Working with Prudential as a Financial Reporting Accountant means becoming part of a brand with a global reputation, a remarkable history and exciting plans for the future. If you're inspired to join us, and if you have the necessary qualities, then this could be the opportunity you've been looking for.

At Prudential we're absolutely focused on getting the best outcomes for customers. Ours is one of the most profitable and trusted names in life and pensions, and we lead the market in a number of pension products. Across the world, we look after £635 billion in savings and investments for 24 million customers (as at June 2017).

This is a varied role that encompasses all aspects of external reporting for the Group and includes IFRS, EEV (embedded value) and other regulatory reporting, together with some involvement in other finance projects. The role will involve taking ownership of the end-to-end process of financial reporting of the Group financial statements and entails calculation, consolidation and preparation of disclosures, and analysis of the data. It also includes elements of process improvements through identifying opportunities to streamline existing processes and leverage on reporting systems,

Applicants should be a qualified Chartered, CIMA or ACCA Accountant with previous experience within a Reporting role. They will;

  • Be comfortable with using complex IT systems and large data volumes;
  • Have a good knowledge of IFRS
  • Be an organised self-starter able to work to tight deadlines and under pressure
  • Be familiar with the preparation and consolidation of financial accounts with experience of using complex finance systems
  • Have good attention to detail and the ability to explain complex situations to others.

Experience of EEV and Capital metrics reporting (or other financial services regulatory work) is an advantage, as is Life insurance experience or a knowledge of investment products and markets.

This contract will initially run until end of March 2020.

People who work at Prudential agree that ours is a great place to work with a brilliant team spirit. It's also an innovative, high-performing commercial environment that's totally focused on customers. And in a fast-changing world, you'll join an organisation that's leading the way in helping customers achieve their long-term financial goals
