A Little Bit About The Company

This business was formed 12 months ago when an Australian business bought a subsidiary of a large NZ business, they have had to set up the business (and systems) from scratch even though they had all of the staff and plant they needed to run the business and had contracts running. They're a very specialist contractor in the civil/construction space who are well regarded in their field, have a full order book and a clear strategy for growth over the coming years. The offices are well located close to the motorway and the business has a real family feel. They operate all over New Zealand but also with ambitions for the Pacific islands and Australia.

More About The Role

You'll be working closely with the leadership team and General Manager to help run the business, producing the monthly P&L and presenting directly to the board, the structure is very flat so everyone helps everyone to deliver what needs to be delivered. All of the transactional work will be taken care of but the role is hands on in terms of producing the accounts. As the business grows (expecting to nearly double), your role will focus more and more on the bigger picture, they really want someone who has the potential to grow as the business grows.

  • Cash management and forecasting
  • Preparation of monthly financial information including board packs
  • GST, FBT and ACC
  • Production of all balance sheet accounts
  • Oversee procurement
  • Budgets and forecasts
  • Support the wider business with ad hoc commercial analysis

This is a great role where you'll be a valued advisor to the management team. Due to the nature of the stage of the business, there will be more of a focus on cash management.

So Who Are You & What Is Your Profile?

You will be a CA (or CPA, CIMA, etc) or qualified by experience in a similar industry. You'll have an understanding of how projects are accounted for (could be in any industry) and happy to be hands on. Fit into the business is key, so someone who is a good communicator and doesn't take themselves too seriously will be a big bonus.
