Leadership Opportunity

As the Financial Accountant in this large, fast paced organisation, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring high quality and efficient financial management and advice.  With a team of up to five direct reports, you’ll coach and mentor your own team, and other non-financial people within the organisation.  The industry is complex, and provides ongoing challenges for a proactive and forward-thinking finance team.

We are ideally seeking interest from people with the following experience and attributes:

  • Strong financial accounting experience (IFRS)
  • Knowledge of payroll legislation
  • CA qualification
  • Proven leadership with a focus on culture and performance
  • High level problem solving capability
  • Interpersonal skills that impress
  • The ability to engage effectively with non-financial employees
  • Project and/or business transformation experience
  • A passion for continuous improvement and positive change

Your key responsibilities will be varied, but focused primarily on the areas of:

  • Leading, coaching and developing a team of high performing individuals
  • Financial management including reports, budgets, and forecasts
  • Preparing annual statements
  • Leading and/or participating in process/system transformation
  • Overseeing the payroll function
  • Reviewing work completed by your team
  • Ensuring alignment with the organisation’s purpose and vision

You may be ready for your next leadership role, or you may have informally been leading a team, and are ready to step up to a formal leadership position.  If you are a natural leader, who isn’t afraid of challenging the status quo in a way that takes people on a journey, then this role is well worth considering.

An attractive salary will be offered to the successful applicant.  If you are keen to know more or would like to request a position description, please email Judy at
