Our client operates a successful business in the agricultural sector, and due to the impending retirement of a key staff member, they have an exciting new opening for an experienced Group Management Accountant to join their team.

If you are someone who likes to get in, roll your sleeves up, and make a positive contribution to the continued success of a business, a place in this family-owned and operated company could be just what you are looking for.

Core duties and responsibilities of the role include working with journals, fixed assets, aged debtors, GST processing, balance sheet reconciliation, and preparation of year-end tax returns for the external accountants. You will also get involved in reporting, budgets, and forecasting, plus a range of other functions to ensure the business operates at optimum efficiency.

• Strong knowledge of accounting programs
• Exceptional attention to detail and the ability to pick up on anomalies in data
• A down-to-earth, supportive team player who will do what it takes to get the job done
• Proven consistency in previous jobs and looking for a long-term career opportunity

Other important skills and attributes:

• Agile and open to change, including process improvements
• Excellent communication and relationship-building skills, and the ability to provide support and guidance to team members
