Job Description

Management Accountant | £35,000 - £45,000 | Newark-on-Trent | Global Business

If you're bored of your current role, aren't being given any interesting work and feel like you can do better, how does a role with exposure to projects, system implementation and business change with one of the UKs leading businesses sound?

A leading global manufacturing business are looking to recruit a Management Accountant to be based at their site in Newark-on-Trent. With turnover exceeding £2bn globally and a focus on innovation, this is a really exciting time to join the Finance team as they begin their 4-5 year growth plan. Not only will you build onto your existing experience, you'll see areas of Finance that you may have never seen before. As the business prepares for a global ERP implementation, you'll not just play a part in it, but work with and be guided and supported by senior leaders with decades of experience in business change and implementation projects. On top of that, the growth opportunities for you could be huge - as the business goes through this period of change, there'll be loads of chance for you to progress up the ladder.

What's the role?

Stripping it back, you'll be responsible for processing day-to-day accounting, closing journals, intercompany transactions, reporting and any other related areas that may need your support and expertise. With the upcoming ERP implementation, projects will come up that you can get stuck into and there will be areas where you are asked to provide support as they move through the various stages.

Key Responsibilities:

  • General Accounting: Prepare and post approved journal entries, maintain a master list of monthly journal entries, and record and adjust accruals/ deferrals.
  • Cost / Inventory Accounting: Perform inventory valuation and accounting, variance analysis, and reconciliation of system-based transactions to inventory ledgers/reports.
  • Fixed Asset Accounting: Manage accounting for all fixed asset activities, including depreciation and asset retirement, and generate fixed asset reports.
  • Intercompany Transactions: Prepare and reconcile intercompany invoices and transactions, ensuring timely resolution of open items.
  • Period End Close: Conduct ledger and sub-ledger reconciliations, perform account reconciliations, and create required financial reports for period-end close activities.
  • Audit Support: Provide necessary documentation and support for internal and external audits.
  • Query Resolution: Resolve queries from internal stakeholders and escalate issues as required.
  • Communication and Change Management: Support team members, identify continuous improvement opportunities, and engage with key stakeholders on updates and challenges.

What are we looking for?

  • Qualifications: At least AAT Level 4 Qualified or QBE (Qualified by Experience).
  • Experience: Previous experience in a fast-paced industry such as FMCG, manufacturing, or wholesale.
  • Skills: Proficiency in Microsoft Excel, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and a proactive, detail-oriented approach.
  • Desirable: Experience with SAP is advantageous but not essential.

What's in it for you?

  • Salary of £35,000 - £45,000 per year
  • Up to 10% Bonus
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Hybrid Working (2 days WFH per week)
  • A supportive team culture with huge opportunity for growth and development
