Finance Manager - Corporate Finance
Allen Lane are currently working with a local authority to recruit a Finance Manager for their corporate finance function. The main focus of this role is to cover corporate control, reconciliations, banking admin and VAT/general taxation, so excellent financial accounting skills will be essential. However the scope of the role will extend beyond this to include responsibilities as outlined below:
- Assisting with the Year-End closure process to ensure its timely completion
- Implementing recommendations from Internal and External Audit
- Providing expert advice on the development and application of accounting policies and processes
- Managing implementation of a programme of quality assurance and compliance checks on critical outsourced activities
Alongside technical financial accounting skills, the successful candidate will have solid management skills as they will be managing a team of two. Local government experience would be beneficial; however they would consider candidates outside of that with experience in complex reconciliations.
This will be a quick start so you will need to be able to start on a maximum of one week’s notice. Please note that due to the urgent time frames on this post applications will be reviewed prior to closing date and as such immediate application is recommended.
