Your new company
You will be joining a very well-established Lloyd's of London Insurance Broker as their Assistant Financial Accountant on a full-time, permanent basis.

Part of a close-knit team of 3 in finance, you will report into the Finance Director and work closely alongside the Credit Controller. Based in their modern City of London office at least 3 days a week, you will have the opportunity to work from home for the remaining two days. Most of the team come into the office every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but these days are not set in stone.

You will come from an Insurance or Professional Services, Financial Services or Banking background.

You may be studying towards a further Accountancy qualification, but this is not an essential requirement as the hiring manager is open to reviewing candidates who are qualified by the amount of experience they possess.
What you'll get in return
In return, you will receive an annual salary of up to £40,000 (depending on experience) + a tailored study support package (if required and case by case) + benefits and this package will be regularly reviewed to remain in line with market rate.
