  • Opportunity due to an internal promotion

Do you want to have a career in Finance?
We are a fast moving, ever changing, multi award-winning franchise of New Zealand’s largest and most trusted Real Estate brand. Did we say we were the biggest franchise? No? Well we are. We have an abundance of talent and we want you to be part of it.

We are also based on the North Shore, which as we all know is a great place to live.

Just because you count the beans, doesn’t mean you wear cardigans and fret about spending money.

Your job will be to prepare documents leading to disbursement of deposits to vendors. Invoicing of vendor paid marketing will also be a large part of this role. This involves liaison with internal stakeholders and outside solicitors. You will also prepare monthly income reports, which lead to reward and recognition of over 300 sales consultants. Dealing with so many diverse personalities does require the patience of a saint, the tact of a diplomat and possessing the ability to convey the correct message, both verbally and written, in a sound and mature way. A positive fun loving attitude is a must for this role!

As a growing company, we love myth busters, people who question the why and more importantly why not? Send us examples of how you have improved processes in your career however big or small.

So what do you need? Finance and/or Accounting qualifications are handy, up to tertiary will do for this role. With the right attitude you will learn more on the job anyway. A decent level of Excel is also needed, nothing with formulae that extends over your second screen, yes you will have two screens. You will also be comfortable in taking data from one system and inputting into the other. It’s not very technical, but an eye for detail is needed to ensure that you don’t miss a thing.

Bottom line? We are here to serve our customers, internal or external. Belief in this ethos is perhaps the number one thing that we will be looking for. This finance team does not act in isolation with the business, we are front and centre and of course we celebrate the successes as they continue to arrive.

So if you’ve been looking for a new opportunity and you still haven’t found what you’re looking for, re-read the advertisement and if you want to grasp this opportunity, send in your CV and cover letter and we will see what happens.
