The Business

My client is a privately-owned internet retail business with an established customer base and further growth plans.

The business is in the middle of an improvement programme specifically looking at sales analysis as well as creating a suite of informative reports.

The company is based in Manchester City Centre with good transport links.

The Role

Separate from the day to day running of the finance department you will be tasked with creating meaningful analysis from the website's sales data. From this you will create a suite of reports for senior management offering insight into sales trends and pricing.

The role can be part or full time over the course of 1-2 months.

Key elements of the project are as follows:

  • Liaising with finance and non-finance stakeholders across the business to gather reporting requirements.
  • Manipulating high volume sales data into a workable format.

  • Adapting Xero accounts software and Excel to create a suite of informative reports

  • Working with the in-house IT Manager.

The Candidate

The successful candidate will be a hands-on management accountant with a background in systems and/or report writing.

You do not need an IT skillset to adequately complete this project however you will be comfortable navigating around accounting software and Excel.

Accounting qualifications are not required although a background in management accounting roles in SME businesses is essential.

Those with exposure to retail businesses and online channels are of particular interest.

If you are interested in applying please send your CV with a contact number and details of your desired remuneration.
