job description

Working as part of the financial controls team, this is an exciting development role for an ambitious trainee Accountant, seeking progression in a business that champions best practice, and is able to offer extensive opportunities for those looking for a career in finance.

Based in Chippenham you'll be working for a leading 3PL business, with an extensive presence across the UK. As part of the SSC you'll get exposure to a highly commercial client facing finance function, able to offer broad-ranging exposure to a variety of stakeholders.

Reporting to the Finance Manager with day to day responsibility for:

- Accurate and timely preparation of monthly accounting tasks
- Supporting the cashier function
- Account Reconciliations
- Reporting and analysis
- Improving information streams to deliver reliable and accurate cash forecasts and proactively building relationships across the business
- Ensuring internal controls and procedures are robust and regularly tested for compliance.
- Ad hoc project work and development opportunities as directed by the Finance Manager

This would suit a PQ / Trainee Accountant (ACCA, CIMA, ACA) and some prior commercial exposure would be ideal. However, the ability to demonstrate an analytical/methodical approach to accounts, with a proactive attitude towards process development and a commitment to continuous improvement would be essential.

Excellent Excel skills and working use of formulas and macros is desirable

If interested, apply and I'll be in touch to discuss further.

Appointment will be made on merit alone but candidates must be able to demonstrate their ability to work in the UK. Randstad Financial & Professional acts as an employment agency for permanent recruitment & an employment business for temporary recruitment as defined by the Conduct of Employment Agencies & Employment Business Regulations 2003
