Accountant job in a global distribution business with a large finance function based in Manchester

Your new company
A huge global distribution business, with international operations, and turnover in the billions. Based in Wythenshawe (Manchester), the company has free on-site parking, and nearby public transport links.

Your new role
As Accountant, you will balance management accounts preparation, financial statements/reporting, and acting as mentor/team-leader to a team of four part-qualified Assistant Accountants. You'll also support and business partner with various business areas, challenging decisions, and improving existing/implementing new processes.

What you'll need to succeed
You'll be a qualified accountant with relevant previous experience. You may have had experience within distribution/retail/manufacturing, but although this is a bonus, it is not required. You may have had previous experience of Kerridge, which is again, a bonus. You'll have intermediate excel skills (or better).

What you'll get in return
You'll receive a salary of £40k alongside benefits. You'll be joining a large global business, that offers immediate new exposure, with excellent prospects for personal/career progression and development.
