  • Location: London
  • Salary: 10000 bonus + pension, healthcare
  • Job type: Permanent
  • Ref: CH1 - GTA
  • Recruiter: Charles Deere
This vacancy has now expired.
  • Provide technical accounting support to finance teams by investigating, researching and drafting technical accounting guidance to resolve their queries in line with IFRS and accounting policies and procedures in a timely manner.
  • Maintain the 'Accounting Queries log' to track queries being raised by local finance teams and to monitor turn-around of queries by the Technical Accounting team. The log is designed to build a picture of issues being raised to help with consistency of response from the Technical Accounting team and also improve the team's response time.
  • Support the Technical Accounting and Projects Manager with the implementation of new accounting standards, particularly helping to respond to queries and research on IFRS 15 'Revenue from contracts with customers', IFRS 16 'Leases', the UK's 'Payment Practices Reporting' and IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments'.
  • Design and maintain a Technical Accounting site on the group's internal communication sharepoint site. This should enable local finance teams to raise accounting queries and link to guidance and best practice already documented in the Group Policies and Procedures Manual.
  • Draft 'best practice' guidance for the Group Policies and Procedures Manual as a result of accounting queries raised by local finance teams. Support the HPF, Policies, Procedures & Training Manager by drafting new or revised accounting policies and best practice examples for the Accounting policies section of the Group Policies and Procedures Manual.
  • Prepare accounting summaries to show the impact of one-off transactions such as group reorganisations, new funding requirements or business acquisitions and disposals. This requires collaboration with the local finance teams, Group Treasury and Group Tax. The summaries should help the local finance teams record the required double entry, therefore minimising accounting errors, as well as demonstrate the overall accounting impact of the transaction.
  • Help local finance teams in the preparation of accounting papers and fair value workings required to account for business acquisitions and disposals in a timely manner.
