What is on offer?

As a result of an internal move and restructure, AHK has an exciting opportunity for a Group Accountant to work within a growing overseas finance team, specifically our Spanish speaking region. The role will involve travel to our overseas offices around the globe. We offer a great opportunity to broaden your ‘business partnering’ skills as you will work closely with local general and finance managers to perform a variety of accounting and finance related tasks, including being the main contact for the coordination of activities with several overseas companies. Ensuring that overseas offices report accurate monthly management accounts in a timely manner.  Whilst also ensuring that anything reported is both consistent and adheres to local GAAP, group policies and procedures.

The Group Accountant is expected to have strong technical skills and to gain a thorough understanding of the business to enable you to report insightful financial information.  This will mean involvement in all aspects of the overseas entity such as operations, commercials and finance in what is considered very much a ‘business partnering role.
