Interim Operations Accountant

Posted 2 February by Sharp Consultancy Easy Apply Ended
A highly successful and stable manufacturing business are working exclusively with Sharp Consultancy to secure a personable but strong Accountant to cover an initial 6 month contract. The business, which has a low staff turnover due to its welcoming and relaxing environment and calm leadership, needs someone in tune with the operational side of manufacturing. The role itself is a wide mixture of accounting and operational analysis and partnering and as such, manufacturing (or similar industry experience) is required.

You must be pro active and enthusiastic with a continuous improvement mind set. Although there is an element of periodic routine work to satisfy month end reporting, this is also very much a varied role which will support various sub projects within the business.
Due to this being a dynamic company and supporting a very visible area of the business, you must be a good communicator with both finance and none finance staff. The role is very much operational and would suit a candidate that recognises the importance of implementing robust financial controls for accurate and timely management financial reporting to budget holders, while also recognising that the route of these results stems from the individual end users and the daily transactions they post. As such, you will be expected to work with shop floor manufacturing staff and branch administrators to advise and support them.

Standard costing and stock experience would be beneficial, if not quite essential, but most of all a propensity to get stuck into exactly how the business operates is absolutely key. This is a 6 month contract in the initial stages, and a start date would ideally be in the next month. This is a great business to work for and regardless of outcome would add a fantastic 6 month project onto any candidate's CV.

Candidates must be eligible to work in the UK full time without restriction. To apply please send your CV, quoting our reference and specifying which website you saw this position advertised on. Due to the high volume of applications we receive it is not always possible to respond to unsuccessful applicants. Therefore if we have not responded to your application within seven days please note that on this occasion your application has not been successful.
