Location: Swatragh

Crossland wishes to recruit a talented Experienced Accountant who will have responsibility for the Management and Financial Accounting of our two production sites located in Swatragh, Northern Ireland and Burnley, England.

This role requires an analytical, detail orientated and profit-focused individual who can utilise the information they produce to present recommendations on business operations, and where necessary, have the confidence to challenge the status quo to deliver profit upside for the group.

Whilst production of insightful monthly Management Accounts will be the primary requirement of this role; the company wants to recruit a self-starter who can then use this information to work directly and in collaboration with other key stakeholders on wider value add projects including production costings, capital spend programs and tenders.

This broad-ranging role will be based at our Head Office in Swatragh where the successful candidate will work directly with the Financial Controller and four other department colleagues. Flexible at-home working arrangements will be considered, subject to business need, after a satisfactory induction, training and company familiarisation period.
