My client is a leading business operating within the Logistics / Fleet Services Industry.

FRS have been enlisted to assist with the recruitment of a commercially focused Accountant to join the business on an ongoing temporary basis, to deliver an improvement project.

Due to the above, the position can be outside of the scope of IR35 and pay a day rate of £300-£350 PD.

The contract length is ongoing and the role is to be based from our client”s offices in Coventry, Warwickshire.

The project is focused around one of their retail client contracts, which generates c£21m revenue of which there are fixed and variable elements.
There is a disconnect between the invoicing / customer recharge and the Financial P&L reconciliation.

My client has earmarked that the current process is inefficient, and has also identified key man and operational risk elements.

Role Purpose: Act as an interface between Analysis Team and Finance.

Duties:

• Support the financial reconciliation of recharge and contract deliverables
• Establish accounting methodology and processes of the 12 weeks (13 per annum) invoicing periods, reconciling to the 12 Monthly P&L – in conjunction with the Finance Manager
• Establish Governance and controls aligned to contract, including analysis and reporting of leakage and dilution of revenue / income
• Establish processes, removing current manual workarounds including making recommendations to operational improvement requirements; enabling full invoice automation and revenue leakage reduction

The ideal candidate will be formally qualified with PQE gained in similar positions, however those that are QBE with suitable experience will also be considered.

This role requires a high level of stakeholder engagement, therefore strong business partnering skills are key.

Candidates will also need to demonstrate strong abilities around MS Excel for Analysis of data sets.

This is an urgent requirement, with my client ideally wishing to complete interviews ASAP, with candidates starting before 1st September.
