Assistant Accountant

Key responsibilities include: 

A brand new role has been created for an Assistant Accountant at a very well established manufacturing company based in Worsley. This role will suit an individual who is looking for a very ‘hands on’ position, who wants to get involved in everything accounts related. You will become the crucial support to the Finance Manager who will in time release more and more responsibilities that will help broaden your experience.

This is a newly created position due to growth and increased reporting.

The role can be tailored somewhat towards the applicant’s strengths and will develop over time

Management reporting has increased considerably, both monthly and quarterly and very tight deadlines are set for management information.

This employee will be required to assist the Finance Manager with all management accounting, reconciling ledgers and checking the work of other department personnel.

The role will also include job-costing and allocation, preparing reports, budgets and forecasts.

There will be a period of 2-3 months where the work will also be ‘transactional’ to get used to the systems and controls that are in place.

This is an ideal position for someone aspiring to accounts management level in industry. The company is diverse in the available experiences, involving engineering manufacture, global trade and global engineer travel, foreign currency, inventory and worldwide shipments. Not many accounts departments are this varied and offer this opportunity.

During the coming months the company is also transitioning from Sage Line 50 to SAP, and implementing a new kiosk style job costing system. These systems will be implemented largely by the finance function. Therefore, having Sage but more importantly SAP experience would be hugely beneficial. Also having worked in manufacturing/engineering would also be an advantage. You will be an individual looking to challenge yourself and have plenty of get up and go. This role will be extremely varied so will suit someone who is currently getting frustrated about the lack of exposure they are getting to accounting. If this role sounds of interest, please do not hesitate to apply immediately.
