The Management Accountant is a specialist role responsible for providing financial advice, information and analysis to help managers in business groups make timely and informed financial decisions, manage financial performance and be accountable for public funds.

The role focuses on delivering effective customer service, financial planning, evaluating financial performance and providing insight, improving financial controls and transactions, developing financial capability of managers in business groups, and assisting the Finance Manager to develop consolidated business group financial information.

The Management Accountant is the first point of contact for financial leadership and expertise for Group and Responsibility Centre managers within a larger business group or for a smaller less complex business group of medium complexity and financial risk.

To deliver an effective service and develop solutions to problems, the role will utilise a deep understanding of the business and all its finances (inputs, appropriations, multi-year, historic and forward-looking); knowledge of public sector financial management frameworks, processes, and systems; and financial acumen and professional judgment.

The Management Accountant is the ‘customer’ face of Finance. The role will liaise with and utilise specialist teams in Finance to ensure the Ministry meets its statutory financial obligations, to deliver value to managers in business groups, and ensure quality and consistent advice and practices.
