We are regularly handling assignments for lessors seeking qualified (ACA or ACCA) accountants to undertake various important accounting roles. Requirements often come about following restructure and growth, and are likely to involve the preparation and monitoring of management information. Many are pan-European positions and applicants will be expected to take full responsibility for group statutory reporting. In such cases you will need to be aware of differing reporting and tax structures throughout Europe. Systems development and IT project experience can also be seen as a major benefit by certain prospective employers. Roles vary considerably and we would therefore be keen to discuss specific suitable opportunities with qualified individuals on a case by case basis.
