Led by an experienced team of industry experts they have a strong R&D focus which enables them to be at the forefront of new developments in their sector and with the ability to design, manufacture and distribute they offer a complete service to their customers.

Currently gearing up for further growth they have identified a new role for a Project Accountant with a proven track record of driving profitability through operational efficiency. Much of the routine financial reporting will continue to be outsourced so this position is all about providing financial support and analysis, managing margins and driving out cost with a view to improving performance. This stand-alone role will report directly into the site MD and will involve close interaction with the other Directors and department senior managers, excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to positively challenge and multi task between projects will therefore be essential qualities for this position. The key responsibilities will include:

  • Devise, measure and report on financial and operational KPI’s
  • Produce reports monthly and for quarterly board meetings

  • Management of WIP, gross margins, wastage etc.

As this is a new role the position would suit someone able to implement new processes, drive continuous improvement and deliver change in a positive manner. The ideal candidate for the Project Accountant position would have a high level of comfort with multiple IT applications (ideally ERP systems), the ability to export and analyse data in Excel and translate this into something meaningful for non-finance managers.

The position would suit an experienced Management / Project Accountant with an engineering or manufacturing background who would enjoy an operational role where their efforts have a real impact on decision making at all levels within the business. You will be joining an ambitious team based in a modern office environment and will play a vital role in the continued success and expansion of this business.

Really impressed with AFR Consulting and their speedy effort to find me suitable employment. Tammy and Sarah really had my best interests at heart and the whole experience was much more of personal service than a business transaction as found at other recruitment agencies. I would certainly be using them in the future after trusting them to find me the perfect job.
