Are you an experienced (5 years’ experience) Operations Accountant who can use their initiative and interest in renewable energy to drive the financial success of the firm? We are looking for an accounting professional (ideally ACCA, CIMA or ACA certified) who is capable of adequately supporting the team through delivering expert IFRS and risk management knowledge.
Our client, within the IPP development sphere, works on various projects that will help enable Africa to generate power through developing plants utilising different technologies. Bearing this in mind, it is therefore important that our client has an individual on board that can provide solid accounting management assistance to those plants and subsidiaries to improve system reporting on overall plant performance. This is where you come in!
You are the perfect fit for this role if you have a wealth of knowledge gained not only from your Commerce or any other Financial Accounting degree but also from your exposure with working in an accounting role that had you covering all bases in the finance department. From reporting on a monthly basis to management and conducting in-depth forecasting analyses to providing ad-hoc support to the financial team and consolidating risk and decision making at a group level – you’ve done it all! You are an innate problem solver, able to calmly deal with important accounting issues that revolve around IFRS whilst improving current procedures and reporting techniques. This will put to the test your communications and even collaborative skills as you will be working alongside the treasury team, and many other departments including Business Development and Business Finance.
With opportunities for travel and working remotely, what’s not to like? Apply now!
