Financial Accountant
Sydney West
Permanent Full Time

Join Lion’s Accounting Services Team as a Financial Accountant, reporting directly to the Accounting Services Leader. With both Permanent Full-time and 12-month Fixed Term Contract opportunities available, these roles are based out of our Sydney Olympic Park and York Street offices with the flexibility to work from home 50% of the time.

In the food and beverage industry, things move fast. We challenge ourselves to remain resilient and stay ahead of the game by leading change through product innovation and continuing to reinvent our customer experience.

As a Financial Accountant, you will partner with a variety of stakeholders and will be responsible for master data governance, inter-company accounts, general ledger and month-end closing. You will challenge the status quo, be a keen problem solver and will always be looking for ways to improve our processes and maintain consistency across our group accounting processes.

As well as gaining cross - functional experience in accounting services more broadly, you will get exposure to every entity at Lion, which makes for an interesting role and means you will always be learning.

To be successful in this role, you will have: 
•    Strong stakeholder management / business partnering skills
•    Demonstrated ability to effectively prioritise tasks
•    Demonstrated ability to identify efficiencies and drive process improvement
•    Solid Accounting experience in Big 4 / mid-tier or as a Financial Accountant in a complex organisation

Experience in a group structure or multinational company would set you up for a smoother transition into the role. You will also have a challenger mindset and constantly be looking for ways to improve. CA or CPA qualification preferable.  

Creating your own path means taking ownership of your development. With us, learning opportunities come in different forms. With open minds and a hunger to learn, we’ll grow with the organisation.

Experience life empowered - find out how you’ll be your best with us.
