This is not a 2nd-tier offshore accounting team focused on low-value, manual processes. You will be part of our small and efficient Central Finance team that owns global finance operations. We have automated all of the non-essential tasks away – you will be focused on delivering only the tasks that add value to the organization.
This creates an opportunity to own financial performance reporting and interact directly with business executives within our unique and rapidly expanding global business. You will become a better finance professional by exposure to more interesting and complex work in your first three months with us than in the previous three years of your career.
What You Will Be Doing
You will be given full responsibility for preparing monthly and quarterly financial and performance analysis for a group of entities. You will coordinate and work with senior leaders to thoroughly understand their business and strategy, and develop insights to help them achieve their goals. You will tie operational improvement suggestions to financial targets, understand commercial and operational trends impacting financial performance and help drive business outcomes. You also have the accounting acumen to produce accurate and timely budgets, forecasting and variance analysis, and can review and manage accruals and allocations.
