XBRL Accounting and Reporting Executive (Multiple Locations)

 Location: London
 Salary: £30-40000
 Job type: Permanent
 Closes: closed

XBRL Accounting and Reporting (Permanent), London

Our client, a large global financial institution, is seeking an experienced financial reporting specialist who possesses strong XBRL knowledge.


The conversion process involves tagging (mapping) data in the accounts to a "taxonomy", a dictionary of accounting terms, and applying additional attributes to those tags. The FSO Tax (GDS)team in Bangalore do the initial data entry / tagging and the first level review. The UK team (details below) add a further layer of UK quality review / sense check and interact with client handlers (FSO tax managers) and clients directly.

You would be expected to manage their own portfolio of clients and progress their work with limited supervision from the manager. However, the manager would always be on hand for support and advice and to facilitate work that needs to be completed in a shorter than normal timeframe.

The UK XBRL handlers are in London, Leeds, Edinburgh and Dublin and the GDS team are in Bangalore, so the vast majority of intra-team interaction is done by email / Skype / telephone. As a result, this role could be done from any office.

Skills and attributes for success:

  • While a strong working knowledge of iXBRL tagging is required, an equally important skill for our reviewers is a thorough understanding of accounts
  • Ideally we are seeking a minimum of two years’ experience in an accounting department so, Assurance, Accounting Compliance & Reporting, iXBRL processor, Financial Accounting Advisory Services or something similar.

Required experience:

An ideal candidate would have a thorough understanding of UK and Irish GAAP / IFRS accounts and a solid appreciation of the relevant Financial Reporting standards. Attention to detail is key, as well as the ability to manage projects with numerous deliverables and a number of different stakeholders. Good communication skills are also essential as the job requires engagement with clients, colleagues here in the UK and the team in Bangalore.

Although we are looking for someone on a full-time, permanent basis, there is no reason why this couldn't be a job share / part time position and there is scope for flexible hours / other flexible arrangements, as long you can be available by phone / same time throughout the times they are working.

If you possess the relevant experience, please contact us ASAP for further information.
