The role will be suited to a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA/CIPFA) with strong corporate reporting experience (governance, regulatory, statutory etc.) The technical reporting experience must be balanced against good commercial finance experience as you’ll be expected to guide the group executive functions strategy through insightful information.
