Finance Manager


First things first let's get this one thing out of the way, this role is based in Kalgoorlie. It isn't FIFO from Perth, so, if that's what you are looking for then this isn't the role for you.


If you are an experienced Finance Manager seeking the opportunity to get your hands dirty again in a fast moving business, then this could be just what you are looking for.

My client sees their growth continuing on its current trajectory for the foreseeable future and will need a FM that can help grow, guide and develop along with it.


One thing you have to know about this client is that they genuinely care about their people. The saying "They treat you like family" can always be good or bad depending on your past experiences! At my client it means that you are given the respect you deserve and get to work in an environment where everyone gets along, works towards a common goal and you are seen as a person, not just an employee. 

They hold regular get-togethers with the team, from a quarterly sundowner through to a brilliant Christmas Party (with families) and even organise some team weekends away!


So this is the part of the ad where you get the bullet-pointed list of key responsibilities, I haven't figured out a way to get to get away from this yet and know it is the equivalent of a PowerPoint presentation, so sorry... but here we go!
  • Preparing management and financial reports and recommending improvements.
  • Providing budgeting support to different departments.
  • Negotiating on new projects or investment.
  • Advising on financial strategy and decision making.
  • Keeping the business compliant from a financial standpoint.
  • Analysing financial information to assist business profitability and growth.
  • Providing accurate and sound management reporting to assist with key decision making.
  • Producing month end and year end journals.
  • Reporting directly to the Senior Leadership Team.
  • Preparation of Monthly Management Reports and Evaluate the company’s performance using key data over the various Business Divisions.
  • Gather and analyse financial information for management team.
  • Facilitating revenue generation through invoice management and optimising cashflow by overseeing accounts receivable and debt recovery processes.
  • Prepare budgets and forecasts.
  • Assist the company in managing its various business divisions.
  • Assume responsibility of accounting procedures.
  • Make forecasts to assist business planning and decision-making.
  • Conduct risk assessment and advise on ways to minimise risk.
  • Advise on problems and suggest improvements.
  • Supervise lower-level personnel.
Still with me? Got through that with relative ease? Great, please read on!

You will be running a team that is split between Kalgoorlie and Perth, don't worry you travel to Perth regularly to meet with them and ensure they feel like part of the finance team.

  • You need to come into this role with a strong understanding of what it takes to get your head around a business' current position, where they are looking to get to and then getting the plan in place to get them there.
  • This will mean that you come into the role with at least 3 years in a similar role.
  • Tertiary Qualifications with CA or CPA an advantage.
  • Solid knowledge of basic and advanced accounting and financial principles and practices.
  • Excellent knowledge of cost accounting, reporting, risk analysis, budgeting, and forecasting.
  • You'll be working in MYOB, Excel (and other MS Office products), and SimPro so having experience in these platforms would also be a bonus.
