  • Apply sound judgment and provide recommendations to mitigate risks to support financial targets
  • Explain and execute the accounting standards, delegated authority matrix, and Experian policies and assess control risk as necessary.
  • Identify process standardisation and optimisation of reporting opportunities and deliver ways to simplify the finance processes to create informative, value-adding outputs
  • Work seamlessly with colleagues within or across functions and markets, supporting each other to meet business requirements
  • Respond to ad-hoc requests in a timely and professional manner
  • Continually identify process and reporting improvements that improve the quality of deliverables in the Statutory & Tax Reporting (STAR) function
