This is a great opportunity within a successful, retail business, based in Hereford. The Financial Accountant will report directly into the Financial Controller, in a key role which will focus on supporting the existing finance function in developing, streamlining, documenting and embedding updated financial processes into the business; and to eliminate & mitigate process risk.

As Financial Accountant your key responsibilities will include:

  • Calculations of VAT
  • Statutory and external reporting.
  • Month End activities.
