Management Accountant – with particular focus on factory / operations
(Interim support during system upgrade)
Contract term 9 months (potential for role to be made permanent)
This is a hybrid role providing additional support in finance during our business system upgrade to Business Central. The role will help embed the system change and ensure finance processes are efficient, robust controls are in operation and the new technology & functionality is properly utilised. The candidate will also support day to day finance tasks relating to month-end and year end and have a particular focus on stock and factory accounting. The period covered by the role includes both the annual budget process and year-end and is therefore expected to provide finance support in these areas too.
The role will report to the Finance Director but also provide backup for the Financial Controller who is project managing the system change.
The System upgrade has moved the business from Sage (finance ledgers only) to Business Central where we have successfully implemented Phase 1 (the finance ledgers). There are two further phases, Manufacturing and Factory Planning, which are due to be complete by the end of the year. The system upgrade changes the way in which we work and many of these processes need to be re-established and embedded.
This is an exciting opportunity to help shape how we maximise the use of the new system and build insightful reporting.
At the same time we are continually improving the Business Intelligence (BI) tool which integrates with Business Central and enables us to build insightful real-time reporting, maximising the benefits of the new system.
The successful candidate will be a key member of the finance team and will be able to work effectively within this team as well as quickly develop strong and mutually supportive relationships with the relevant business areas (in-particular finance and operations).
Factory accounting will include:
