Our client is a fast growing, tech-enabled start-up that is presently making waves in their sector and quickly gaining customers. They've won multiple awards that show how exciting a company prospect this is including High Growth Team of the Year and Most Innovative Business. They can offer staff an inspiring place to work due to their strong company culture and entrepreneurial company spirit.

This is not a typical accounting role. You will be part of the management team and a lot of the work will involve reaching beyond the realm of finance to help the business achieve its strategic and operational goals. They need someone with excellent organisational and analytical skills, who can stay on top of internal reporting and statutory filings, while also delivering insightful financial analysis for ad-hoc projects when required.

Most of the work will require you to think independently and strategically to produce results where no pre-defined processes are in place. This provides a great opportunity for freedom and creativity in how those results are achieved.
