Accountant Group Reporting


Working with the Head of Group Reporting, the Group Reporting Accountant will lead a team that will be responsible for developing and implementing best practice group reporting. The focus of the role will be on two areas:

The preparation and presentation of the statutory financial accounts, including the consolidation of ALOs. The role will not only ensure the accounts are produced in accordance with best practice and accounting standards, but that these are prepared in an efficient way.

The preparation and presentation of the group management accounts. Responsible for implementing a new and consistent view of collating and reporting the group management accountants in a format that is insightful and accessible to Ministers, the Chief Executive and DGs. This will not only report accurate numbers, but provide the wider context and underlying information that will allow informed decisions to be made.

The post holder, alongside the Head of Group Reporting, will enable the team to take the steps necessary to adapt to changes in financial reporting standards by horizon-scanning the opportunities and risks presented by new standards and best practice.
