Your new company
This fast-paced private equity firm, based in the heart of Sydney CBD, are looking for an experienced Assistant Accountant to join their friendly team. The role sits in a finance team of 5, reporting to the Financial Controller and working closely with the Fund Manager. Starting remotely, you will be given exceptional training and will be involved in some exciting new system projects too.

Your new role
Working in a small finance team, you will be given a breadth of responsibilities, including the mentorship of a part-time intern. This role will suit someone who can hit the ground running but also provides a varied scope of work and involvement in projects that will keep you busy and challenged. The main responsibilities will be:
  • Accounts payable and expense management
  • Bank and balance sheet reconciliations
  • Monthly journal entries and maintenance of general ledger
  • Cash flow forecasting
  • Preparing investment reports and maintaining fund investor registers
  • Managing investor queries and maintaining an excellent level of service
  • Managing fixed asset register
  • Assisting with preparation of BAS and FBT
What you'll need to succeed
You will have at least 3 years experience in a similar role and be confident liaising with stakeholders and clients. Your background working in a private equity/fund management will see you succeed in this busy and varied role. You will have strong reconciliation and reporting skills, with a high attention to detail. Your time management skills will allow you to expertly prioritise different tasks. Experience in an accounts system migration project would be highly regarded, though not essential. Experience using Oracle, Netsuite, Peoplesoft or similar will be well-suited to the role and will allow you to pick up the processes quickly from home. CPA/CA qualification would be desirable, though not essential.

What you'll get in return
Salary of $75-90k + super. Starting remotely with flexibility with working hours where possible. The important thing here will be a team and culture fit - they are a chatty and friendly bunch! This role is a 10 month fixed-term contract, where you will accrue annual leave/sick leave.
