Oil Accountant

If you have worked as an Accountant in the Oil industry, but want to secure a position that can offer you stability and longevity, then this is an ideal opportunity for you as this is a place where staff are loyal and make long term commitments.

You will need a minimum of 3, ideally 5 years experience within the industry so you have an understanding of Joint Venture Accounting and dealing with Other Business Partners; Sun accounting would also be an advantage as when new projects come online there is a need to set up the accounting for them. These roles always demand precision, a strong academic leaning and the ability to deliver a high level of technical accounting skill; due to the Joint Venture nature of projects, you are constantly representing your company at an International level and excellent communication skills are also a must.

Working at a prestigious city location, you will have the benefit of working alongside a small but influential management team coupled with the benefits present in a Large International Group. At location you will work in a small accounts department, reporting to FC and Directorate level. You must be confident at presenting information to senior management yet happy to monitor hands on financial accounting and more junior staff.

The role is very varied covering JV Accounting, monthly management accounts, statutory accounts, budgets, variance analysis etc. Yet due to the size of the accounts department, you must adopt a shirt sleeved approach, posting journals and assisting more junior staff with account reconciliations if necessary.

There are also opportunities to get involved in new projects; as new assets come online, there will be a need to review and set up the cost parameters and help collate and anticipate what management reports will be necessary. The FC is also very flexible and happy to have you shadow other aspects including company secretarial matters etc.

So if you are Qualified Accountant or a Part Qualified / QBE with extensive experience in the area, then this can offer the stability that many oil companies lack at present. We are working on a sole agency basis and interviews will be conducted ASAP. Please submit your CV and feel free to follow up by phone for a more informed discussion.
