NXTGEN are working with a manufacturing business based in Norwich to recruit a Finance Analyst. Joining a small but established team, the Finance Analyst will work closely with the Finance Manager to understand some of the key performance metrics within the business. This will include everything from manufacturing outputs and stock levels to variance analysis. This diverse Finance Analyst role will also see the successful candidate support some of the day to day accounting activities including the month end close.
Key responsibilities of the role will include:
– Support the month end close and variance analysis reporting
– Review Stock levels and advise Finance Manager of stock position
– Bank and Balance sheet reconciliations
– Support Finance Manager with quarterly VAT returns
– Ad hoc support to AP/AR during busy periods
The successful candidate will ideally have prior experience in a similar analytical role with experience gained in manufacturing desirable. Whilst an accountancy qualification is preferred (AAT/Part ACCA/CIMA or equivalent), QBE candidates with relevant experience are also encouraged to apply. Good Excel skills will be key and candidates will need to demonstrate confidence using Pivots and V-Look Ups. Given the size of the finance team is only small, candidates will need to be flexible in approach and willing to pick up ad hoc finance tasks during peak periods.
