Are you a management accountant, or a part-qualified AAT/ACA/ACCA/CIMA who`s always challenging the norm? Love nothing more than working under pressure and doing everything in your power to exceed expectations?

You`re in luck! An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Management Accountant to join a site start-up in Bedford area in our E-commerce Business Unit.

Because you`re already well-versed in everything finance, you`ll know that your role will be to ensure the integrity, accuracy and timeliness of the management accounts. But you`ll also have other things on your radar - you will focus on developing a strong partnership with the wider depot team as well as the onsite customer. You will support the Finance Manager and Site Manager on ad-hoc finance tasks, and be responsible for preparing the monthly accounts, monitoring and reporting on weekly costings, and preparing the monthly packs (including cost analysis).

And there`s no dull moment, as you`ll also be tasked with supporting with budget and forecasting, balance sheet reconciliations, SOX compliance, monthly journal postings and liaising directly with External Audit regarding half year and year end statutory requirements.

So who are you? Well for a start, you`ve been working in finance (at a similar level) and you`re extremely resilient. You`re a go getter, always striving to drive for change, and keen to own your own development. You go the extra mile, you`re very logical with great time management skill. You`ll recognise the importance of engagement on site so you`ll be the first to put your hand up to take part in any fun at work and DC activities to promote the culture.

If you have what it takes to transform the future, with a company ethos of `you grow, we grow`, then we`d love to hear from you. All applications receive a response.

XPO provides cutting-edge supply chain solutions to the world`s most successful companies, including Disney, Pepsi, Toyota and many others. We`re the fastest-growing transportation company on the Fortune 500 list and we`re just getting started.

We offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), as well as the option to buy additional days. You`ll have access to a variety of high street discounts, as well as childcare vouchers, cycle to work scheme, a workplace pension and many other perks.
