Senior Financial Accountant Mining FIFO Brisbane QLD

This prominent, global mining company is currently recruiting for a Senior Financial Accountant to support their site based mining operation on a three month contract basis. There is strong possibility for this role to convert to a permanent position. Although the contract role allows for FIFO, the permanent position will be a residential role.

This role will provide you with an opportunity to work for a successful resources business with a strong focus on reporting and process improvement. This is an organization dedicated to a safe working culture and has a proven track record of internally promoting and professionally developing its staff. Through careful diversification of their commodity portfolio and by integrating their mining assets with their logistics arm, they have achieved stable and steady growth.

The Position

In this contract role, you will be responsible for managing and leading a team of qualified Accountants. This role will include driving the month end consolidations. You will be responsible for managing the financial accounting and compliance, management reporting, reviewing tax, drafting technical memos, reviewing improvements and changes to the system, undertaking detailed P&L analysis and identifying process improvement initiatives.

Your Profile

You will possess technical accounting ability commensurate with your CPA/CA qualification. A proven history in questioning the status quo in order to improve processes will be required. You will have proven success in leading high performing teams and you will have exceeded expectations in your work history. If your experience includes a chartered background with some commercial experience in mining, energy, resources or manufacturing, this role would be a good fit for you.

In return

You will enjoy being a part of a stable and friendly team populated by calm, assured and even-tempered professionals. You will be managed by a senior leadership group who will be physically proximate to you on site to provide mentorship and support. This leadership team is not interested in remote control management from a distant head office. You will be rewarded with a generous and achievable bonus plan, not liked to commodity prices. Above average Superannuation will be paid.
