MPA Recruitment has been appointed by an international Financial Services firm in London to source a Client Services Accountant to join their team. You will have responsibility for the day-to-day management of a portfolio of clients in Private Equity and Real Estate Fund Management.

You will review quarterly and annual financial statements and reports, ensuring financial statements meet the Funds’ reporting requirements. You will review drawdown calculations to ensure accuracy of figures as Funds seek access to their commitments from investors; review distribution calculations to ensure the flow of funds from the sale of an investment are accurately recorded so that proceeds are appropriately allocated and paid to investors; and ensure the accurate communication of all cash movements between the Fund and its Investors through the issuance of relevant notices to investors.

You will oversee the preparation and completion process of Client deliverables including agreeing time tables with Clients, and thereafter monitoring progress against these to ensure deliverables are on track. Your role will involve weekly Client calls with CFO’s or Financial Controller’s to ensure open and effective communication at all times. You will also be responsible for the training and development of junior team members, leading staff appraisals, effectively providing feedback, support and setting objectives to each individual.

You will have 3+ years’ experience working in a professional office environment, preparing and reviewing financial statements from source books and records; this will ideally be working in financial services or an accounting practice with multiple clients. You will have strong experience in the review of working paper files and Financial Statements including disclosures. You will be ACA or ACCA qualified or qualified by experience having worked in fund accounting or fund administration.

You will receive a competitive salary and market leading benefits package reflective of your experience.
