As a pivotal player in the finance team, you'll immerse yourself in the day-to-day financial operations, meticulously preparing month-end accounts and weekly contribution forecasts.

What are we looking for?

  • You have a solid accounting background (3-5 years), preferably in a manufacturing background.
  • You may be QBE, but qualified or part-qualified ACCA/ CIMA/ ACA is preferred.
  • Excellent working knowledge of Microsoft Office, especially Excel.
  • As part of the upcoming ERP implementation, experience in Microsoft Dynamics365 would be preferred and beneficial but is by no means essential.
  • You should have exceptional attention to detail, be able to prioritise effectively, and demonstrate strong communication skills across all levels.

What's in it for you?

  • Salary of £38,000 - £42,000 (depending on experience)
  • Hybrid Working (following completion of probation)
  • A chance to grow with a leader in the food manufacturing, where your contributions will be recognised and rewarded.
