Change Financial Services are working with a leading professional services client to hire a Treasury Accountant to their team. As this area of the business continues to expand, the range of duties undertaken by the individual will develop covering elements of treasury accounting, hedge accounting and wider reporting and analysis.

Applicants will have a solid grasp of balance sheet accounting and financial statements to be able to apply this to financial instruments and how financial markets can impact on these. Interested in finding out more, the key duties of the role will include;

  • Responsible for hedge accounting treatment for treasury instruments
  • Solid understanding of the balance sheet and P&L in order to track and report on relevant movements
