This is an opportunity to join an established and successful technology-based business, based at the company’s UK head offices.  The business had trebled in size over the last 5 years, and has continued growth plans, so this will be an exciting time to be joining, with excellent prospects for development and progression.

Salary guide: £35,000-£40,000.  Benefits include a quarterly bonus (up to 10% of salary), contributory pension scheme and private health cover, 24 days holiday, rising to 25 after one year service, plus an additional 3 days off over Christmas. plus bank holidays. ACCA or CIMA study support package available for part-qualified candidates.  Standard working hours: 9am-5pm (1 hour lunch).  Applications will also be considered (on a pro rata salary basis) for candidates preferring slightly reduced working hours – eg. 30 hours spread across the 5 days, rather than the standard 35. 

A substantial element of the role will involve business analysis and reporting, so candidates will need to have good skills and an interest in this area.  You will be using a BI data mining tool to extract reports from SAP, then manipulating that data in Excel to produce a variety of reports and analysis (strong Excel skills required).  And there will be opportunities for you to add real value in this area, looking into ways of further developing/enhancing these reports.  You will be providing product pricing, profitability analysis and management reporting across various departments.  And you’ll also be supporting in the preparation of bids and tenders, where input may be required by the finance team.  You will be supporting month end accounts production - accruals, prepayment, journals.  Additional smaller areas of involvement could include for example EC Sales List and ensuring that sales team expenses have been processed correctly via Concur.

This role may be particularly well suited to a part-qualified candidate with strong business analytical skills, but applications are also welcomed from suitably skilled/experienced candidates who are not currently actively studying.  Previous experience of using SAP would be beneficial but is not essential.  And previous experience of working in a similarly complex multicurrency business environment would also be an advantage, as would previous experience of dealing with revenue recognition issues.
