The Opportunity:

This is initially a 6 month contract working with the organisation’s Corporate Finance team. There is good potential for a permanent appointment for a high performer.

You have strong Excel skills and have prior experience managing a team. You consider yourself an all rounder and you enjoy variety in your day and week.

Relevant degree qualifications with a CA/CPA or strong progress towards this is essential. Existing experience with Government Accounting frameworks will be highly regarded as understanding of CBMS and Treasury processes are pre-requisite knowledge.

A Baseline Security clearance will be required and so current Australian Citizenship is mandatory.
