Lusona’s client, a large Glasgow-based global corporate, are now looking to appoint a Financial Reporting Accountant to work alongside their hedge-fund accounting team. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop existing technical accounting skills in a dynamic, forward-thinking business.

Joining a specialist financial reporting team, you will be responsible for preparing year-end financial statements and relevant supporting information for a portfolio of Hedge Fund clients from across the globe. While this role reports to a local manager, you will have the opportunity to liaise directly with international clients, as well as regular exposure to senior members of the team. Hedge-fund or retail-fund accounting experience (including Net Asset Value calculations) would be beneficial, however this role would also suit those with audit experience and/or experience of preparing financial statements.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Preparation of annual Financial Statements for clients
  • Preparing comprehensive year-end information packs and all relevant supporting documents for client auditors
  • Regular communication with designated Account Managers around audit and financial reporting queries, planning and deadlines
  • Highlighting and implementing process improvement changes to maximise the team’s efficiency in a dynamic environment.
  • Maintaining and developing your technical knowledge and skills

You will be a qualified Accountant (ACCA/CIMA/CA) or finalist with fund accounting or financial statement preparation/audit experience. You will thrive in a fast-paced environment, with a good understanding of the financial services industry. Strong interpersonal skills are imperative, paired with the ability to effectively communicate with clients across the globe. You will be highly motivated in your approach and maintain a high standard of accuracy and numeracy at all times.

£Competitive Salary (DOE) + Benefits. Our client offers fantastic working environment and progression opportunities. For more information please contact Lynsey Kerr on (0)141 530 4333 or
