Your new company
G&W UK/Europe Region offers a range of logistical solutions based around its three core service platforms of Rail, Road and Terminals. G&W is unique in the rail industry, owning or leasing more than 122 freight railroads organised in nine locally managed operating regions with 8,000 employees serving 3,000 customers. We have acquired over 100 railroads since 2000 including UK companies Freightliner and Pentalver. G&W are currently creating a new Shared Service Centre in Birmingham city centre and as a result are now recruiting for a significant number of Management Accountant positions.
Your new role
Reporting into the Finance Operations Manager as part of this newly created team you will be responsible for production of the monthly management accounts, variance analysis and associated balance sheet reconciliations. You will be part of a large finance team and every member of the team will be responsible for driving process improvements, increasing efficiency and developing working relationships across the business.
Our client is ideally seeking candidates with experience from a large and complex shared services environment (or similar), however, this is about securing the best people in the market and as long as you have excellent communication skills and a pro-active attitude with some management accounting experience it is worth applying.
The transition to Birmingham offers a huge opportunity to drive change through our FSSC operation. You must possess a can-do attitude being part of a team creating something new with great opportunities to excel. Passionate about doing the right thing, you will thrive working in a challenging environment, where significant opportunities exist to improve the way we work.
We anticipate that our staff will all have a voice and will openly feedback and challenge management where required, to ensure that an open and transparent working environment is created. All of our staff will take full accountability for their efforts and delivery, as well as their personal development.
The organisation is going through major change as we invest heavily in systems whilst reviewing our processes to ensure we keep things as simple and as effective as possible for our stakeholders.
If you have the right mindset and skills to help us create a shared services operation that will evolve, develop and grow over the next few years then join us on our journey.
