Interim Group FC role at a small West end based Private Equity fund - immediate start by end of July via umbrella company.

This is a genuinely broad and hands-on role suited to someone coming from a background in corporate accounting in a SME company environment (funds experience an advantage but not essential) and is a back fill for just under 3 months whilst the new permanent appointee sees out their notice period, starting end of July and handing over in early to mid October.

  • Overseeing the production and accuracy of monthly management reports including expenditure versus budget and forecast, cashflow actuals and forecast, divergence analysis, commentary and consolidation.
  • Preparation of financials for monthly Board packs, including financial analysis.
  • Ad-hoc project assistance.

The candidate:

  • Qualified accountant - ACA, CA, ACCA, ACMA, CPA or equivalent - with a background in a similar senior corporate accounting position at Finance Manager or Financial Controller level; must have hands on experience and be happy to prepare all relevant accounts and reports/packs (supported by a PQ).
  • Advanced Excel skills and ideally some exposure to cloud based accounting software packages.
  • An outgoing and positive mind-set; self-motivated and able to work autonomously.
  • Comfortable being office based 1-2 days a week in Central London.

Day rate on offer is £400-500 per day (umbrella).
