The Audit & Risk Recruitment Company (ARRC) are working with a FTSE 100 business to help them to hire a Financial Controls and Compliance Specialist. Our client is undertaking wide-scale transformation of its Finance function involving a programme to implement US SOX. This role will sit within core Finance but will be focussed on readying the business for UK SOX or SOX-lite, collaborating closely with business partners at all levels of seniority.


Reporting to the Head of Financial Reporting, you will support the business with meeting its compliance requirements for ICFR. You will work with stakeholders across Finance to implement financial reporting control standards and deliver training on these standards. Utilising your understanding of financial controls, you will assess the impacts of change in relation to business processes and financial compliance and identify opportunities for improvement, particularly in relation to UK SOX. You will undertake reviews, self-assessments and testing of financial controls from a risk-based perspective. You will also support the external audit process.


Our client is hoping to find an ACA/ACCA qualified audit or advisory professional with experience of working within a SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley) framework and environment. They will expect you to have excellent organisational skills, communication, and presentation skills. Experience in a Big 4 or top 10 accountancy practice will be highly regarded.
