My client, a division of one of the UK's leading construction solution providers urgent requires a temporary management accountant for a 6 month fixed term contract.

The role is designed to support the Finance Director in production of the monthly management accounts. Specifically, work will be passed to the management accountant in the form of a data download from the ERP system into excel. There will be a large volume of data that will need to be manipulated and analysed. This data is used to produce the management accounts and is then consolidated and reconciled at the end of the process. This division has 6-7 large contracts, each of which requires management accounts preparation. Month end takes between 7 to 10 days, the rest of the month is spent on projects, for example fuel spend analysis and ONS stats preparation.

The successful candidate will be a qualified or part qualified accountant with excellent excel ability (for example, a demonstratable track record in manipulating volume data). We also require someone to be hands on and happy to change priorities quickly. Finally, the site reflects the construction business so interested candidates must be prepared to work in a non-corporate environment.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a divisional Finance Director of a well known UK business and add value to the finance team.
