reviewing fund trial balances and subsequently resolving or referring any arising issues as appropriate
providing analytical review of management accounts
•       You'll also put your problem solving and communication skills to great use, by working with key stakeholders to                ensure the timely clearance of suspense items and the reconciliation of any outstanding items
Where any issues are encountered, you'll identify and implement process improvements and fixes to eradicate 
        root causes

What we're looking for:

You’re likely to be a newly qualified accountant, who must be able to demonstrate:  
a strong finance background, along with up to date accounting knowledge and a practical understanding of policy           systems
proven supervisory experience and leadership ability, coupled with excellent analytical and book- keeping skills
a good degree of computer literacy, covering MS Office (particularly Excel), General Ledgers, plus some familiarity            with Oracle GL.

We love working with self-motivated and driven people, who enjoy communicating with others, and are passionate about using their initiative to solve problems and improve the way we work.
