Manager - Accountant - Major Projects Advisory

Location: London

Capability: Deal Advisory

Service line: Corporate Finance

Experience level: Manager

Employment type: Either Full Time Or Part Time



The Team

The Major Projects Advisory practice is a global practice within KPMG, working in USA, Australia, South Africa, India and the Middle East. The UK practice is well established with a team of circa 40 people who work mainly in the UK but also on overseas assignments. Our focus is on major infrastructure projects for public and private sector clients in the following sectors:

- Transportation
- Natural resources
- Power and utilities
- Oil, gas and process engineering
- Defence

This is a fast growing area offering exciting opportunities

The Role

This is an excellent opportunity for someone with the drive and aspiration to move outside of the traditional financial/accounting arena to develop a unique combined financial-commercial approach to the construction market.
The MPA team in the UK are based in Manchester and London. This role could be based in Manchester or London but will require frequent travel to client locations throughout the UK and occasionally overseas.

The role is for a Manager level Accountant with a good level of experience and understanding of the construction sector and in particular of the financial management of construction projects and construction companies.
Within the current team we have a lot of experience in the assessment of the commercial performance of portfolios of projects for construction clients. This role is designed to provide the financial accounting lens to our commercial findings to help clients understand the accounting impacts of our work and to provide construction related accounting advisory inputs to clients with major infrastructure projects. The successful candidate therefore needs a good understanding of how construction projects report, and of accounting for revenue and profits on contracts. The role will also work with CFOs to assist in understanding the causes of poor financial performance and to identify the commercial analysis required to improve operational performance, to drive margin improvement and cash management improvements.

The Person

The role requires significant post-qualification experience with the following attributes:

- Ability to quickly assess new situations and data to provide a basis for developing an understanding of the causative issues
- Set out a clear approach to tackling a new project issue in the most efficient manner
- Analytical approach to problem solving
- Capable of articulating effective solutions to project issues base on own knowledge and experience
- Clear, concise, fact-based report writing
- A willingness to work collaboratively with experienced MPA commercial staff

In addition to the above, experience or knowledge of some of the following areas would also be of benefit to the candidate in the environment that we work in:

- Internal or External Audit
- Forensic accounting
- Cash flow forecasting and management
- Some understanding of the principles of project management
- Some understanding of the operational processes within construction companies
- Some understanding of the issues that impact project performance
