Currently recruiting an Interim Project Accountant for a large family owned business based in Hull, this position is a brand new role purely focusing on manufacturing and operational efficiencies. The role is an interim position for a 3-5 month period but this could be extended depending on various internal projects.

  • Work with the General Manager and finance team to implement improvements in visibility over the manufacturing cost of products in the business. The first part of this role is to ensure that the material cost of production is accurately reported, with a standard costing basis used. The second stage will be to implement standard costing for direct labour.
  • Review the use of difference systems in the business and review effectiveness and whether efficiencies in the current process can be achieved.
  • Review the monthly balance sheet and profit and loss accounts, prior to submission to Group and reporting to the Group head office to given reporting deadlines
