Our client is a global market leader in the manufacturing of cartons, leaflets, and labels for the pharma and health industries, with staffing at the heart of their ongoing growth and success. Indeed, our client has a reputation for investing heavily in staff attraction, training, and retention, and in return looks for individuals who enjoy working as part of a close team, are passionate about what they do, and who strive to make a difference through innovation and process improvement.

Currently, our client is looking to recruit a Management Accountant to join their already talented team, and where professional qualifications are desirable but where qualified by experience is equally attractive.

* Professional experience in a Manufacturing environment is a pre-requisite, along with exposure to areas that include stock, standards, variance reporting etc.

* Whilst Professional qualifications are desirable, they are not essential (although study package and support are available....), qualified by experience (QBE) is equally attractive.
