My client is a large well known multinational company with a significant NZ operation in excess of $100M turnover. This leading-edge commercial manufacturing, engineering and maintenance company has been operating in Australasia for over 80 years. With over 300 employees this company has a strong culture and low staff turnover. Due to a major project they require a Contract Finance Manager to cover while the incumbent heads-up the project.

You must have strong attention to detail & accuracy, take pride in your work and have an ability to demonstrate an open mind to learning. You will need to have strong time management skills and an ability to multi-task. In an ideal world you will have some understanding of manufacturing (but this does not have to be in-depth), a broad skill base and a big plus would be if you have started your career in a CA practice and then have experience in a commercial setting.
