Group Integrations Accountant – Newbury – £50-65k package (including bonus and bens)

Really interesting role for ACA looking to move from a top 6 practice or currently working in a group head office and looking for a new challenge. My client is an AIM listed technology business.

You will work in a small head office team and be part of the annual statutory cycle of annual and half year reporting.   But the main thrust of this role will be to help new European acquisitions integrate with the PLC.

As such my client is looking for a personable ACA with PLC audit experience who has a business partner facing personality and will enjoy working with operations to help them understand and execute corporate governance requirements.

This role will involve some European travel (possibly a week a month) but the new hire will be able to manage this rather than be forced into a rigid timetable.

The head office is also the UK finance head office so there is a large finance community as well as operations on site as part of your larger team.

Future progression is excellent, either into a bigger group role, possibly internationally or into a mainstream or commercial finance role.

Benefits are very competitive and include bonus.

To apply, please email in your CV with details of your current package (broken down to basic, bons + bens), notice period and a short note about why this role appeals.
