The key focus of the role will be in providing support to the Financial Controller by ensuring delivery of month-end requirements (including statutory and regulatory reporting), registers, schedules, reconciliations and other support functions are completed in a timely and accurate manner to support financial reporting. The role will also provide support to the Financial Controller in providing reporting, analysis, and commentary on results to the CFO, the Board, and Group Finance. There will be ongoing opportunity to be involved in ad-hoc project initiatives in addition to the core duties of the role.
