Senior Financial Accountant

About Jarden
We are New Zealand’s leading investment and advisory group and have supported exceptional people and ideas for nearly 60 years. In June 2019 we rebranded from First New Zealand Capital (FNZC) to Jarden – a name which better reflects our origins and long-standing tenure in the New Zealand Financial Markets. Jarden advises some of New Zealand’s largest public and private companies and high net worth individuals and families. Our areas of expertise are wealth management, investment banking, institutional equities, research and fixed income, carbon and FX sales trading. We are passionate about seeing our clients succeed, and when they choose Jarden, they get a partner that always endeavours to go above and beyond.

The Role
A key member of our Finance team based in Wellington, you will be working right across a diverse financial group that has also recently expanded into Australia.

Key responsibilities will comprise leading the Financial Statement reporting, Audit Management, and to a lesser extent tax, modelling (with some management accounting) and BI Reporting.

More generally, you will also provide insightful guidance, advice and leadership in an environment of change.

About You
You will have 3+ years of working as a Financial Accountant, you're a whizz at leading the preparation of complex financial statements and will also have great IFRS knowledge and experience. Your areas of expertise will include a strong focus on Reporting and Audit management. You are versatile across the board and have exposure to the full financial accountant remit.
  • Big 4 chartered accountant experience.
  • You will have an advanced working Excel knowledge.
  • You will be an excellent communicator, both written and verbal.
  • You will have great attention to detail, never missing a beat.
  • You will be a great team player and enjoy working with others.
  • You will (ideally) have some exposure to tax and BI experience, but this isn't a pre-requisite.
Ideally you will also come well versed in the world of financial markets but that's not essential - a general interest would be useful though.

In return we can offer you great company and team culture within our fast-growing firm, and exciting long-term career prospects. 

To pursue this opportunity please apply with a cover letter and CV. 

You must currently live and have the right to work in New Zealand.
