About the Role:

Working in a wider London based Holdings & Treasury (HaT) team of 25+ professional accountants; you will have overall responsibility for ensuring efficient and tightly controlled quarterly Group reporting and annual statutory reporting processes are in place to support a number of holding companies that have all had their reporting migrated to shared business service centres.
