Accountancy and Finance
The Accountancy & Finance division is one of the largest and longest established teams at Morgan McKinley and comprises of three dinstinct teams:
- Senior Finance
- Core Finance
- Asset Management Finance
The Senior Finance division provides permanent, temporary and interim recruitment solutions to the leading names in investment banking, retail banking and financial services. When a client requires a qualified finance professional (ACA, ACCA, ACMA, CPA, MBA, CFA) with post-qualified experience in the front, middle or back office, we deliver.
Our consultants, backed by a resourceful research function, have an average of five years’ financial recruitment experience and are all trained in banking and financial services. Our approach promotes knowledge sharing, corporate partnering and swift issues resolution. This has forged longstanding relationships with the key players in our marketplace to the extent that many of our original candidates are now the decision makers, and also now our clients.
We focus on senior positions ranging from manager to senior director level and as such, typical permanent base salaries are between £60,000 and £130,000+. For temporary roles, this equates to £300 to £900 per day. Senior finance jobs run across many functions, including:
- Audit/Financial Operational Risk
- Cost Management and Efficiency Reporting
- Financial Control
- Financial Planning and Analysis
- Management Reporting and Performance Management
- Product Control
- Project Management/Business Analysis
