Our client is a well-established PLC based in the Warrington area. In line with an exciting period of change and transformation, they are looking for an Interim Project Accountant to join their Finance Transformation team on a contract basis.

The Interim Project Accountant will be involved in leading on and delivering projects within a high-level change environment.

Reporting directly to the Head of Finance Transformation, the Interim Project Accountant will take responsibility for the following duties:

  • Ensuring controls flow through to the wider accounting function and accounts rules connect
  • Driving initiatives to totally transform various functions within the finance department
  • Managing risks and issues associated with change and transformation
  • Implementing a new finance system (Oracle)
  • Making early provisions to make processes and governance changes in advance of the new finance system implementation (Oracle)
  • Educating colleagues about more efficient ways of working

  • Proven experience of making substantial process improvements and operational efficiencies within a PLC

Due to the nature of this role, a robust personality is key. The Interim Project Accountant must be prepared to roll up their sleeves and get involved in the thick of the day to day, as well as taking a step back to see the 'bigger picture'.

This person will play a key part in facilitating change and therefore needs to be resilient by nature.
