Are you a finance professional looking for a new challenge, who is analytical and thrives on problem solving in complex environments? Do you understand how finance teams need to embrace change due to their ever-changing environment? Are you keen to utilise your experience in a challenging and varied role which will allow you to work across diverse projects and clients to solve complex finance issues?

The Opportunity:

Our Te Whanganui-a-Tara/Wellington Accounting and Reporting Advisory team is looking for a Manager to join our dynamic team.

You will apply core finance and accounting knowledge in an advisory context to assist our clients in enabling the success of their finance function. Our projects, which span a wide range of industries, include:

·         Assisting clients with sustainability and performance reporting.
 
As a result of the diverse nature of the work you will often find yourself working with our other functions (tax, corporate finance, risk advisory, and consulting). You will develop effective business relationships, and both lead and manage teams.

You will have the opportunity to genuinely help our clients and make a real contribution as we grow by bringing your point of view and energy to the team. 
 
Enough about us, let’s talk about you. You are: 

·                 Someone who will enjoy working with clients to solve their problems, have a desire to learn, and thrive in a constantly changing landscape
·                 Good at problem solving and use of judgement to determine when to consult with the rest of the team on complex matters.
·                 Able to influence clients, teams, and individuals positively, leading by example and establishing confident relationships with senior people.
·                 A team player who understands how to collaborate effectively across Deloitte functions to deliver on client needs.
·                 A role model and recognizing others for the impact they make.
·                 Able to leverage and develope your technical accounting skills, along with your knowledge or what “good” looks like for a finance function.
·                 An excellent team player with strong project management, communication and stakeholder management skills. 
In addition, you will need:
·         Full membership of CAANZ (or equivalent) with 3+ years’ experience in NZ or globally.
·         Proven ability to manage projects and solve problems in the finance world – this could be through experience within Audit (ideally Big 4 or large firm experience), other professional service experience, or in industry.
·         Good technical accounting skills, and knowledge of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Public Benefit Entity International Public Sector Accounting Standards (PBE IPSAS).
·         To be self-motivated, results driven & client oriented.
·         A willingness to learn, and desire to work in a constantly changing environment
