What this Financial Accountant job offers you:

This Accountant job in Galway sits on the financial analyst team and uniquely offers you a chance to use your existing financial or GL accounting experience to grow your career in financial analysis, project support, acquisition & integration accounting within an international manufacturing finance team.  It also allows you to move away from the month-end deadlines and schedules that so often cut into your work-life balance goals. And finally it could offer you your first move into the manufacturing sector, as no previous manufacturing sector experience is required.

More about your new job:

Your purpose in this Financial Accountant job is to support the Business Area financial analysis team in all aspects of acquisition accounting as well as integration & project activities.

An excellent Financial Accountant job for an ambitious, commercially astute accountant, it offers you a chance of unrivalled learning and development as you work closely with a Global VP Finance and a Global Finance Director in a highly visible financial analysis and project accounting job in one of Galway’s top employers. Joining a company renowned for team collaboration, world-class IT systems and strong employee recognition & development initiatives, this job will offer you excellent autonomy, flexibility and accountability, in the new, state-of-the-art facility of a highly successful, well-established multinational company.

Hybrid working: With options to work from home 2 days a week, this newly created senior finance position has arisen as a result of growth through acquisitions, as well as additional support requirements on numerous ongoing projects across the global business.

Your new job:

Reporting to the Business Unit Finance Director, you will be given autonomy for:

  1. Assisting with the integration processes for new acquisitions and advise management on risks within acquisition entities and mitigations.
  2. Preparation of forecasts, budgets and consolidation for acquisitions.
  3. Provision of input on local finance policies and procedures ensuring ongoing compliance for all accounting and finance operations.
  4. Support of the monthly and quarterly financial reporting cycle in accordance with IFRS including preparation, analysis and posting of journals, monthly accruals, prepayments and balance sheet reconciliations
  5. Review and reconciliation of inter-company accounts, as well as multi-currency bank reconciliations and related variance analysis.
  6. Participate in, or lead other ad-hoc projects

Salary and Conditions:

Base salary will be offered at approximately €60,000-65,000.
Excellent benefits include 25 days holidays, full health insurance & 5% pension from day one, and a significant completion bonus, offered even in the event the job becomes permanent after.

This job is initially offered as a 12 month contract, with a strong view to permanency.

The best parts of the job:

The biggest attraction of this job is that it’s with one of Galway’s best companies to work for, if not The Best.

Having worked as a Recruitment Partner to this company for over 18 years, I can say without hesitation that they are an excellent employer. Here are some of the reasons why:

  1. They offer early progression to people who are “promotion ready”, tending to offer jobs to ambitious people who are looking for the “next step” in their career, rather than the person already doing the same job elsewhere.
  2. The management team and all their employees are extremely impressive – grounded, pragmatic, competent people who really pull together to get things done.
  3. The company really value its employees. Management put focus on the people who work for them and adopt a flexible approach to work that allows each person to work to their best, adapting the working environment/job to each individual’s needs/strengths.
  4. They offer clear career paths for development for each employee, as well as highly competitive remuneration packages.
  5. They always think long-term, they move quickly in decision making and they do things right, first time, every time.
  6. Every person that I have placed with this company over the last few years are delighted with the company, their jobs and their personal development, the majority of which have enjoyed at least one promotion since joining.

They truly are an impressive company in Galway and are therefore attracting the best talent in Galway for their open vacancies.
