The Person MUST be ACA/ACCA qualified with at least 3-5 years' post qualification experience in accounting and reporting and a strong proficiency in using Excel. The preferred candidate will be seeking a 'hands on role in which to potentially grow into an FD in the next 3 to 5 years. Internationale exposure as well as real estate / PE experience is key as is strong technical accounting acumen - consolidations, analysis and reporting being key. Familiarity of property valuations and multi-unit retail experience would be advantageous as would an additional European language (German, French or Polish); however, it is not a prerequisite. Sound knowledge and experience of the retail sector will be helpful. This is a very good opportunity to work for a quasi-start up specialist with a growing pan-European presence.
