About the company:

This is a unique plant-based food technology organisation, operating from the Auckland Airport area and selling in over 700 locations across NZ, 50 in Australia and having recently launched in the US, they see great potential in this market and expect to see rapid growth in the next few years. With already established operations, this will be a key hire for the business in this next phase of growth, aspiring to become the best brand in their market!

Currently collaborating with multiple other organisations, this company is planning to boost production in NZ and long-term in to the US; experience within manufacturing and dealing with supply chain will be sought after.

A bit about the role:

Reporting to the General Manager, the role is broad and will change from day to day. This sole charge opportunity will enable you to make the role your own. 
Key responsibilities include:
  • Rolling up sleeves to get to know the business from the ground up, this includes the transactional ledgers and invoicing, as well as;
  • Full budgeting and forecasting processes (this experience is critical)
  • Expenses, cashflow and payroll
  • Month-end reconciliations, reporting and budget analysis
  • Guiding owners and management on financial decisions and growth plans - you’ll have a seat at the leadership table
  • Co-ordinating with suppliers, partners and other third parties across NZ and globally.
The role will work as part of a small, flat-structured team who all chip in for the good of the business and each other. This is more about the company journey than the role itself; a unique opportunity for someone passionate about the alternative (meat-free) food technology space as there’s been so much growth in this research over recent years, and will only continue as we strive to look into more sustainable ways of living.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who has worked in an all-round accounting role with a manufacturing / inventory focus - ideally within a fast-moving, dynamic environment where you are comfortable with pace and diversity. You have a sound understanding of both sides of the ledger and management accounting. Familiarity with Xero & Unleashed software would be great but more importantly someone who is engaged in what the organisation does and wants to get stuck into helping them thrive.

You're someone who takes ownership of every bit of work that you take on, and have an inquisitive nature always looking at ways things can be done better. Above all else, you are keen to be involved with a fun, hard-working team where you can add value in a short space of time.
