Rutherford Cross Retained by STV to Appoint Group Accountant

Rutherford Cross is delighted to be retained by STV to appoint the newly created position of Group Accountant. Reporting to the Head of Statutory Reporting, this represents an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated, qualified accountant to join one of Scotland’s best-known brands, providing a rare opportunity for the successful individual to operate in the unique and changing environment of a plc media business.

STV is Scotland’s home of news and entertainment, serving audiences with quality content on air, online and on demand. Through the execution of its diversification strategy, STV has successfully transformed into a digital-first media company with a high-growth streaming service and one of the UK’s leading production groups.

The role itself will involve a combination of statutory reporting, tax compliance and management accounting, as well as responsibility for testing key financial controls in line with the annual assurance plan. With regular interaction with senior members of the Finance and broader teams, it is a highly visible role, both within and outside the business, and would be best suited to a newly qualified Chartered Accountant looking for their first move into the commercial industry or a candidate already working in a similar capacity within industry.
