  • Joint responsibility for the management of the annual budgeting process
  • Drive business improvement utilising business intelligence tools
  • Provide performance monitoring and reporting
  • Work effectively with internal and external stakeholders including auditors.

About You:
You will be an engaging professional individual with a strategic commercial approach to your work but also prepared to be hands on, and in the trenches with your team when required.

You must have the following skills/experience:
  • Professional accounting qualifications (CA/CPA/CIMA)
  • Significant New Zealand experience at a senior level in financial and management accounting within a commercial environment
  • Lead and managed a transactional finance team
  • A commercially savvy individual who can work at pace and push back when required
  • Demonstrated experience in stakeholder engagement, communication, and presentation skills
