This is a fantastic role for a qualified auditor seeking a first or second move.

King's College London is one of the top 10 UK universities in the world (QS World University Rankings, 2018/19), and is also one of England’s oldest and most prestigious institutions. King's has an outstanding reputation for world-class teaching and cutting-edge research.

Having recently implemented a new finance system, King’s College London (KCL) are looking to recruit a recently qualified accountant (CCAB or equivalent) into the role of Deputy Financial Accountant to work with the Financial Accountant in implementing a new financial control environment to make best use of this system.
