Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC10570

Our client is a family-owned business with focus on strategic and operational management of a group of companies in the commercial and residential property sector.

This is a hands-on sole charge role with a truly broad work scope. The successful candidate will have full responsibility for the entire accounting and finance function of the group. The role has a substantial commercial aspect and can best be described as a mix of strategic and operational management.

Reporting directly to the owners and working closely alongside the project managers, the role requires the talents of an accomplished accounting professional. Experience with project accounting and/or experience in the property sector is essential for this role.

Our client described the role as multi-faceted and therefore requiring the ability to juggle conflicting priorities.

Some of the key accounting responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Statutory reporting, including year-end financial statements and other periodic reports
  • Management reporting / preparation of monthly reports for the directors
  • Preparation of budgets and cashflows
  • Monitoring budgets to actual performance
  • Maintenance of general ledgers
  • Financial planning
  • Evaluation and analysis of opportunities
  • Reviewing and implementing processes and procures
  • Liaise with the company’s external accountants and ensure best practice tax planning for all companies
  • Manage all aspects of companies’ tax obligations
  • Other ad hoc responsibilities when required

On the broader commercial management side of the role, you will be involved in:

  • Reviewing a wide range of documents, including:

·         - sales and purchase agreements,

·         - lease agreements

·         - Commercial negotiations

·         - Property titles

·         - Develop lease terms and conditions

·         - Lead rental review processes

·         - Lead property valuation processes

In addition to the above duties and responsibilities, the successful candidate will be involved in:

  • Ensure appropriate controls
  • Monitor the integrity and security of financial information
  • Internal financial controls
  • Management of security and insurance systems
  • Manage the IT network systems and hardware
  • Plan and manage the software and hardware requirements of the companies

We are looking for a CA qualified Financial Controller/Commercial Manager with 5-6 or more years’ experience in a role with similar responsibilities/dynamics. Experience in the property sector, while not strictly required, will be considered advantageous.
