About the Job

Our client is looking for a talented Finance Manager with considerable experience in a ‘project finance’ environment to join the team. In operation for 22 years, this importing and distribution business continues to evolve with a new recreation division making inroads nationally and the well-established agri business moving into offshore markets.

A sound technical accounting skillset is critically important to this role. You must be experienced with the core responsibilities of:

  • Budgeting and cashflow
  • Financial reporting analysis and recommendations to the leadership team
  • Stock and inventory control
  • Trade finance (FOREX)
  • Work in progress management
  • Payroll and project accounting – back costings

Additionally, this role will require you to coach and motivate a small finance team, develop sound working relationships with all key business leaders and bring a strong values-based skillset to your work. Therefore, your people skills must be well-developed and something you are naturally proud of.

About the Business

The business fosters a collaborative working environment and champions continuous improvement. They also operate as much as possible with their values at the heart of everything they do – it says a lot about their culture and ethics. If you consider yourself to be innovation orientated, work with passion, and integrity, and value teamwork then you’d fit in well here!

About You

This role demands someone with sound decision making ability and the desire to drive improvement across broader business processes, particularly wearing the ‘finance hat’. A strong technology and systems understanding, particularly in ERP systems (NetSuite or other) is also important; this role is typically the company’s master user.

It is an interesting time to join the business and if you are someone that can impact their success, we would love to hear from you!
