This is a great move if you are looking to take your accounting career to the next level by gaining large Company experience within a supportive team! 

The Warehouse Group (TWG) is a New Zealand success story, founded by Sir Stephen Tindall and evolved from a single The Warehouse store to become one of the largest retailing groups in New Zealand with $3 billion in sales. TWG consists of six core retail brands: The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Noel Leeming, Torpedo7, 1-day and TheMarket. We have 260+ retail stores, online stores as well as distribution centres throughout New Zealand. We also have two overseas sourcing offices located in China and India. We are a people-centred business with more than 12,000 team members across our locations.

The Role:

Reporting into our Financial Controller (but working closely with the Financial Accountants in the team) you’ll be working primarily on The Warehouse and Warehouse Stationery brands.

Your day-to-day will include:  

  • Entering transactions and source transactions across our core systems.
  • Managing high volumes of reconciliations, investigating and resolving unreconciled items.
  • Reconciling balance sheet accounts and movements in provision and accruals
  • Completing month end adjustments and support reporting

About You:

You'll be someone who thrives on a challenge with the proven ability to effectively handle a busy workload. There is a big element of problem solving in this role, so you’ll need to be someone who enjoys being able to get to the bottom of variances and prides themselves on producing high quality and accurate data.  We’re an ever-evolving environment so you’ll bring along a fresh set of eyes, a positive attitude and the ability to learn & adapt quickly.  

We're also looking for:

  • Proven experience within a high-volume Accounts position
  • Strong attention to detail and a passion for problem-solving
  • Intermediate to Advanced skills in Excel is a must
  • Customer service mind-set and excellent communication skills

About Us

Our Store Support Office has a beautiful North Shore location with views across the Waitemata Harbour, Tuff Crater reserve next door for lunchtime walks, an on-site café, and free charging stations for EV’s. With 1,200 people in the office, it is a hive of activity with likeminded people all working together to help kiwis live better every day.
