Job Description

We are looking for a new, or recent, graduate to support the financial accounts, management accounts and treasury functions.  The role will be split, with around 60% financial and management accounting and around 40% treasury/cashiering.  The successful candidate will join the UK agency finance team of 5 within the UK finance department of 17.

The successful candidate will have an excellent academic background with a first or upper second-class degree in a mathematical, scientific, engineering or economics discipline.  We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who has an eye for detail and a positive "can do" attitude.  The candidate will have exposure to staff at all levels of the company and will need strong communication skills.

We will support study for an accounting qualification.  This will include all training and exam fees, as well as a study leave package.

This unusually broad role is an excellent opportunity for a graduate embarking upon their career as an accountant in the financial services industry.  The variety of accounting areas covered by the role will complement an accountancy qualification well and should prove a satisfying challenge for the right candidate.  The jobholder will work closely with the Head of Agency Finance and the Chief Cashier.

We expect the role to evolve and develop in future to fit the talents of the successful candidate and the opportunities within the company.
