The Company

Our client is mid-tier ASX-listed Financial Services business that provides a range of products to their customers, including wealth management, planning, accounting services and membership-based technical training support. With turnover approaching $60m and with a number of acquisitions still to be bedded down, this is not just a business that has carved out an impressive niche in the marketplace, but has terrific upside.

The Role

Reporting to the FP&A Manager, and with a dotted line to the Finance Director this role will have strong project and process improvement focus. More specifically:

  • Explore, recommend and implement processes to allow a better flow of information and transactional reporting between the corporate office and the subsidiaries
  • Streamline the weekly commission operations from a reconciliations and calculations point of view
  • Assist in driving forward a number of system consolidation projects

There will also be a business as usual requirements for this role which include:

  • Daily Banking transfers
  • Daily Bank Reconciliations
  • Coordinating and controlling the company recharges
  • Expenses claims processing
  • Liaison with Advisers as part of the dealer group network

Your Background

It’s worth noting that this role is not a traditional accounting role, and whilst you would be sitting in the Finance team, a lot of your role will be transactional and process-improvement focused. To be considered for this role, you will need to be able to demonstrate a strong process improvement and transactional background. Experience within a commissions based business of Financial services would be of significant advantage as would exposure to Commpay, Easydealer, BMS or any other Brokerage CRM.
