Your New Company

An established, world leading company looking into providing software solutions to some of the world's fasting growing businesses is looking to hire a Financial Controller for the UK, in a newly created role.

This role has been created to the growth of nearly 30% YOY for the last few years, and so they are keen to set up a UK Finance function to ensure this growth continues for years to come.

Your New Role

This is a sole-charge role working for a fast growing company, and so you will be responsible for reporting into the US Group function under US GAAP. There is also a requirement in this role to set-up an effective accounting framework and related internal controls, and maintain these.

You will also liaise directly with the Top 4 audit firm to ensure that the UK's accounts are compliant with the accounting standards at all times. Due to the lean finance team at the company, you will be the main person responsible for the tax filings, and liaising with HMRC to ensure that the business is in the best place it can be on this front.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to be a fully qualified accountant, with clear experience working under US GAAP, and knowledge of Tax - both personal and corporate.

You will also need to be able to prove an ability to business partner with the non-finance functions in the business, primarily the Sales team, but occasionally others.

What you'll get in return

As well as being remunerated with a competitive salary in this position, the company has historically paid out on a 10% bonus scheme.

The offices are based very centrally with excellent transport links to the office, which will allow for a less stressful commute - as well as the ability to socialise after work.
