Financial Reporting Assistant Manager - Flexible Working Available
At Lloyds Banking Group, we have a clear purpose; to help Britain prosper and to become the best bank for our customers. What we do makes a genuine difference to families, businesses and communities and we're playing a central role in crafting a growing UK economy. Finance is key to that success by securing and building the financial strength and performance of the Bank.
You'll be joining the Finance Reporting team, within our Financial Management function. As the Assistant Manager, you'll be providing technical support and assistance to the business. You'll have the autonomy to make decisions within your area of expertise and also plenty of support from your peers and senior colleagues when more complex queries arise.
You'll be based in our Bristol office but we pride ourselves on our agile working culture - so you may be liaising with your business customers remotely via video, spending time face to face with your manager in Bristol, or occasionally travelling for a team meeting in one of our other hub locations.

You'll be supported to take the next career step and develop expertise in Financial Reporting
What would you get involved with?
As well as the monthly and ad hoc reporting activities you'd expect, there'll also be opportunities to get involved with continuous improvement initiatives. This may encompass delivering on small projects, or leading on specific elements of larger projects. Either way, your contribution will effectively improve the support the team provides to the business.
Your specific accountabilities will also include:
- Monitoring and supporting a range of processes and systems, to ensure they are effectively maintained and coordinated
- Looking for opportunities to make improvements to how we do things, making recommendations and supporting implementation activity
- Establishing and building relationships with your internal customers, to identify business requirements
- Providing support and guidance to help the business achieve its goals, whilst also ensuring activity complies to internal governance and external regulatory requirements
You'll likely be a graduate in a numerical discipline. And hold a professional accountancy qualification (ACCA or equivalent) or you've acquired the same level of expertise, through significant work experience in a Finance function.
You'll relish the opportunity to build on your existing experience, whilst already being familiar with Financial Reporting requirements.
Alongside your technical ability, your relationship building and management skills will be at the forefront of your contribution. You'll have well-honed engagement skills and the ability to communicate and influence others. You'll use these skills to liaise effectively with senior colleagues and be confident in responding to challenges or questions.
What skills and experience can you bring to the role?
- Strong excel and analytical skills.
- Pro-active, self-starter, ability to work independently or as part of a wider team
- Experience of Oracle and SAP ledger systems would also be beneficial.
And in return?

- Discretionary Performance Share Award
- Generous pension contribution
- A flex benefits cash pot you can adjust to suit your lifestyle (4% on top of your basic salary)
- Private health cover
- Share schemes
