This private equity firm is high profiled and invests in emerging markets. We are working with our client to help build out their investment operations function from scratch requiring the expertise of an accomplished Head of Reconciliations.
Alongside working for a company which is making a real contribution & difference, it is also an exciting opportunity to build a dedicated Reconciliations function from the ground up. The role is both strategic and BAU offering the successful candidate to contribute to defining and shaping the strategy and recruitment of the Reconciliations team working closely with the Head of Operations.
Reconciliations Managers will ideally come from a manual reconciliations environment from a private equity firm, a private equity fund administrator or an asset management firm to be considered.
This is an exciting opportunity to build and recruit a new reconciliations team as well as create a centralised Reconciliations function by assuming responsibility for existing tasks and reconciliations processes currently performed by other business areas such as the Investment Teams, Finance and Treasury. There will also be opportunities to improve the reconciliation process through the review and automation of existing reconciliations and exception management therefore your Excel skills will be utilised.
Once established, the BAU team responsibilities will include ensuring accuracy of all investment positions, cash balances and transaction data held on internal and external systems. The team will also get involved in all aspects of the reconciliation process to include exception management, troubleshooting issues, recommending improvements to the reconciliation process and driving forward process enhancements.
To be considered candidates will have experience leading a Reconciliations team with previous private markets experience such as Private Equity Funds, Direct Equity, Direct Debt and Trade & Supply Chain Finance. In return, our clients offers a generous benefits package and a collaborative working environment.
