Job description:

This business operates in a fast moving retail sector and has grown steadily through acquisition to become a leading supplier of specialist products and services. Some recent restructuring has led to the creation of a new position for a Group Finance Manager to be based at their head office function in North Manchester. Reporting directly to the Finance Director this role will be responsible for preparing the monthly management accounts and ensuring the general ledgers and control accounts are fully maintained and reconciled. You will be reporting on high volumes of cash and card transactions and therefore must have experience of working in a busy, fast paced finance function. Key duties will include:

  • Co-ordinating the preparation of monthly P&L accounts for multiple sites
  • Managing the month end processes
  • Monthly balance sheet reconciliations
  • Preparation and posting of month end journals
  • Analysis and preparation of prepayments and accruals
  • Preparation of monthly intercompany reconciliations
  • Management reporting
  • Banking and cash control for the group
  • Supporting the year end audit and statutory accounts preparation

You will be responsible for supervising direct reports and providing support and mentoring to a large transactional team, you must also have strong attention to detail and excellent communication skills to co-ordinate reporting from store managers.

Previous experience of a multi-site retail business would be very advantageous for this role, they have recently migrated to SAGE 200 so the ability to enhance and improve reporting processes would also be highly beneficial. Qualifications are not essential for this position, my client is looking for a hands on accountant with a good breadth of experience to manage the finance department and ensure all transactions are controlled and reported accurately.

Please apply now to be considered for this vacancy. If you are interested in Finance jobs and Accountancy vacancies in Lancashire and Greater Manchester please forward your CV to AFR Consulting and we can support your job search!

Really impressed with AFR Consulting and their speedy effort to find me suitable employment. Tammy and Sarah really had my best interests at heart and the whole experience was much more of personal service than a business transaction as found at other recruitment agencies. I would certainly be using them in the future after trusting them to find me the perfect job.
