Management Accountant

Reporting to the Managing Director with a dotted line responsibility to a main board Director, the position of Management Accountant is a new position within the business structure and sits alongside the position of Financial Accountant.

The role of Management Accountant is responsible for the following:

  • Detailed analysis of the monthly profit and loss account from Sales to EBITA.
  • Management reporting requirements concerning utilisation of labour and capital assets.
  • Costing new workload and re-costing existing workload as required.
  • Ad-hoc and focussed review and analysis of business issues that arise on a case by case basis.

This distinguishes from the role of the Financial Accountant which will focus upon:

  • Day to day management of all ledgers, cash flow, invoice finance facility, VAT and other regular taxation returns.  Annual audit preparation and key interaction with auditors
  • Management of a team of 4 heads including Accounts Assistant, Credit Controller, Purchase Ledger Controller, payroll clerk
  • Timely preparation of the standard month end reporting pack for both internal and external reporting purposes

The Management Accountant will ideally have the following:

  • A detailed understanding of the operational aspects and requirements of the business.
  • Exposure to a service based industry where detail is clearly mandated.
  • A keen eye for both detail but with a clear understanding of information needs.

The ideal candidate is likely to be a CIMA qualified accountant, but this is not mandatory.  However, experience and capability are essential.  The right person will hit the ground running.
