A Little Bit About the Company

This international privately-owned business has been around for over a century and over 50 years in New Zealand. They are a solid and stable business with operations around the country. The beauty is that while the overseas owner is there for support, they pretty much leave the NZ business to do their own thing and get on with it.
  
Some More Information About the Role

Things tick over pretty smoothly each month but this role is here to inject some innovation into the way things are done from a finance perspective and install some new systems and tools for the business.
  
Reporting to the CFO, this role will be able to have an impact on tangible outcomes. There are regular month-end type duties supporting the Finance Manager but there will be a lot of project work which you will own. One example is an AP scanning project.
  
Some of the key responsibilities of the role include:
  • Ensure systems are stable, reliable and able to be reconciled
  • Train and assist users on systems
  • Develop systems to meet the needs of the business
  • Support the finance team to complete financial reporting
  • Provide backup in areas such as payroll, AP, AR and accounting when needed
  • Assist in forecasting
  • Partner across the business to add value and enable the business
  • Process improvement
  • Support the IT Administrator in project development
So Who Are You, And What Is Your Profile?

This role suits someone with a solid grounding in accounting with a strong interest in and ideally a background in systems type projects. A CA qualification is preferred. The plan is for this role to step into the Finance Manager role in the next year or two so future leadership qualities are something we?re keeping an eye out for.
  
The finance team is a relatively small one, so it is important that whoever joins the team is willing to be a backup for all members when needed and not be precious about it. There is a strong project element to this role meaning that the ability to work autonomously and solve problems and liaise with people across the business is key. The ability to learn is another key attribute we?re looking for.
