Job Description

Are you an experienced and ideally immediately available Management Accountant who is looking to work for a growing and entrepreneurial construction business, close to your home in Staines Upon Thames, Surrey? Are you looking to play a key role in a rapidly growing business, where you will help the business achieve long term success? If so this good quality business, which has a turnover of around £18m, is looking for an immediately available and experienced Management Accountant to join their small yet growing finance team. Reporting directly to the head of finance and managing 2 staff, your role will include: preparation of the management accounts, assisting with the overall smooth running and efficiency of finance function, cash flows, job costings, work in progress, staff management, review of work, liaising with other departments (eg sales, purchases), bringing all figures up to TB stage, VAT returns, producing various reports and other ad hoc jobs as required. You will work with the head of finance on a daily basis and together produce all the company accounts and ensure the business has robust systems and controls. Your role will be varied, challenging, yet hugely enjoyable. The firm currently uses sage.

To be considered for this new role, you must ideally be immediately available or be able to start a new position within a few weeks. You must be a car driver and live within commuting distance of Staines Upon Thames. You must have some experience of the construction sector, management accounts and job costings. Candidate who are qualified or qualified by experience will be considered.  You must have experience of the above duties, and be able to hit the ground running. You must have experience of Sageline 50 and Excel, and be able to work to tight deadlines, as well as being a team player and be able to manage staff.

Based in a small yet friendly team (2 finance staff and 15 in total in the office), this entrepreneurial construction company is growing at a very impressive rate meaning there will be many opportunities for you to grow with the business. The firm is a fun and relaxed place to work, with a strong team spirit and more experienced staff that you can learn from. Overall this is an excellent new opportunity for an immediately available Management Accountant who lives within easy commuting distance to Staines, to join a growing and entrepreneurial business and have great long term prospects for future growth and development.
