GBB is busy creating the UK’s first bank dedicated to increasing the supply of development finance to underserved UK regions, starting in the North of England. GBB provides bespoke development finance to SME property developers and offer savings rates for the UK public. Approximately half of the government’s housebuilding target is currently being met and GBB intend on bridging that gap by supporting local businesses in the development sector.
Alongside availability of land and planning permission, access to finance is a key barrier for some smaller businesses. GBB is determined to be a powerful force in reversing these trends and making a tangible impact in Property Development in the UK.
GBB are strengthening their finance team with two crucial appointments, this Reporting Accountant position is one of them. The role will support the Reporting Manager in the development and production of accurate financial and prudential regulatory reporting. It will play an influential role in the setup and ongoing management of systems, controls, processes and reporting.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to be part of a fast growing business that is breaking new ground in the Banking / Property Development funding sector. You will play a key role in the build stage and be given the opportunity to contribute your own ideas in what will be a truly collaborative environment. You can expect this to be a highly satisfying position as you see the business grow and actively take part in its success.
The appropriate candidate is expected to be a Qualified Accountant (ACCA/ACA/CIMA) or equivalent. This could be a first move out of Practice, having worked with a Financial Services client base. Or you may already be working in the industry and ready to make a move.
This is an excellent opportunity for somebody looking for both a challenging and rewarding role. It requires a positive attitude, willingness to be hands-on and recognise the challenge that lies ahead. If you’re serious about a career development and contributing to the success of a fast growing business, this could be the opportunity for you.
