Description

The Company

Our client is responsible for the largest portion of the Australian market for this automotive services business. They are owned by a large, multinational parent company who has an excellent reputation globally. The business is moving its Australian finance function interstate for future growth potential and, with a geographical change, would like to take the opportunity to assess current processes within the business.

Due to the organisation being part of a global parent, the business is required to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) regulation and, while assessing current compliance, is wanting to identify potential areas for improvement and/or increased control. With a December year-end looming we will also be coming into a busy period which may increase the duration of this project.

The Project

In this light the business is looking for a qualified individual between a senior accountant and financial controller level who has had extensive exposure to SOX compliance in their prior work environments. This project represents an excellent opportunity to work with an impressive leadership team, and it will focus on the following areas:

  • Understanding the monthly accounting process and taking control of the end-to-end balance sheet operation
  • Documenting current processes
  • Identifying areas for increased control or organizational efficiency
  • Providing recommendations on areas of potential risk or lack of compliance
  • Working with the finance function and senior leadership team to improve SOX understanding
  • Partnering with operational stakeholders to improve overall organizational efficiency
  • Implementing processes around the current finance function based on business partnering with senior finance and operational stakeholders
  • Advising future project scopes and preparing business cases

This project will originally begin as one to increase clarity of financial processes and internal controls. After this initial phase there will be opportunities to be seconded into other projects surrounding the growth of the finance function, preparation of statutory reports, business case development for smaller projects surrounding the interstate relocation and more.

Your Profile

You are a CPA/CA Qualified Accountant with an end-to-end background in finance and experience in a SOX compliant environment. Our client can see value added by anyone from a senior accounting level to a financial controller level. You will be able to provide initiative and intuitive thinking surrounding business process improvement and efficiency to increase internal controls and overall business efficiencies. You will be confident in your communication with the ability to present to senior management and liaise with other non-finance stakeholders of the organisation.

This position will suit an active person looking for career growing projects with the opportunity to add value in the long run. The role starts as a temporary position with an immediate start.
