Finance Assistant

Salary: Competitive
Location: Newcastle HQ

We’re on the lookout for a Finance Assistant to join our team.

A key component of Connected Energy’s growth so far, and essential to our future success is the need for business intelligence. From a finance perspective this means having a thorough understanding at the granular level of the transactions driving the financials.

Role description

This is achieved in part through well designed and structured GL posting rules. The finance assistant role will be critical to this, ensuring the timely and accurate posting of all transactions to the finance system.

As our business continue to scale up, we are also extremely conscious of the need to constantly review evaluate and update our policies, processes and procedures ensuring they remain relevant and appropriate.

The ultimate objective is best practice. However, we don’t believe this something that can or should be attained once, but rather through a principle of continuous improvement. Again, the finance assistant will be intrinsic and proactive in this process.

What you’ll do

  • Day to day administration of the accounts payable and accounts receivable in-boxes
  • Principle processor of purchase invoices and triple match validation
  •  Liaise with supply chain to resolve purchase ordering issues and contribute to the efficient operation of goods and services inward.

  • Posting of bank transactions and weekly bank reconciliation
  • Monthly close of AR and AP ledgers
  • Support annual external audit
  • Support monthly management account and investor reporting requirements
  • Other ad hoc tasks as required

This role could be for you if:

  • Experience in a similar role within finance
  • Specific experience in the 2nd life battery sector is not necessary for this role. The most
    closely associated sectors where experience might be relevant are, manufacturing,
    construction/project management, technology or energy.
  • Potentially suitable for someone with an AAT level 3 or 4 qualification, or working toward
    one, alternatively a similar QBE equivalent
  • Team and action oriented; proactive in prioritising own workload and assigned areas of
    responsibility to others
  • Excellent time management and understanding of a monthly reporting cycle
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
