Company Details and Job Overview:

Kenton Black Finance are supporting a well-established and financially stable construction Group as they seek to appoint a career driven Management Accountant. Firmly rooted in their sector, they have achieved a continuous £10m profit each year for the last 10 years and as the Group continues to expand, they are now looking to strengthen their finance team with this piece of recruitment.

Achieving excellent staff retention levels, there are many longstanding members of staff within the organisation. This has been achieved through offering an excellent working environment in an inclusive team of like minded individuals as well as providing progressive roles for staff across all departments. As such, this Management Accountant opportunity offers fast-track advancement opportunities. In a balanced and all-encompassing role, you will have the opportunity to add value to the finance function and wider business through having key involvement in various improvement initiatives and projects, whilst maintaining a hands on remit in day to day accounting duties.

Your New Role as Management Accountant:

Working in a friendly team of 6-7 finance staff, you will report to an engaging Finance Director and as Management Accountant your duties will include the production of monthly management accounts, providing meaningful commentary and analysis; supporting with the year end close process; ensuring all legislative and regulatory requirements are met; maintenance of the company fixed asset register; developing and maintaining the bespoke financial system; overseeing transactional accounting processes including payroll and credit control.

Once established in your role, the Finance Director will ensure progression is available through taking management responsibility for 2-3 junior finance staff, and longer-term developing into a lead finance role for one of the Group’s key divisions.

There will also be some business facing and commercial involvement as you will also be a key player in a number of projects which will include driving improvements and efficiencies as well as supporting with growth plans and acquisition activity.

Experience & Qualifications Required to Apply:

Ideally, you will be CIMA/ACCA/ACA qualified although my client is welcoming applications from studiers or individuals who are qualified by experience, especially with construction/CIS knowledge although this is not essential. Staff supervisory/management experience is desirable, and you will be systems orientated with strong Excel skills and the ability to quickly pick up and adapt to new bespoke accounting systems.

Salary and Reward on Offer:

Alongside genuine career advancement opportunities you will benefit from a competitive starting salary and an impressive benefits package inclusive of a private pension, 25 days annual leave entitlement + bank holidays and early 3:30pm Friday finishes.
