Job Description

Company Details and Job Overview:

A medium sized service Group in Preston require a Management Accountant to join the finance function within one of their key divisions. This is an ideal opportunity for a CIMA/ACCA/ACA studier or finalist to gain hands on exposure across the entire finance spectrum to complement their studies. This could be an excellent springboard opportunity as this role is expected to grow into a more senior position in the short to medium term. Therefore my client is looking to appoint a career driven and ambitious individual with aspirations to progress within their role.

Your New Role as Management Accountant:

With full support and guidance from the Financial Controller, as Management Accountant you will be heavily involved in the production of the management accounts pack for the business unit and you will have some input to Group level reporting and consolidation. You will also be required to provide financial support including ad hoc analysis and reports to various stakeholders within the Group to aid effective business decisions.

Alongside routine financial duties, you will be a key player in several upcoming projects – the business are in early stages of implementing a new ERP system and there are ongoing projects relating to process improvements and efficiencies where your input will be valued.

Experience & Qualifications Required to Apply:

Although not essential, part or full CIMA/ACCA/ACA qualification is desired and a full study package will be available for the successful candidate if required. Strong IT skills are essential, particularly good working knowledge of Excel as you will be required to handle large data volumes. Good communication skills are imperative as you will adopt a Business Partnering capacity and will often be required to communicate key financial findings to a variety of stakeholders at all levels.

Salary and Reward on Offer:

Alongside a competitive salary which will appropriately reflect your level of experience and qualification, you will receive an attractive benefits package inclusive of a comprehensive study package for CIMA or ACCA if required; discretionary bonus schemes; 25 days annual leave entitlement (+ bank holidays); health plans; and cycle to work scheme.
