The Weir Group PLC (Weir) is a FTSE 100 global engineering business headquartered in Glasgow. Celebrating its 150th year, 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.
As the business enters a new and exciting chapter of its illustrious 150 year history, it has identified the need to recruit this role in order to continue to strengthen the Group Finance team.
This is a key position within the Group Finance function, with a focus on projects which will help to improve the quality and effectiveness 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 including guidance for application, plus standardisation of compliance and reporting requirements.
This opportunity has come about due to an internal promotion and is a great opportunity for an ambitious qualified accountant to join one of Scotland’s few remaining head quartered plc’s.
