Your Opportunity

We are excited to have partnered with a Brisbane based Company who pride themselves upon their expertise in both investment and fund management.

Over the last decade, the Company has gone from strength to strength with a 50% growth rate month on month. The operations here in Brisbane are close-knit with a small team at the forefront of business operations. As a Company, they fully embrace new ideas and innovations to ensure that they are constantly delivering on the needs of their stakeholders and investors.

This position will offer the right individual a chance to not only be responsible for broad financial accounting work but also the ability to share the broader business planning and daily operations. Further, the role could diversify across two other business interests with a key focus in the start-up space, too. If you consider yourself as hard-working, humble, and driven, this could be the perfect next step for you.

This business-critical position will be hands-on with the day-to-day operations of the finance function, ensuring that financial practices and procedures are adhered to. You will be involved with financial accounting duties including monthly Bank reconciliations, accounts payable processing, completion of Month End processes including balance sheet reconciliations and assisting with managing external service providers including both tax and legal.

In addition, this blended role will see you be involved with annual budget reviews and detailed analysis on business performance, reviewing revenue generation, cost control and review of expenditure, as well as monthly management reports and the review of historical hours. As mentioned, you will work closely with the Head of Finance and Operations to ensure that they are fully briefed with the appropriate financial information to allow them to make critical business decisions that will affect the future direction of the company.

We're not just looking for a Financial Accountant. We're looking for a true professional who can lend not only their hand to the work, but also their mind to facilitate broader ideas within the team. Ideally, you will have exposure to Financial Services in previous roles, or a desire to learn the ropes among a close-knit team, all of whom have vested interests within the Company.

To be considered for this position you will be a fully qualified accountant, with an understanding that to be successful, you are a team player who doesn't mind picking up a few extra tasks to better the daily operations. As mentioned, we value your technical capability but your desire and capability to partner with people and create meaningful, collaborative relationships is just as important.

  • CPA or CA qualified
