Job description

European Accountant - up to £42,000 plus benefits

Our client is looking to appoint a qualified Accountant as a European Accountant for a 6 month Contract position which may have the possibility of becoming permanent after 6 months depending on certain variables. The European Accountant will produce both the Financial & Management Accounts covering the Southern Europe accounts for the business and the European Accountant will have a high level of attention to detail. IF the position does end up being permanent there is clear progression to a management position or movement into other other finance teams, so if you're looking for real progression, this positron could potentially lead somewhere.

Key duties:

> Preparation of monthly management accounts.
> Preparation of statutory accounts including quarterly statutory Group reporting packs, maintaining local books and managing preparation of local statutory filings (accounts and tax) in conjunction with auditors.
> Maintaining appropriate financial controls and ensuring all balance sheet accounts are reconciled on a monthly basis.
> Supporting the Finance Manager as required through the budgeting and forecasting processes
> Analysing machine and aftermarket margins and selling variances, and performing OPEX variance analysis.
> Assisting in ad hoc project work and issue resolution.
> Providing financial support to local channel operational teams
> Cover as required for European Finance Assistant tasks
> Travel to above territories to assist with local accounting requirements and processes.
> Other duties as reasonably required by the Finance Manager to ensure effective financial controls and excellent service levels are maintained

For this position, we're looking for someone with around 1-2 years post qualification experience, although they will look at part qualified Accountants, but at a slightly lower salary and depending on experience.
