Full Time

  Populous People

  Hastings, Hawke's Bay

This is a great opportunity to be part of the New Zealand wine industry – if you are a qualified accountant expert in financial accounting and reporting, and keen to know more we would love to hear from you.
You will sit amongst a finance and admin team here in Hawkes Bay and be reporting to a Senior Finance Manager who is based out of the region. All the tools are set up at their Hawkes Bay based winery asset to keep you linked into the corporate team.
Your core focus will be to assist the Senior Finance Manager with meeting reporting obligations, lead the management of fixed assets and manage the transactional team. There will be a strong process improvement focus – you will establish and improve the accounting and reporting processes across the team. But we will also need you to get hands-on, managing of month-end processes to produce timely financial results, and assisting with balance sheet reconciliations, and have oversight of payroll.  You will play a key role in supporting managers to understand and evaluate department performance, operating costs, trends, forecasts so as to develop sound business and investment decisions. 
We need someone with a good track record in financial accounting, ideally with a real relatability to a winery or similar environment. You will be a tertiary qualified accountant, and ideally CA or equivalent. You must be technically competent in transactional accounting detail but also be keen to help make process improvements and analyse the numbers. You will have had exposure and relate well to stock-based operations, manufacturing, production, and value add operations.   You will be able to balance workflow and priorities across financial accounting processes and have proven experience in data reporting and reconciliation.   An approachable, pragmatic style, open communication skills and a high level of initiative will see you feeling right at home. If you have the required expertise and feel ready to join a winery business with multiple operations and a wider investment group focus, then please apply now via this portal.  Or telephone the team at Populous People on 06 875 8446 in confidence to learn more.

* For offshore based, non-NZ resident candidates, you will need to clearly state your NZ visa work status.  Only those able to clearly demonstrate current working entitlements and able to attend interviews in NZ, will be considered and responded to.
