Reporting to the Finance Manager the job responsibilities will include accounting for a range of complex funds and liaising with clients as required to discuss any variances. This will include higher level reconciliations of accounting transactions, and assisting to prepare investor reports and statutory statements.

The successful candidate is likely to be nearly, or potentially, recently Qualified (ACA, ACCA), from within an audit/practice firm seeking a move into industry, although fund accounting experience from within industry would also be of definite interest – specific exposure to Real Estate/Property funds would be highly relevant as would previous usage of Xero or Yardi accounting systems. Experience of preparing client accounts within a mid-tier or smaller firm would also be highly relevant for the position. Previous exposure to preparing statutory financial statements and of reviewing statutory accounts would be an advantage but not a pre-requisite for the role.
