What this Financial Accountant job offers you:

Excellent Financial Accountant job in Galway for a recently qualified accountant to further develop your experience in industry with one of Galway’s top employers. As a Qualified Financial Accountant in a company renowned for team collaboration, world-class IT systems and strong employee recognition & development initiatives, this job will offer you excellent autonomy, flexibility and accountability, in the new, state-of-the-art facility of a highly successful, well-established multinational company.

With options to work from home 2-3 days a week, this newly created senior finance position has arisen as a result of increased business for the Finance Centre of Excellence in Galway.

Your new job:

Joining a collaborative team of 6 top performing accountants in the Financial Accounting Team of this new Finance Centre of Excellence (over 23 finance staff in total), you will be empowered with providing all financial accounting and reporting requirements for a number of entities in the EMEA region or the rest of world (ROW) for this global company. 

Reporting directly to the Finance Director, SSC, you will be given autonomy for:

  • Preparing monthly financial statements, statutory accounts and related financial analysis in accordance with IFRS, US GAAP and local GAAP requirements
  • Reviewing and approving corporation tax and deferred tax asset/liability, as well as preparing & filing tax and VAT returns.
  • Working with corporate finance team, and internal customers to create a SSC environment that strives for global consistency of best practices
  • Assisting with the integration of acquisitions
  • Liaising with auditors, tax advisors and legal teams re compliance and reporting requirements
  • Supporting the EMEA SSC Director, and the VP of Finance Europe with process improvement projects and ad-hoc finance projects
  • Driving global process and systems improvement initiatives for financial reporting, with particular emphasis on IT systems investment

The best parts of the job:

The biggest attraction of this job, {outside of the fact that you will be involved in a growing SSC – an exciting time to join the company and take on a job that will allow for lots of autonomy and creativity to make the job your own}, is that it’s with one of Galway’s best companies to work for, if not The Best.

Having worked as a Recruitment Partner to this company for over 15 years, I can say without hesitation that they are an excellent employer. Here are some of the reasons why:

  1. They offer early progression to people who are “promotion ready”, tending to offer jobs to ambitious people who are looking for the “next step” in their career, rather than the person already doing the same job elsewhere.
  2. The management team and all their employees are extremely impressive – grounded, pragmatic, competent people who really pull together to get things done.
  3. The company really value its employees. Management put focus on the people who work for them and adopt a flexible approach to work that allows each person to work to their best, adapting the working environment/job to each individual’s needs/strengths.
  4. They offer clear career paths for development for each employee, as well as highly competitive remuneration packages.
  5. They always think long-term, they move quickly in decision making and they do things right, first time, every time.
  6. Every person that I have placed with this company over the last few months, and years, are delighted with the company, and with their jobs.

They truly are an impressive company in Galway and are therefore attracting the best talent in Galway for their open vacancies.
