Are you a strong year end accountant looking for a 6 month contract in a complex organisation? Do you have experience running year end in organisations with group structures and diverse income streams? Are you looking for a hybrid role where you can take pride in delivering a strong set of financial statements?

My client is a Higher Education institution in Hertfordshire that has some interesting projects underway that add complexity to their business model. They are seeking interim support to deliver year end on a 6 month contract. Key responsibilities of the Interim Year End Accountant are:

  • Delivering year end in a complex group structure environment
  • Leading on the production of financial statements, ensuring accuracy in the year end process
  • Being the key liaison for external auditors and providing a strong point of contact throughout the process
  • Submitting the relevant OFS financial templates
  • Focusing on areas of particular complexity including joint venture accounting and charitable subsidiaries, meeting all regulatory requirements as needed.

This is a chance to take the lead on, and deliver, a complex year end in a fast moving and forward thinking organisation. The role offers a hybrid working arrangement with the opportunity to work in attractive offices and balance a good amount of home working.

To be considered, candidates should meet these criteria:

  • Be a fully qualified accountant or QBE with exceptional experience leading year end
  • Have led numerous year ends, ideally in the Education sector, though candidates with experience delivering year end in organisations with complex group structures should also be encouraged to apply
  • Be available with two weeks’ notice or less

This position can move to interviewing as soon as strong candidates come forward – please apply now.
