Senior Financial Accountant - Education - CBD

Company Background

Our client is one of Australia’s best-known specialist tertiary education organisations, and have been operating for nearly 50 years both locally and internationally. Their Finance team is well established, cohesive and is now needing a Senior Financial Accountant to help them through their post-Covid resurgence as they expand organically, and through acquisition. 

The Role

Reporting to the Financial Controller within a larger team of eight, this role manages an Assistant Accountant and an Accounts Payable Officer. More specifically the role will look after the: 

  • Management of two junior accountants 
  • Financial reporting including preparation of the annual financial statements for the Australian, New Zealand and UK businesses
  • Run and oversee the month-end process including the production of the ANZ and UK monthly management reports
  • Produce the monthly board reports 
  • Manage the monthly Revenue and Government reporting
  • Help out with the annual budgeting process 
  • Ensure returns for GST/VAT, FBT, Payroll Tax, and Income Tax for all entities are lodged on time
  • Ensure all the reporting is financially compliant with fiscal authorities in Australia, New Zealand, and UK 
  • Liaison with external tax advisors and auditors
  • Assist the Financial Controller with the implementation of new technologies, including their pending new financial accounting and reporting system

Your Background

As this is a relatively hands-on role (no ivory towers here), the client would love to hire someone who has solid experience with the preparation of financial statements (could be from Business Services) and has driven the month-end process previously. 

With revenues sub $100m, it’s still an SME so someone experienced within that organisational size is perfect. Also, experience in the services industry, (in particular education) would be fabulous.

It’s a great role, in a great team that will really develop an up-and-coming Financial Accountant into a strong future business partner.
