Job title: Financial Accountant

Location: Dublin

Overview of the role:

We are looking to expand our finance team to help continue to grow and support the International Division of the Flutter Entertainment group and allow the team to take on new challenges.

Being a listed public company (currently NYSE and FTSE) can be challenging. That’s why our Finance team holds itself at the cutting edge of all the major functional disciplines, never standing still and continually innovating. Our teams are actively engaged in a diverse range of activities which include; Financial Reporting, Group Accounting, Management Accounting, FP&A, Treasury, Transaction Processing, Financial Systems & Projects, Commercial Finance & Business Partnering, Corporate Development and Investor Relations.

Imagine how being part of such a diverse yet agile team could provide you with unique opportunities to build out your skill set, and to do so all within the same organisation!

Our largest finance teams are... located in Dublin, London and the Isle of Man, with distinct Finance teams supporting our main businesses and operating units located across three continents in the US, Europe, and Australia. This in itself creates the opportunity to move geographically within the Group or to get involved in cross-location and international assignments.

Learning is at the core of our culture. No matter how experienced you may be, our Finance team can offer you a rich environment for growth and development with an opportunity to learn from some of the best people in their fields. We support all the major accountancy bodies; ACA, ACCA, CIMA, and have successfully supported many students through their professional training qualifications. We also offer a rich curriculum of in-house and external learning which covers technical competencies and a broad range of ‘softer’ skills, such as personal impact, negotiation tactics, and building-resilience, to name just a few. This carefully crafted combination helps to create well rounded skill-sets within our team – creating the Finance professional demanded for today and for tomorrow.

Underpinned by state-of-the-art technology, for which we were the architects, engineers and implementation team, we continually drive operational improvements and efficiencies in everything we deliver - if you enjoy setting new standards in Finance then you’ve come to the right place.

Join us and become part of a highly experienced and highly driven Finance community, with big ambition and bigger influence, operating at pace within the largest Gaming Group in the world.
