Job Description

Interim Group Controller (IFRS 16), Watford, Hertfordshire
£600- £700p/day, 6 months

Our client, a highly regarded blue-chip with a fantastic reputation for quality and customer loyalty, is looking to source a technically strong Project Manager on an interim basis. The role is initially for 6 months, likely to be extended, given the sheer amount of projects and change currently underway. A key part of this role is to implement IFRS 16 across the business.

Main duties include:
· Lead on governance, control and project management of the whole IFRS16 implementation,
including the direction of the sub group members and their responsibilities
· Key contact to 3rd party software provider, Tagetik
· Lead steering group meetings ensuring status of project is clearly communicated
· Lead implementation of software, incorporating the structure and dataflow of the system
· Liaise with commercial team to ensure project implementation does not impact project or BU
· Lead on scoping and implementation of new month end processes, including journal postings,
balance sheet reconciliations, lease payment processing & mapping to Group reporting
· Lead on scoping and implementation of procedures

This is an exciting role within the brand and one that will offer a true business partnering element. Aside from the technical financial background the successful candidate will also have to demonstrate a strong background in project management.
