Our client is one of the most established and longest-running names in European Private Equity and in recent years has made the move to expand into new alternative strategies and become a true multi-strategy, globally aware investor. As part of this shift, they have been building out their back office functions and to that effect are looking to add someone to their group finance team to have responsibility over the Real Estate strategy.

Description

Reporting into an experienced and impressive Head of Finance, the appointee will have responsibility for the corporate Real Estate entities, driving internal and external reporting requirements as well as working across budgeting and forecasting processes alongside the CFO.

  • Responsibility for the year-end close for the relevant corporate entities, as well as being the direct point of contact for auditors.
  • Preparation of monthly management reporting to the Real Estate Management Committee, working directly with the Real Estate CFO to monitor variances to budget.
  • Leading role on the annual budget process for the Real Estate division, working with the Fund Finance team to build revenue and cost assumptions for the 3 year business model.
  • Further responsible for a range of other group finance activities, including certain external reporting requirements and oversight of key Research & Subscription contracts, working directly with vendors on contract renewals.

As the function grows and further develops, more duties and opportunity will naturally be afforded to this person and the organisation as a whole is very entrepreneurial. 

Skills

  • ACA qualified.
  • Knowledge of statutory accounting.
  • Excellent stakeholder management and able to proactively manage workload and adhere to deadlines.
  • Educated to degree level.
  • Strong technical and excel skills.
