A leading Australian bank, our client maintains a dominant position in retail, commercial and corporate banking, financial markets, wealth management services and investment banking.

An excellent opportunity now exists for a motivated finance professional to join the Group Finance team in a role focussing on research and the provision of advice relating to the Group's accounting policies and procedures. In addition to involvement in a varying number of ongoing projects such as the implementation of International Financial Reporting Standards your specific responsibilities will include, but not be limited to, providing advice in relation to new products and structured transactions, supporting the preparation of the Group's US GAAP disclosures and assisting the external reporting cycle.

Ideally you will be CA/CPA qualified and have at least 2 years post qualification experience gained within the finance or audit area of a bank or the banking audit division of a major chartered accounting firm.
