Head of Financial Reporting

 Location: Edinburgh
 Salary: £Six figure salary and benefits package
 Job type: Permanent
 Closes: closed

This Head of Financial Reporting job in Edinburgh with a world-class institutional investor is an outstanding opportunity for a fully qualified accountant to lead a newly created financial reporting team and in so doing, ensuring the wider business is able to meet its goals as per the business plan.  The successful candidate will have overall responsibility for compliance with all reporting requirements (Statutory and Regulatory, as well as all internal reporting).  In addition, you'll have overall responsibility for the implementation and development of tax and prudential policy as well as successfully managing the relationship with external auditors and outsourced Global Mobility and tax services.


To be successful, it is envisaged that you will be a fully qualified accountant (or similar) with demonstrable leadership experience gained in a multi-national organisation.  Indeed, your leadership skills and ability to gather the team around your vision for the department will be a key measure of success. This ability, as well as the ability to assimilate information, ascertain the salient points and ask relevent challenging questions of key stakeholders are of greater importance than your technical knowledge.  Furthermore, given the ever increasing international reach of the business, experience of a multi-jurisdictional and multi-currency environment is absolutely key.


The business has a well-deserved reputation for quality, and offers a truly supportive, friendly and meritocratic environment in which to operate.  This role has tremendous long term prospects and offers high quality and stimulating work.
