Finance Internship 2023 - 2024
The Finance Intern will join our Belfast Accounting team which consists of close to 20 individuals who provide financial support (to include Tax & Statutory accounting plus Accounts Payable) to EMEA & APAC entities within CME Group.
The team completes the financial reporting, provides management with information and insight to drive business performance, whilst also maintaining a satisfactory control environment that is Sarbanes-Oxley compliant. We manage the monthly accounting close process (ensuring all financial transactions are recorded correctly, including calculating and posting accruals and prepayments); we produce management and board reports to business heads and statutory entity boards, including commentary on variances to budget and to prior periods; and we prepare and submit financial reports to the regulators. The team also manages local engagement with the EMEA & APAC external audit teams, ensuring that all accounts are audited, approved and submitted to Companies House in line with statutory reporting requirements.
We perform all Accounts Payable activities for EMEA, processing invoices and paying suppliers in line with our documented control procedures and subject to business approval. We also reconcile Clearing House accounts for client held funds in Chicago Clearing Houses, ensuring that all balances are appropriately and accurately recorded.
