Part-time Assistant Accountant - Leicestershire - £30,000 FTE

We have a great opportunity for an experienced Assistant Accountant to join a fast-growth FMCG business on a part time basis. If you are a part-qualified accountant looking for a degree of flexibility and work/life balance, this could be the right role for you.

You'll be working for a market-leading business which has a global presence and is home to several household name brands. The role is based at one of their manufacturing sites where they produce several well-known products.

Working as part of a small site-finance team and reporting into the Site Finance Manager, the Assistant Accountant is responsible for undertaking the weekly accounts, overseeing manufacturing costs, variance analysis and balance sheet reconciliations. The Assistant Accountant is also expected to play a key role in improving processes and optimising systems, as well as generally supporting the Finance Manager and non-finance stakeholders.

In order to be successful in this role, you will need to be pro-active, organised and able to work in a fast-paced environment. Prior experience of working for an FMCG business, producing weekly reports and evaluating manufacturing costs would be beneficial. Ideally, you will be working towards a recognised accounting qualification (ACCA or CIMA) and able to start within the next two weeks.

Other roles you have applied for may include: Accountant, Assistant Accountant, Management Accountant, Finance Analyst, Finance Business Partner
