About Us

Would it inspire you to see the tangible impact of your work on the world? To work for a company that is committed to making a positive difference for people everywhere? If so, we could be the organisation for you. We are the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), a global professional membership organisation. We are at the heart of a management career in construction.


We are the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership. Our members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment. We are tasked with promoting good practice within our industry to improve the quality of life for everyone.


About the Role

Here at the CIOB, we are now looking for a Financial Accountant to support the Financial Controller in planning and co-ordinating monthly, quarterly and annual financial activities to ensure the timely delivery of the audited financial statements to the Audit and Risk Committee each year. With line management responsibility of two members of staff, you will ensure good balance sheet control is kept through monthly reconciliations and investigations, manage the procure to pay process and take responsibility for the administration of VAT, Corporation Tax and Treasury Management. As our Financial Accountant, you will also be responsible for the financial administration of UK and International payroll and pensions and for ensuring systems, procedures and process changes are made as and when necessary to enable changes in reporting requirements.


What we’re looking for…

Are you working towards CIMA, ACCA or an equivalent accountancy qualification? Do you have demonstrable experience in an accounting environment? If so, we want to hear from you!


With excellent time management and communication skills, you will have the ability to prioritise and work under pressure and be competent in the preparation of statutory accounts with NFP being desirable. With good data analysis skills and competence in Microsoft Excel (pivot tables, look ups etc.), you will have VAT experience (partial exemption knowledge is desirable) and experience of multi-company or a multi-currency environment.


What you might be asking is – why work for us?

In a nutshell, because we can offer you a really friendly, flexible and welcoming working environment, and we’ll show you that we’re committed to your personal wellbeing and to your development within your role. We’ll offer you a fantastic range of benefits – from access to a great pension scheme through to a variety of health and wellbeing schemes; and we’ll make sure that you’re constantly learning throughout your time with us. We even hold a Silver Investors in People Award – which we really hope will show you our commitment to this.


No two days will be the same in this exciting position, so if you thrive in an ever changing environment and love to get your teeth into a real challenge then this could be the role for you!
