Jobs: Financial Services Manager, April 3, 2019


Sydney, NSW


James Cryer



02 9904 6222

Leading packaging supplier seeks senior Financial Services Manager to join the group in their rapidly growing facility.

  • Business set for new expansionary phase
  • Great location in Sydney’s western suburbs
  • Exciting growth sector – high-tech manufacturing

Our client is a major supplier of packaging products with a prestige client list consisting of many well-known FMCG brands.

As part of a larger packaging group, they are well-resourced and poised on the edge of their next growth phase, which is, to aggressively take on a larger market share.

They have extensive manufacturing, warehousing and distribution facilities – therefore someone with a background in financial management within manufacturing, production or logistics, would be smiled upon. This may include such manufacturing sectors (but not limited to) pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, personal-care products, contract-packing/fulfilment, labelling/bottling operations, etc.

The successful applicant will have had at least three years in a senior management accounting/financial management position, preferably with a strong cost-accounting focus.

You will have had strong exposure to post-cost analysis, cash-flow projections, assisting with capex proposals and preparing normal weekly/monthly/annual reporting – in other words, all those strategic or management accounting processes that will enable the Board to better manage the company’s resources and steer its way successfully into the future.

Accordingly, you will not just be a “number cruncher” but an active member of the management committee, reporting directly to the group GM, able to “put the case” to the Board, as required.

This is a new role, especially created for someone like you, with not only a strong technical accounting background but someone who can play an active role in the management and guidance of the company.

In other words: you possess equal elements of the “right brain/left brain” equation – you are that impossible combination, an “accountant with imagination”!

This is an exciting role, with a well-resourced company poised for growth in an expanding sector.

Given the seniority it is expected you will have CPA, CA or similar tertiary qualifications – underpinned by a hands-on understanding of the manufacturing process. Accordingly, the package is expected to exceed $100K (plus super) negotiable, based on experience.
