Group Financial Accountant

Posted 11 November by Lowell Group

We're Lowell. Haven't heard of us? Then let us say hello.

You may not know us, but our reputation's growing. We help our customers pay off their debts in practical and affordable ways. And, we do it honestly, ethically, and without any confusing legal jargon. We're expanding quickly, and looking for people who really want to help our customers turn their finances around. People who really want to make a difference. People like you?

So that's us. Now, let's talk about your role.

Working closely with the Group External Reporting Manager, you will be responsible for the Group consolidation of the monthly results. You will be intrinsic to the preparation of the quarterly and annual Group Statutory Financial statements and on the back of group expansion you will play a key role in the identification and implementation of improvements to accounting systems and processes.

The team here at Lowell are clear, this is not a run-of-the-mill Group Financial Accountant and nor are we looking for a run-of-the-mill candidate. In the last few years alone we have made a number of acquisitions which have spanned from the small and straight forward through to the mammoth and industry defining.

With operations across 8 regions in Europe, our Group Financial Accountant does not get the opportunity to experience Groundhog day. Bond raises, post-acquisition integration, and business wide process improvements are just some of the areas where your know-how and experience will be tested and developed.

This will not be straightforward and it will not be easy. It will however challenge you in ways you have not been challenged before, broaden your commercial exposure to a level that will uplift your understanding beyond that of your existing peers, and expose you to projects you will be underlining on your CV for years to come.

And behind the excitement of the day to day, we are lucky enough to have a strong tightly knit group of people across both group and regional finance. We share an ambition to excel and to do it in an environment which encourages fun, freedom and personal and professional development. Whether it be after work drinks with the team or racing the 100m at the finance sports day, you will be welcomed with open arms and quickly feel like you've always been part of the team.

How do we say thank you?

You have a huge impact on our success and our rewards reflect this. As well as a strong salary to reflect your output and potential you will get:

  • Potential to earn up to a 10% annual bonus for a job well done
  • Private Health Insurance
  • Flexible benefits; whether you're into fitness or extra holidays, there's something for you.

  • Cancel your gym membership we have one on site - it's free… and so is the parking.
  • A fantastic culture with more little perks along the way.
  • We trust our team and expect you to work in a flexible way which works for both of us.

The skills and experience we need inlude the following:

  • Experience of preparing statutory accounts and the statutory audit process
  • Experience of consolidations
  • Part or fully qualified (ideally ACA)
  • Research in technical accounting issues
  • Financial services experience (desirable)
  • Experience of Hyperion Financial Management (desirable)

Whilst based in the UK, an ability to travel to overseas offices is desirable, travel is not likely to be extensive but may be required periodically or to establish specific projects.

Once you get here, you'll still be going places. We really want to work with you to make your career what you want it to be, so we offer plenty of different opportunities to help you develop.
