Job description

Charterhouse are currently supporting an international consultancy practice, whom within their Riyadh operation, are looking to source a Country Financial Accountant under Saudization. The Group Financial Accountant will take ownership across all areas of financial accounting for the KSA business whilst ensuring all financial statements are recorded in alignment with the regulatory requirements.

About this role

In conjunction, this Financial Accountant will prepare and oversee all VAT returns on a quarterly basis. With a reporting line to the Financial Controller, this Accountant shall also be expected to manage all areas of transactional accounting, across areas of accounts payable and receivable whilst also overseeing the reconciliation process along with the general ledger maintenance. The accountant shall also be required to support collections and any working capital, whilst also ensuring cashflow and work-in-progress reports, can be completed for reporting purposes.

This role’s responsibilities will also extend to the oversight and management of all the internal accounting and booking systems, to ensure both accurate data input and financial accounts preparation. This in turn, will extend to both audit oversight and compliance-based group reporting.

About you

Our client will look to recruit a professionally qualified Accountant (ACA, ACCA or SOCPA) with a demonstrable background, working within a professional services organisation, along with experience of undertaking a ‘hands-on’ operational finance and accounting-based position. The successful candidate shall be required to understand areas of Tax and regulatory matters within KSA along with an ability to act as a liaison-point with any external audit, compliance or banking-related partners.

The candidate shall ideally understand the concepts of working-capital, cashflow positions and MIS reporting, to allow for business partnering and group reporting. On top of this, applicants will be required to manage Excel, for analysis purposes, to a high level of proficiency whilst also being familiar with both in-house accounting systems and ERP platforms. The nature of this organisation will require a candidate, whom is well-versed across a broad range of finance functions, along with an ability to manage senior internal and external stakeholders. Under Saudization, our client is looking for an experienced financial accountant to join their team.
