Rutherford Cross Retained by The Golden Charter Trust to Appoint a Senior Accountant

Rutherford Cross is delighted to be working with The Golden Charter Trust to appoint a Senior Accountant to their close-knit, high-calibre team. This role is best suited to a part-qualified accountant looking to complete their professional qualification, with experience in management accounts and who has strong analytical and interpersonal skills.

This an exciting time to join the Trust, as they have recently brought the maintenance of their accounting ledgers and records in-house utilising SAGE Intacct as their accounting package. Reporting into the Finance Manager, the role will have a varied scope and will be a highly visible role with interaction with Trustees, stakeholders, the trading company and suppliers.

This role is key to the financial operations of the Trust and is responsible for operating the end-to-end preparation and delivery of high-quality financial reporting output. Specifically, the post holder will maintain the general ledger, operate the accounts payables and treasury processes and produce draft management accounts pack and supplementary analysis. Additionally, the Senior Accountant will support the Finance Manager in the year-end audit and statutory accounting processes, the review of tax returns, and other regulatory reporting requirements.

Being part of a small team, it is important the appointed candidate is reliable and willing to be flexible to cover other duties that support the financial and wider management and administration of the Trust when required. What comes with that is the opportunity to develop and grow in an environment that offers stewardship from senior members of the team. This role offers a high level of autonomy and ownership of aspects of the finance function. The post holder will be a “super user” for the accounting system and take ownership of developing the functionality, reporting suite and user knowledge in the team. They will support team members to ensure the software is working effectively.

The role is based in Bearsden and the position will be hybrid, allowing the post holder to work from home at times depending on business requirements.
