Are you studying towards your ACCA or CIMA and looking to develop a career in finance analysis? Does building your career within a thriving manufacturing business get you excited?

I am supporting one of the UK's leading manufacturing companies, looking to add an Assistant Finance Analyst into their growing team based just outside Leicester for a salary of £25-30,000 PA on a permanent, hybrid basis.

Having recently received an influx of investment to focus on expansion, you will have the opportunity to join a team at the beginning of an exciting journey to success. Don't get me wrong; you won't be working with a startup… with an existing turnover of just shy of £100 million, this brand have a proven track record of profitable business already!

It's essential you possess a thirst for knowledge and willingness to learn. You will be offered exceptional development opportunities and become part of a thriving team. Previous manufacturing or costing experience would be preferred and you must have the ability to focus your time effectively and produce results within tight deadlines.

As the Assistant Finance Analyst, you will:

  • Process transactions and invoices for the manufacturing region
  • Assist in preparation of the management accounts, including variance analysis and balance sheet reconciliations
  • Report on the weekly cashflow forecast
  • Prep the monthly VAT returns
  • Work alongside the factory team to analyse and understand variances
  • Assist in audits, both half and full year
  • Work closely with the Finance Manager to produce monthly management accounts
  • Focus on process improvements where possible - you must be confident in liaising with both finance and non-finance teams and reporting your findings appropriately

It is crucial you:

  • Host great Excel skills; V-lookups and Pivot Tables as a minimum
  • Have the ability to communicate data analysis and findings to management teams
  • Have experience in a similar previous role and can demonstrate the building-blocks of your knowledge
  • Are keen to work towards your ACCA or CIMA qualification
  • Are passionate about career growth; you must show determination and enthusiasm
