Job Details

The team

Central to our success as a Firm are of course our very talented lawyers, but they couldn't achieve their results without the ongoing support from our Finance team who have an essential role to play in growing the business and maintaining our financial performance.  Our Management Accounts Team play a critical role in our business; they analyse and interpret financial data to aid budget holders' and Partners' decision making processes in achieving business goals.

The role

You will be responsible for assisting in the production of routine daily, monthly and quarterly management information and analysing and interpreting financial data to produce non-routine management reports. You will also contribute to the quality production the monthly management accounts, the annual budgets, the fee earner statistics, Board reporting and other management information from target setting and journal entries through to report production.

You will monitor and respond to the centralised mailbox with management information requests and support the business in responding to queries whilst working on interesting and challenging projects to facilitate the progression of our firmwide reporting from manual excel reports to the online platform Qlik. With that development work you will also facilitate with training fee earners on how to use and interpret financial information to help grow the business.

What are we looking for?

To be successful in this role you should be a part-qualified or newly qualified accountant who is keen to learn, organised, ambitious, have strong Excel skills and be numerically and analytically minded. You should be able to follow directions well but also use your initiative to improve processes and drive efficiencies. You will need to adhere to strict deadlines, working within set processes, as you build your accountancy knowledge.

Although not essential, experience of using Qlik and Aderant would be beneficial. In terms of educational requirements and experience, we're looking for a graduate, with at least two years of experience within a finance role. You will bring strong IT skills in order to analyse and manipulate data and have excellent communication skills in order to present and explain this information. The ideal candidate will be proactive, efficient and keen to take ownership of tasks.
