Job Description Summary
Lloyds Banking Group is the UK's largest Digital, Retail and Commercial Bank with a focus on Helping Britain Prosper. Our Finance teams sit at the heart of the organisation. Group Finance Support (GFS) is a team of c600 colleagues within the Finance Division (c2600) with responsibility for the core platforms, processes, financial reporting and controls for Finance. It also supports Finance through provision of Divisional responsibilities, People & Culture initiatives, Systems & Data capabilities and Strategy development.

We're looking for a motivated individual to join the Accounting Systems - Integration & Interfaces team. The core purpose of the role is to support the month end processing on MABE4 and FDPP but also a wider Accounting Systems role managing the communication & escalation around system and overnight process issues as they arise, whilst also ensuring effective governance of key Finance systems managed within Accounting Systems.

The role requires a good finance systems background, with knowledge around source system integration into the ledger an advantage. Accounting experience preferable but not crucial. The ability to think wider than individual operational processes. Your ability to provide thoughtful challenge and ideas for improvement is key to the role, as is your ability to prioritise with clear and effective communication skills. You'll have a good understanding of the need for effective risk governance and will be able to work effectively within a team, collaborating with a wide range of teams within GFS and beyond to help support the protection of BAU processes.

This is an exciting and varied role, which will enable you to thrive in a supportive, diverse & dynamic team with prospects to really develop your capabilities and career.

Some out of hour's work is required, for example where the month end falls on a weekend/bank holiday. This is a challenging and varied role, which will enable you to thrive in a supportive and inclusive team with prospects to develop a wide range of skills and capabilities.

This role is based in Group Finance Support's Bristol hub.
