In 2009, our client set out to be the bank helping those with ideas, big and small, to realise their dreams and to seek and seize opportunity in their personal and professional lives. Today, they're an award winning bank that has helped fund the growth of Britain’s small businesses through a range of business finance solutions, specialist mortgages and savings accounts that provides their customers with the support they need to make things happen.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking to start an exciting career in banking. Assistant Accountants in our clients Financial Control team set the benchmarks for cost control and provide the final checks and balances for all internal control systems and processes ensuring effectiveness and efficiency across the bank. It’s a dynamic environment in which to gain invaluable career experience.

The Role

Preparing financial accounting journals and bank reconciliations across various business lines, you’ll set out to be accurate and timely in everything you do. That will include investigating and resolving any differences found, supporting month-end activities and producing weekly KPI reporting. You’ll also ensure we comply with our regulatory obligations, support your colleagues as needed and identify opportunities for process improvement wherever possible.

The Person

From experience in a similar role or environment, you’ll have a good working knowledge of Journals and Bank Reconciliations. And while an accounting qualification or specific financial services experience would be an advantage, intermediate or advanced Excel skills are essential. You’ll also have excellent analytical and strong communication skills, understand the importance of process and are always vigilant for opportunities to improve. Just as important is the ability to work as an effective team member, proactively supporting colleagues when required and developing good working relationships across the business.
