Our Client is a Hastings based company which is involved in the manufacture, distribution and installation of products used in the building and construction industries.

A great opportunity has become available for an experienced individual, able to take charge in this busy and key role in the organisation as a Branch Accountant.

Primarily a sole-charge role, reporting to the Branch Manager, the key tasks include:

  • Daily cash management and forecasts
  • Balance Sheet maintenance including monthly reconciliations
  • Weekly and monthly payrolls (using MYOB EXO)
  • Oversee creditors and debtors (including credit applications and PPSR’s)
  • Inventory management (including stock takes and steel supplier account reconciliations)
  • Completion of GST, FBT and PAYE returns and payments, together with all other Government and local body compliance reporting
  • Assist management with monthly progress claims on construction contracts

The key skills and experiences required include:

  • Accurate with a strong attention to detail and able to meet deadlines

Reporting to the branch manager, and working largely autonomously, we are looking for an experienced accountant (not necessarily qualified), who is keen on the flexibility this role offers and possesses excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Experience with MYOB EXO and MYOB Payroll (Comacc) will be an advantage as will manufacturing accounting experience.

As a decentralised company within a wider group structure it has all the attributes of a small business as well as the structural demands of a group entity.  Therefore, you will need to be naturally organised and articulate, able to cope with a demanding role, create and maintain strong relationships with stakeholders in the group, and be the sort of person people naturally turn to for support.
