At Lloyds Banking Group, we have a clear purpose; to help Britain prosper and to become the best bank for our customers. What we do makes a genuine difference to families, businesses and communities and we are playing a central role in creating a thriving UK economy. Finance is key to that success by securing and building the financial strength and performance of the Bank.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Investment Accounting team for an Investment Accounting Assistant Manager. Investment Accounting sits within the Operations and Investments team, part of Insurance Finance. Operations and Investments are a team of c200 people based across four locations: Bristol, Edinburgh, Leeds and London.

Operations and Investments are responsible for the operation and on-going development of the majority of the core operational processes within Insurance Finance. The Investment Accounting team is responsible for the financial data relating to the investments held in the Life, Pensions and Investments business, Scottish Widows. Investment Accounting are responsible for all the General Ledger interfaces and balances relating to Investments and also manage the Insurance Asset Data Warehouse, a data store used to hold detailed information relating to Investments.

Your key accountabilities will include:

  • Supporting Month-end and Quarter-end Group Reporting cycles for the Insurance Business;
  • Use of the Group's General Ledgers and Consolidation system GDRS;
  • Contributing to Regulatory Reporting for Investment Balances (Solvency II) on a quarterly basis;
  • Contributing to Analytical review of Investment Balance Sheet and P&L;
  • Posting journals relating to Investment Balances not captured correctly by source systems;
  • Reconciling outputs from the Asset Data Warehouse to the General Ledger;
  • Contributing to Balance Sheet reconciliations using the Group system Integrity.

You'll ideally be a qualified or part qualified accountant and/or studying for a professional finance qualification or have equivalent relevant experience. You must have a good understanding of accounting concepts, financial reporting and a practical experience of relevant financial systems and processes (SAP and Oracle and are the key finance systems). Strong Excel skills are a must. A background in the Financial Services industry is preferable. You can look forward to having a role that matters, working in an environment that provides continuous learning and development and a career that's full of opportunity.

Making you feel valued is important so we offer a highly competitive reward package - based on acting responsibly, and demonstrating our values and ethics. In addition to the salary range quoted this role offers an on target discretionary performance-related bonus, 4% of your salary paid to you in flex cash, 28 days holiday (plus bank holidays pro-rated), life assurance, private medical care, share schemes and contributory pension contributions as well as the option to use your flex cash to pick from a wide range of benefits including childcare vouchers, holiday trading, matched learning fund, dental plan, retail vouchers and a range of discounted financial and protection products.
