Management Accountant, Edinburgh (£30,000 - £34,000)

Change Recruitment Group have been engaged to support a rapidly growing Edinburgh based SME, in their search for an experienced Management Accountant. Based on the East of the city, the business is in the process of going through a period of positive transformation as they look to more than double their UK capacity over the next 5yrs, driven by the opening of multiple new sites across the UK, which in itself has seen the appointment of a new Head of Finance who is now looking to shape and build out the Finance function accordingly, so as to best support the needs of the business going forward.

The role is very much a 'sleeves rolled up' opportunity, that will see the successful candidate get involved in a wide range of tasks and areas of responsibility, aside from the core management accounting aspect of the role.

Key areas of initial responsibility include:

· Preparation of monthly management accounts for multiple sites
· Balance sheet reconciliations
· Bank reconciliations
· Overseeing the ledgers, whilst supporting the Finance Assistant
· Posting journals, accruals and prepayments
· Full review of payroll
· Identifying and implementing process improvements that will support the growth of the business

There will also be a degree of business partnering with various sites across the UK, so we're looking for a confident and engaging personality who'll be able to support non-finance personnel in key decision making. Similarly, we're looking for someone with an inquisitive approach, who holds a desire to 'make things better', especially in areas such as finance systems, processes, procedures and generally just being able to identify areas of improvement within the Finance function.

Although there are no supervisory responsibilities within the current role, you will be expected to deputise for the Head of Finance from time to time, and therefore require someone who is comfortable in doing so, and who will lead by example at all times and really drive the performance of the Finance team.

This is a really exciting time for the Group, and where the business aim to be 5yrs from now.

In order to be considered for the role, you must meet the following criteria:

· QBE, PQ or Qualified will all be considered
· Strong background in preparing management accounts
· Ability and appetite to get the sleeves rolled up
· You will have drive and energy
· Excellent communication skills
· Happy getting stuck into all types of finance transactions inc. payments, payroll, debt management etc.
· Previous experience of going through a period of change and development of the processes and systems in Finance

Our client are looking to move forward on this appointment fairly quickly, and as such, the process itself will be fairly swift. We would therefore ask that interested and suitable applicants submit their application at the earliest opportunity.
