Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Assistant Management Accountant - Falmouth / Hybrid - £26-30,000

If you’re a motivated accountant who feels disillusioned by the limited number of employers in Cornwall that can offer genuine gold-standard career advancement, we’re going to make you smile. 

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have formed an exclusive recruitment partnership with a manufacturing business that are very commonly regarded as the county’s most sought after employer. A large, modern, globally trading business that put their employees at the forefront of everything they do. A business with unrivalled employee retention and an average staff tenure that leaves other employers wondering exactly how they do it. A business that is helmed by one of the most talented management teams in the region, both in and out of finance, and in 2021 achieved an impressive 40% growth in sales. 

Their finance-number-one (also introduced by Trial Balance Consulting), is a highly knowledgeable, energetic, and hugely approachable individual with big plans for the future of the company’s large accounting function. The structure of the function is changing and they now seek to welcome no less than three new colleagues to their team. Nobody has left the business or the department, they’re all brand new roles that have been created off the back of internal promotions and to facilitate continued growth. 

Assistant Management Accountant: An important role within a large team, this is a broad and interesting opportunity. Working closely with an experienced Management Accountant and ultimately reporting to the Senior Management Accountant, the successful candidate will liaise with colleagues in multiple areas of the business, and supports other members of the finance team. Key responsibilities to include: 

- Play a key role in the preparation of monthly management accounting and reporting

- Maintenance of nominal ledger accounts 

- Analysis of overhead spending

- Reconciliation of balance sheet accounts 

- Assisting all members of the finance team

- Transactional processing and journal entries (company credit cards etc.)

- Prepayment and accruals postings

For this role we seek a candidate with at least 18 months of recently gained general finance experience ideally, though not essentially, gained with a manufacturing business. Applicants may be AAT qualified, working towards a professional qualification (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), or with relevant vocational experience (QBE). The successful candidate should possess good MS Excel skills and a strong aptitude for grasping modern accounting ERPs (the company currently utilises MS Dynamics AX). Whilst strong technical accounting skills are obviously a given, our client has made strong emphasis on the importance of personable and team-working qualities. The role works within a highly efficient, friendly and motivated team in a business where finance is respected and regularly consulted by colleagues in all areas of the business. 

What’s in it for the successful candidate?

- Hybrid working with up to 3 days per week home based if required 

- Flexible working

- High quality, modern offices

- A highly regarded brand

- 27 days holiday + public
