  • a tertiary qualified (as a minimum) or (ideally) CA or CPA qualified accountant, or
  • a professional currently studying towards a full CA or CPA qualification, or 
  • a competent senior accountant, qualified by experience, with a minimum of 4-5 years NZCA experience and
  • well-rounded competencies in financial accounting and tax compliance, and
  •  previous experience with monthly management reporting and 
  • strong systems skills and experience and proven ability to pick up new systems



·         Salary: $70,000 - $100,000 

·         Paid professional membership
