Group Reporting Accountant

Macias Consulting Pty Ltd

6 month contract in a fast paced group accounting function, leading the group's monthly reporting consolidations and process improvement.

  • Complex environment with tight deadlines
  • Opportunity to lead month end reporting on global level
  • Suits a personable technical accountant with group accounting expertise
Your 6 month assignment
With a near immediate start, you will be taking over monthly reporting at group level, consolidating a significant amount of entities from Australia and beyond.  You will be hands on in preparing timely and accurate business results with commentary for the executive team and ultimately the board.  You will also stay through half year reporting season in January/February.  Time permitting, you'll also be a part of technical accounting projects, implementing the new AASB standards 15, 16, specifically.  There is also talk of system enhancements, which you may be involved in.

Your new environment
You will enjoy working with well qualified, accomplished executives in an innovative industry leader with a truly global presence.  At HQ, you will enjoy a professional but not overly corporate culture, but certainly full of high performers that get things done and to a high standard.  You'll enjoy working in a high performance culture in an adult environment.  With a focus on continuous improvement, you'll be encouraged to share your ideas on making things faster, more efficient, improving accuracy and automating where possible.  

Your background/experience
You have experience with group consolidations for reasonably sized organisations, preferably in the listed space.  You quickly adapt to new systems and processes, and enjoy delivering timely and accurate financial information.  You enjoy group reporting as you get the eagle eye view of the whole company and take pride that your work gets seen by the c-suite and board every month.  You are reliable, numerate, and engaging - as you'll be in contact with accountants round the globe and communication is key to getting the information you require on time.  

How to secure this contract
This is an urgent requirement, as there is always another month end around the corner, please do not delay in responding.  Ideally, you can start within 1-2 weeks of appointment or immediately.  Please include a cover note (full letter not required), noting your specific group reporting expertise - such as number of entities consolidated previously and availability to start.  There is no closing date, we recruit until filled!  If this is you to a tee, you may also contact Eric Macias on 08 6141 3200 to register your interest.
