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 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.
