Rutherford Cross is delighted to be retained again by our key client The Weir Group to recruit a newly created Technical Project Accountant role to be based in their Head Office in Glasgow.
The Weir Group PLC (Weir) is a FTSE 250 global engineering business headquartered in Glasgow. The company’s global footprint spans more than 60 countries and employs more than 11,000 people. Founded in 1871, Weir engineers solutions that improve safety, efficiency, and sustainability – helping to provide the essential resources needed by a growing world. Significant growth and restructuring both operationally and in terms of its geographical footprint, culminating in the agreed sale of the Oil & Gas division, has enabled the Group’s transformation into a focused premium mining technology business through its Weir Minerals and Weir ESCO divisions. Weir has developed clear strategic initiatives centred around safety, employee satisfaction, inclusion and diversity, and sustainability as well as operational growth.
Weir has reported continually strong revenue and profit growth in recent years. In 2020 the Group reported revenue of £2bn and profit before tax of £255m. These are highly impressive results, especially during an extended period of general economic uncertainty, with Weir well placed to benefit as markets recover. Weir represents a true global success story headquartered in Scotland.
As the business enters a new and exciting chapter of its illustrious history, it has identified the need to strengthen its Group team with the creation of this role.
This is a key position within the Group Finance function, with a focus on projects which will help to improve the quality and efficiency of accounting across the group and ensure continued compliance with regulatory reporting. The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of IFRS, with knowledge of recent and upcoming developments, with an interest in systems and controls. This individual will be involved across the annual reporting cycle with a focus on ad-hoc areas, development of statutory disclosures and policy, plus standardisation of compliance and reporting requirements.
