We are looking for a Senior Management Accountant who will provide excellent finance support to a growing organisation facilitating the best use of resources across the Academy.
The Royal Academy of Engineering is harnessing the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone. In collaboration with our Fellows and partners, we’re growing talent and developing skills for the future, driving innovation and building global partnerships, and influencing policy and engaging the public.
Together we’re working to tackle the greatest challenges of our age.
In this key position, you will provide outstanding finance support. Acting as our finance lead across all departments, you will be both an internal expert and a key contact for external stakeholders. Day to day, you will provide ad-hoc support to staff, produce management accounts and submit accurate reporting updates to government and other funders. You will also produce working papers for audit, prepare full accounts for subsidiaries, while managing payroll for around 2-3 days per month. So, you can expect considerable variety and an extremely high profile.
We will look to you to exert real influence with operational departments, so you will require broad knowledge and experience of finance business partnering and a good working knowledge of month end processes. A background in management accounts and advanced Excel skills are essential. You will be able to reconcile different sources of data and produce value add reporting and eloquently describe any action required to best manage the finances of the Academy.
In return, we offer an unrivalled package of benefits including a non-contributory pension scheme, BUPA cash plan, private medical insurance, subsidised restaurant, regular social activities, health and wellbeing programmes as well as significant investment into your personal and professional development. You will be based at our airy, stylish offices in a prestigious location, opposite St James's Park.
We have adapted our working practices in response to Covid-19, and all staff are currently working remotely. We support flexible working and would be happy to discuss working patterns with candidates.
