Strong technical skills and experience in financial services, particularly in annuities, is essential. The role is also open to someone making their first move from the Big 4 provided you have relevant experience and understanding of annuities.

You will initially report to the project manager for the product launch; then, following the launch, you will report to the CFO when the role moves to the 'business as usual' stage.

About You

We require an ambitious individual who will thrive in an organisation thathas and continues to experience major growth; you will enjoy working in a small, high performing team where decisions are made quickly.

  • Demonstrated track record in managing and delivering a new finance system and processes
  • Relevant Tertiary Qualification

This is a truly unique position and a great opportunity to be part of something new. You will play a critical part in all aspects of the product launch, after which your strong technical accounting skills will play an invaluable role as the position develops into the BAU stage. If you are seeking a role that will advance your career, this could be the perfect role for you.
