A Little Bit About The Company

This Kiwi owned business is one of the few New Zealand businesses that have built a reputation globally; a professional services business which operates across the Asia Pacific region and beyond, they are known for being the best of the best and their name will look great on your CV.

They are one of the most people focused businesses in New Zealand and view their staff as their greatest asset. They are a true market leader with projects spanning 70 countries throughout the world.

Some More Information About The Role

You'll be working closely with your key internal stakeholders to help them manage their business unit and support on the completion of projects . They are true industry leaders and, as a result, leadership wants them to focus on delivering their projects, so they really need strong financial support from the commercial finance team.

You will be responsible for helping your stakeholders to manage their financials but also help them understand other KPIs and wider drivers to help them make informed decisions, improve productivity, profitability, and the quality of the work that they provide to their clients. This is the type of opportunity which will suit an excellent communicator who isn't afraid to challenge those around them.

Some of the key tasks in the role include:
  • Demonstrate and promote best practice project accounting including support to project governance, financial management plans, ERP & project delivery systems, project audits, project controls, invoicing, and project reporting.
  • Support working capital management for the projects you are looking after.
  • Provide financial advice throughout the lifecycle of a project, including project reporting & controls, ensuring revenue assessments are in accordance with current accounting standards and group policies.
  • Work with project leaders to prepare supporting documentation to secure fair project variations.
  • Support commercial business partners with pricing and profitability analysis.
  • Work closely with the other corporate business partners and advisors to provide a coordinated service to the business.
  • Analyse project performance dashboards and reports, highlighting key insights about the project’s financial performance.
  • Coordinate project forecasting to support projects leaders with decision-making.
So Who Are You & What Is Your Profile?

You'll be a natural communicator, whose passion lies in the commercial side of accounting. You'll have an understanding of other commercial drivers outside of core finance and how they can affect business results and drive business performance, and above all, you will be naturally curious and ask the right questions. Experience in a project-focused environment would be a real advantage and some exposure to the construction sector would definitely be great but in reality this is a great development opportunity for someone with the right commercial mindset.

You'll be able to influence people at all levels and will be comfortable pushing back and challenging stakeholders when needed. You will need to be CA/CPA qualified to be considered for the role. Your ability to delve into the numbers will be critical, hence why an accounting background will be essential.

Our client has a very large finance team so there are huge opportunities to grow and develop within the organisation.
