Framing the Bigger Picture
As a global business, every facet of our operations must be underpinned by financial excellence and integrity. Our Finance team reports on and manages all of the financial affairs of ICON, whether related to the service areas within operations, or corporate financial functions. The global finance function of ICON is part of its Global Business Service (GBS) organisation, and includes General Accounting, Financial Business Partnering, Corporate and Divisional Financial Planning and Analysis, Treasury, Tax, Credit, Internal Audit, and Procurement. The general accounting function incorporates Accounts Receivable, Fixed Assets, Accounts Payable, General Ledger, Consolidations, Payroll, amongst other functions.
ICON recruits financial staff and managers across all of the specialisms described above, and at all levels of experience. Usually, formal accounting training is required for roles in the general accounting functions, and, for more senior positions, the CPA or Chartered Accountant credential is mandatory. Positions within Financial Business Partnering will typically require a financial or accounting background, with an MBA or Chartered Management Accountant degree desirable.
ICON recruits financial professions for three central locations, in Dublin (Ireland), Chennai (India) and in North Wales (Philadelphia area), Pennsylvania. ICON’s size, breadth of service areas, and global footprint enable a financial professional to build a long-term career and experience a wide array of financial disciplines, service areas, financial management roles, projects and initiatives.
ICON provides excellent opportunities for its employees to develop both professionally and personally. We provide on-going training and pursue a philosophy of strong internal career progression. We underwrite formal continuing education at undergraduate and graduate levels. ICON Finance has developed a great culture and there is a very low turnover of staff due to the continual opportunities provided. Across all departments within ICON Finance, we are seeking professionals that want to grow, learn, be challenged, and advance. We will assist you with gaining your CFA, MBA, CPA, CMA or other relevant accreditations, which, when combined with an excellent work experience, will help you build a world-class career. Join us!
