Account Manager for a large FMCG company. Home based and must be qualified or part qualified accountant (ACCA, ACA, CIMA). Get in touch with Joe Wells at REED Finance to apply.

£35k - £40k + £6600 car allowance.

My client, a large wine maker, is looking for an Account Manager to join their team. This exciting role requires a hands-on, flexible and personable accountant who is looking to move away from a desk based position and bring their skills to a more client facing role. You will be required to manage the relationships with some of the largest retailers in the country and be able to interpret data to ensure the supply and sales requirements are maintained seamlessly; proving to be a vital link between the commercial and production teams.

Your clients will be providing detailed information in the form of spreadsheets, so a strong grasp of Excel, Pivot Tables and Forecasting is a must, and those with an analytical mindset will be at a strong advantage alongside those that have spent time as a management accountant.

As a home based role, you will need to have the ability to work remotely and have a self disciplined and motivated attitude. Experience of this is not necessary, and support will always be provided with a network of account managers across the country. There will also be a requirement to travel to the head office in France, once a month.

As the role progresses, there may be a requirement for the successful candidate to take on the tax responsibilities, so any knowledge of Import Duty would be a significant advantage.

Must haves:

Qualified or Part Qualified Accountant (ACCA, ACA, CIMA)

Be able to travel across the country, largely around London, to key clients and maintain key relationships with important stakeholders.

Have an excellent eye for interpreting data and have a familiarity with excel spreadsheets, forecasting, pivot tables and supply chain.

Be personable and flexible in your approach to key stakeholder relationships.

Benefits:

Home based: broadband - landline and mobile expenses full paid.

550 pm car allowance plus fuel allowance

Competitive pension package

25 days holiday

Monthly visits to France head office

Expense account / company credit card

Weekly meetings with key client near London and UK commercial team

Hours 8.00-5.00 mon-fri

Flexible approach to travel (eg flights and travel outside of normal office hours )
