Finance Executive

RemoteUK, Liverpool

Vast Visibility specializes in technology that powers Insurance Price Comparison Websites, working with almost all of the major UK Price Comparison brands. Our business is run from our waterfront office in Liverpool, which is where the role is based. We also help support fellow companies in Leeds, Jersey, and even Romania – so there are plenty of finance quirks to get involved in! We are a part of the Howden Broking Group, one of the world’s largest insurance groups.

Our modern, friendly, open plan office is home to our 30 UK employees and two dogs. We are currently operating a hybrid model of working, allowing our employees flexibility around where and when they work. We have a great history of team building and social events and are looking forward to being able to do these again when the situation allows.

This is a great opportunity for the successful applicant to really make the role their own whilst receiving a thorough handover and transition. System or task-related training will be available if required with ongoing support to develop their skillset.

You will be given the chance to truly understand the meaning behind the numbers and have interaction across the whole business and group.

So have a look below and if you feel you fit the descriptions, let us have a chat!

๐Ÿง™ What you’ll do

  • The role is all-encompassing covering day-to-day accounting, monthly management accounts, financial statements, and as the company grows there will be opportunities to get involved in an array of other activities and projects as they arise.
  • We are working hard to automate day-to-day work as much as possible. We want the successful candidate to own these processes, ensuring the systems are set up correctly, maintained, and that our staff follows the procedures in place.
  • We want to understand the numbers and for you to do this successfully it will involve interaction with all the teams around the business to gain an understanding of what is going on.
  • You will be helping prepare the monthly management accounts for the group and will have responsibility for some of the individual entities’ accounts, working with the product owners to ensure the accuracy of the reported figures. Additionally, you will also help review and analyze these results so that we can produce the necessary reporting for the business which will help senior management make the correct decisions.
  • There are also traditional finance tasks such as our annual financial audit where you will play a key part in providing any requested information such as supporting evidence, documentation, or explaining our controls. We are currently working on a 2-month turnaround between the year-end and the signing of statements, so itโ€™s quite a fast turnaround.

 

๐Ÿง™ Who you are

  • You will have experience of working in a finance department โ€“ you could be part qualified, fully qualified, or qualified by experience.
  • You will be organized when dealing with multiple priorities, completing tasks in a logical way.
  • You will remain calm under pressure when we complete our quick month and year-end turnarounds.
  • You are curious โ€“ you could simply follow a process, but you would rather understand how the business works and why you are doing the process.
  • You will be able to communicate with anyone in the business in both financial and non-financial ways. People enjoy their interactions with you โ€“ balancing being friendly and being professional.
  • You will have pride in the work you do paying close attention to the detail required. You get a good sense of satisfaction from helping your colleagues with financial support, closing down the month-end, and getting good feedback from the auditors.
