Job Details

Your new company
We are delighted to be partnering with a leading company in their sector who are looking for an additional Management Accountant to strengthen the team and focus on margins as well as analyse forecasts. You will be part of the wider finance team with general management and accounting duties.

Your new role
In this newly created Management Accountant role you will be responsible for reporting on the financial performance of 5 sites across the UK with a specific focus on margins, forecasting and analysis of future sales as well as production costs.

These key tasks will involve working closely with the procurement and buying teams to analyse the cost of current and future raw material purchases for the business who, as a group, have a £450m turnover. You will use this data to produce detailed forecasts and analyse actual costs vs. the forecasted figure along with commentary on reasons for any variances which will be discussed across the finance and operational teams.

As you will be part of the Management Accounting team, your monthly duties will involve producing management accounting packs to include prepayments, accruals, journals, budget variances and attending regular meetings with site and project managers to review the figures, so any experience of being a Finance Business Partner would be of interest. You will also assist with budget setting and reconciling payroll costs to assist the wider finance team in improving production / operational costs.

What you will need to succeed
The successful candidate will have an inquisitive mindset to analyse raw material costs, production and operational costs to ensure accurate forecasting reports are submitted and updated regularly to the Finance Director and have the confidence to investigate any variances.

We expect you to be confident in the use of Excel to analyse the data and present your findings etc.

This role we feel would ideally suit an AAT Qualified or Part-Qualified CIMA / ACCA Management Accountant who enjoys analysing large volumes of data and has a strong commercial awareness of monthly reporting for, ideally, manufacturing or food production, but these business sectors are not essential.

What you will get in return
The organisation offers a competitive salary of circa £35,000 - £40,000 depending on experience, 8.30am - 5.00pm, pension, paid holidays and, flexible, working 3 days at home and 2 days working on-site after a qualifying period. However, if you wish to work more on-site, that would be acceptable as you will work closely with the production teams.
