My client is a leading and yet still rapidly expanding business within the professional services industry, with offices based across Leicestershire / Staffordshire / Shropshire and Manchester.

Due to anticipated growth, FRS have been enlisted to assist with the recruitment of a Management Accountant / Finance Manager on a full time and permanent basis.

This position is to support the Head of Finance with preparing reports, implementing efficient and diligent financial practices and be involved in the day-to-day running of the company accounts.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience gained in a similar management accounting biased position, and be working towards a formal qualification (AAT / ACA / ACCA / CIMA) if not already qualified.

Good IT Literacy skills to include MS Excel (Pivots / Look Ups) for analysis are key, and experience of Xero is desirable but not essential.

Excellent interpersonal and communication skills coupled with confidence is key, as business partnering key stakeholders across the group is part of this role.

This is both a highly progressive role and business and therefore this position is well suited to candidates that are looking to continue to grow in their career.

A basic salary of £30,000 to £40,000 coupled with bonus and excellent benefits await.

Study support for those still studying will be offered.
