The Management team encourages and supports key staff members to be entrepreneurial in their approach to improving processes and driving profitability.

Supporting the CFO here and in Sydney and supervising a small team of 5 you will take full responsibility for all management reporting and financial information for the business.

Additional to this is a number of projects that are currently live, including process and system implementations and you will be heavily involved in rolling these out.

Ideally you will be CA/CPA qualified with a public practice background. Hopefully you will have worked with family trusts in a business advisory role and have gone on to gain some commercial experience. We will also consider candidates who have reached the Manager level in Public Practice and are now looking for their first move in to commerce.
To be successful in this position you will need to be flexible and adaptable to a fast changing environment. Take accountability and responsibility for the teams work and be the gap between the team and the C-Suite.
This is an advisory role to the business and you will be working closely with the CEO and other senior leaders in both Brisbane and Sydney. They have an excellent attrition rate and are looking for someone who will invest themselves for the long term.
