Reporting to the Financial Controller, the Management Accountant is a key member of our small Finance team which comprises the Financial Controller, Management Accountant (this role) and Finance Officer. It is therefore crucial that any candidate is aware that the role will be very wide ranging and will include work that doesn’t necessarily require an accountancy qualification. However, the individual must possess the work ethic and attitude to get things done and not place too much importance or emphasis on their qualification. Management accounts will be part of the role and therefore the successful candidate must be confident and able to produce them without too much ongoing support, but their teamwork and attitude to fit in with the Knowsley ethic is equally if not more important.
The recruitment pack for this vacancy can be found here which includes further information about the role, the ideal candidate and details on how to apply.
