About The RoleEleven million customers a week. Over 500 supermarkets. New, exciting wholesale ventures with Amazon and Motor Fuels Group. Just some of the reasons why now’s a great time to make it as a Management Accountant at Morrisons.

We’re passionate about giving customers good quality, fresh food every day. And we’re always striving to provide a better shopping experience. That means our business is constantly evolving. In fact, it’s becoming bigger – and more interesting – every day. We’re already the UK’s second largest food manufacturing business, with a huge logistics team. And with online growth and new initiatives on the cards, you’ll be supporting a FTSE 100 retailer that’s unlike any other.

Finance is crucial to our success and you’ll play your part by taking on a range of key tasks. Annual budgets; quarterly forecasting; balance sheet controls and reconciliations: you’ll tackle all the above in our Finance team. You’ll also be in charge of month–end processes, including accruals and prepayments, generation of P&Ls, variance analysis and commentary for management accounts and board packs. Smarter, simpler approaches are on our agenda, so if you can improve efficiency, you will.

You love being part of a team and working with colleagues within and outside Finance. You’ve worked on monthly management accounts packs before and you’ve got the IT skills required: Advanced Excel and ideally Oracle too. You combine your sound technical knowledge with good organisation. With regular deadlines to meet, you’ll know how to manage your time well.About The CompanyWith an eye on the future and our finger on the pulse of what’s going on in our business, we partner with all of our teams and play a big part in the big decisions.

We support change programmes and capital expenditure projects. We provide business leaders with vital management information and analysis. As well as looking after our cash, accounts and working capital, we also control costs, produce forecasts, deliver insight and manage supplier reporting and supplier payments. There’s never a dull moment.

Our aim to offer more of what matters extends to our employees too. Join us and you can expect to enjoy great career prospects and a very competitive pay and benefits package. In addition to an attractive salary, we offer a discount card for you and two for friends or family members giving you 10% off your shopping in Morrisons. We also offer company share options, a highly competitive pension scheme, Life Assurance and more besides.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
