Job Description

Our client is a Brisbane based success story.  Successfully manufacturing and distributing more than 1,500 products across Australia and New Zealand, they lead in product development, innovative customer solutions to a specialist market and have a reputation for exceptional customer service.  Privately owned, with a turnover of circa $100M, they operate two factories in Australia and have an office in New Zealand.  We are seeking suitably experienced candidates for the role of Chief Financial Officer, reporting to the Managing Director, and collaborating with an experienced and committed executive leadership team.
Believing in streamlined approaches that deliver exceptional customer outcomes, the ideal Chief Financial Officer (CFO) will drive a shared services approach, advising and engaging with leaders across the business to provide insight, support decision-making, and drive efficiency.

  • Have relatable taxation, FX and Transfer pricing knowledge and experience
  • Be highly collaborative and demonstrated experience in establishing a shared services approach to a multisite operation
  • Have knowledge of financial management as it relates to manufacturing and distribution
  • Have strong IT/Technology capability with ERP experience

The CFO leads a small, high-quality team and will be required to provide strategic leadership whilst being hands-on as required.  If you are seeking a role that actively contributes strategically and operationally, enjoy the dynamic of a privately owned and agile environment, please apply with your resume and a cover letter that outlines how you meet the requirements listed.
