Your new company

A growing Catering division of a wider Hospitality group are looking to hire for a Financial Controller job, which will be based in their London offices. The division provides catering for the wider group's events, as well as for private parties and external events.

Recently, they have taken on new contracts with some key client which has increased their turnover, and hence they have created this new role to support the Finance Director. The team around you is a steady one, with some valuable time spent in this industry, and company.

Your new role

As the Financial Controller, you will be supporting the Finance Director in a very broad, and hands-on role. In doing this job, you will be responsible for producing detailed management accounts, as well as running a full monthly balance sheet reconciliation.

There is a wider team of accountants in the finance team here, who will support you with more transactional pieces of work - however, managing them is not a part of the role, which will allow to really focus on your own work and develop your accounting potential.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to be either fully qualified, or QBE, with key experience working in an SME, in a hands-on role, where you have gained exposure to bank reconciliations, and working with Sage (preferably Sage 200).

Experience working in a Catering, or Leisure & Hospitality, company will be a bonus but is not essential to perform well in this role.

What you'll get in return

You will be rewarded with a generous salary, and full benefits package including 22 days holiday (rising to 25 with time in service), pension scheme, lunch provided and wider incentives as part of the Events group.

You will also have the chance to work with a leading Hospitality business, surrounded by team members who will enable you to develop both personally and professionally.
