals. You may however have heard about them through friends or colleagues that have joined them. Current and previous employees speak very positively about their experience of work-life with this business, often very complimentarily about the local leadership team.

Like many Foreign Direct Invested (FDI) businesses that have set up in Northern Ireland, the local people at the helm have to take the credit for the success and reputation that is built up. No small measure of hard work, commitment and attention to detail has meant that this business, which started with 8 people is now close to 65 employees and looking to move to 80+ in the coming year.

This business views the health pandemic as an obstacle that must be manoeuvred past, not a blockage that halts growth. Not everyone can handle operating at the level this team runs at; here deadlines are met, quality is not being sacrificed, pressure exists and is dealt with. If you are a qualified accountant from a large firm/corporate/local SME you will be considered, how you evidence attitudes and behaviours will determine whether you will be offered one of these jobs.

Some summary points:

Salary – £33,000 – £38,000 + bonus & benefits

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Preparing monthly financial reports
  • Producing variance analysis and associated reports
  • Liaising directly with stakeholders across Europe
  • Producing annual statutory accounts to UK & US GAAP
  • Supporting Managers and Directors on client projects
  • Assisting in the improvement/streamlining of internal procedures

What do we look for:

  • Qualified Accountant – ACA/ACCA/CIMA
  • Strong experience in Financial Accounting
  • Competent MS Excel user
  • Strong communicator both written and verbal
  • Real team player, totally focused on detail, confident in own ability and clear communication skills
