A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Group Management Accountant who is hungry to learn and progress their career under the mentorship of an experienced Finance Director.
This is a unique opportunity to join a company driving high levels of growth organically and through strategic acquisition. It offers the chance to gain much sought after experience scaling and evolving the finance function to meet the demands of the business.
Based in Gateshead, the offices exude the fast-paced and changing environment that they live and breathe daily.
With the purpose to unlock potential and improve outcomes for individuals and organisations by removing barriers to learning in education and creating opportunities in employment and life, this is a technology operation that specialises in services that deliver genuine social change and leave a societal legacy as a result of the positive impact they have on people’s lives.
Being part of such an organisation will undoubtedly bring a high amount of reward and job satisfaction and is very much at the heart of what the team truly care about and are driven by.
The role is well suited to someone who enjoys being in a challenging environment, where their organisational skills play a vital part in prioritising workload when there are several competing priorities.
The Group Management Accountant position offers an excellent opportunity for those willing to invest in their career, as the experience and insights gained helping to successfully drive a high-growth SME forward has the ability to catapult your own progression.
Autonomy is actively encouraged to develop the financial processes across the business so they are efficient and scalable. That is why the successful candidate will be someone who has the vision to see how changes implemented today will benefit tomorrow.
Responsible for leading the production of the management accounts through to group consolidation (including balance sheet reconciliations), you will look after the continual development of management information, developing a strong understanding of business drivers and using this knowledge to influence operational performance.
A hugely rewarding aspect to the role is supporting the Head of Finance and developing the team, both with a view to enhancing performance and shaping colleagues’ careers. Using your finance experience, you will be expected to coach the team to improve their practices and processes, while also supporting them to achieve their career development ambitions.
As such, we are looking for a Qualified Accountant (ACA/CA/ACCA/CIMA) and a critical thinker with a curious mind who looks at the numbers differently, questions, challenges and doesn’t make assumptions. You need to be able to come up with ideas and solutions, and regularly adapt to change. We are looking for a “rising star”.
With a number of businesses in the Group all playing their specialist part to deliver the company objective, this is a business that is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and welcomes applications from all.
The business actively supports staff development and provide monthly learning and development workshops that have a fun element to them. They also run a leadership programme to support the management team and grow the leaders in the business.
A comprehensive benefits package is provided to all employees, alongside a strong company-wide focus on wellbeing to ensure a healthy working life. The opportunity goes past just salary alone and is about the wider reward you receive in the progression of your career and being part of a passionate team on a journey to help the community.
