We put members first in everything we do and are committed to the recruitment, development and support of a diverse workforce that share our values of Energy, Integrity, Generosity of Spirit and Excellent Outcomes.

Here’s where you come in…

To support the growth of AustralianSuper we are seeking a Management Accountant who will be responsible for the preparation of management reports, including decision support analysis at a business unit, department and enterprise level. This role represents an outstanding opportunity to liaise with multiple stakeholders across the Fund; from senior managers to operational staff; challenging assumptions, identifying trends and recommending solutions.

In this role you will manage the month end process for assigned departments, closing the general ledger, producing accruals, reviewing reconciliations, and delivering financial reports with commentary. You will also run system-based activity based costing calculations, adapting the model as required.

Working with the Senior Management Accountant, you will assist with the preparation of the annual budget and forecasts; reviewing submissions, updating templates and coordinating the consolidation process.

You’ll need…

CA or CPA qualified, you have sound analytical skills; and specifically the ability to identify when data and analysis is materially incorrect; and then design and implement solutions. You are an advanced Excel user and familiar with various accounting packages.

We are looking for an accountant with wide ranging experience and the ability to work in complex organisational structures. You are consultative by nature and enjoy influencing stakeholders of all levels of seniority with a view to delivering commercial insights and value.
