Your new role
You'll be joining the organisation at an exciting time of continued growth.
Undertaking the role of Operations Finance Supervisor, you'll be conducting a key role for the EMEA region of the business, utilising strong business partnering skills with various sites across the region, demonstrating a strength in standard costing and variance analysis.

Reporting into an off-site Operations Finance Manager, you'll be undertaking a relatively autonomous role, responsible for the team supervision and support in maintenance of the costing, inventory and manufacturing data within Oracle, posting monthly journals, process improvements and liaison with auditors.

Responsibilities include:

  • Co-ordinate the development of annual standard costs for all raw materials, Gross Operating Margin, and purchased Finished Goods for EMEA
  • Assist the Operations Accounting Manager to coordinate, train, and participate in the annual physical inventory process at Manufacturing facilities
  • Maintain integrity of Inventory on the general ledger, reviewing monthly balance sheet reconciliations prepared by direct reports for completeness and accuracy

  • Work with various departments to ensure tasks are completed as required (Business Unit Finance, Supply Chain, Global Procurement, HQ Merchandise Control).
  • Coordinate the review of quarterly material standard cost updated for all raw materials, GOM, and purchased Finished Goods.
  • Manage the activities of operations accounting staff, which include the monthly financial analysis of operational variances: absorption, usage, purchase price variance, and revaluation.
  • Maintain oversight of cycle counts programs across sites
  • Review monthly shrinkage for reasonableness, prepare monthly summary of shrink results to help identify and correct root cause issues
  • Assist with monthly forecast and annual budgets
  • Perform ad-hoc costing analysis to contribute to maximising profit
  • Improve processes and waste elimination,
  • Understand and comply with month end close timetable.

What you'll need to succeed
You will ideally be a qualified accountant, and will demonstrate key strengths in standard costing, variance analysis and business partnering (ideally cross-border).
You'll be confident with the use of ERP systems (Oracle would be of benefit but is not essential), alongside Excel and Access.

A background from manufacturing of similar industry is a requirement of this role.

What you'll get in return
Salary: £50,000 p/a + 5% bonus
25 days holiday entitlement (plus bank holidays)
Flexible working available - up to 2 days from home
Generous pension contribution
