Our client, a reputable renewable energy producer, is in search of a Financial Accountant who will assist in providing the full accounting function for its parent and project companies. The majority of the role is highly structured and consists of routine bookkeeping and account payments, with corporate finance and auditing forming part of an auxiliary function. As much of the financial capturing is outsourced by the client, experience in review, analysis and corrections of financial statements with a keen eye for detail is vital to a successful application for this role.
Basic requirements include a relevant accounting qualification (ideally SAIPA membership) and experience in:
- IFRS for SME’s
- Various reconciliations
- Budget to actual cost tracking
- Deferred tax
- Assisting with both internal and external audits
Experience in renewable energy finance, especially with Independent Power Producers and Power Purchase Agreements, is not necessary, but highly beneficial.
