The ONE Group have partnered with an excellent global biotech company who are currently going through a really exciting period of growth. They are at late-stage clinical trials for two of their products and are looking for an accountant to join their growing UK team, with close ties to their US office and reporting directly into the Controller.

Our client is looking for someone who will come in and work really collaboratively with the existing tight-knit team, working closely alongside the Finance Manager supporting on various finance responsibilities and interacting with individuals of not only the finance team, but operations and R&D teams.

  • Month end processes alongside the FM

  • Analysis of R&D related prepayments and accruals
  • Reviewing contracts for accounting treatment
  • Personal expense coordination
  • Supporting with R&D TAX credit info
  • Audit support and annual statutory audit support
  • Supporting all AP processes when necessary


If you have significant experience with month end close, journal entries, accruals, reconciliations, AP processes and thorough VAT knowledge, and you are looking for the next challenge in your career then this is an excellent opportunity for you!


Our client is offering between £35,000 and £40,000 (dependent on experience), as well as an extensive benefits scheme, including: life insurance, private health care and a generous pension.
