Think you’ve got what it takes?

The right person for the job will have a BCom in Accounting, Finance or Business paired with 5+ years of relevant experience. If you have previous working experience in an international environment with foreign currency, this will definitely put you a step ahead of the rest!

Your responsibilities will include preparing monthly vendor reconciliations for construction suppliers, creating all required project status reports for the Project Manager and internal management, overseeing project cashflow – monitoring both the forecast and actual cashflow of the project, and liaising with the Project Manager, procurement and engineering to create and maintain the project cost forecast on an ongoing basis.
