Your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Monthly management and operational reporting for the group.
  • Preparation of sales reports and data analysis to support the group's three main divisions.
  • Consolidation of group results, including international entities and foreign currencies.

Driven by system improvements and best practice, you will have solid data analysis and management skills and excellent general computer literacy and be proficient in Excel and Xero (and/or a similar accounting package). You will have meticulous attention to detail and be technically astute across IFRS, statutory reporting and managing external audits.
