CAREERS AT BELLROY
Financial Accountant

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy is a global business with a bold growth plan. Since we sat around a kitchen table in Bells Beach in 2010 to design our first wallet, we’ve grown to 96 staff across multiple offices, more than 1100 stockists in 50 countries and diversified into bags, tech cases and work accessories. We’re seeking an accountant to bring their organisation, accounting and problem-solving skills to our expanding team.

As our new accountant, you’d be responsible for completing some balance sheet reconciliations and preparing monthly management reports. You’d assist in ensuring our environment of strong financial controls is maintained, making process updates where appropriate to keep our systems working as smoothly and effectively as possible. You’d report to our Finance Manager, and work with our Chief Financial Officer and entire finance team to produce accurate financial statements that help the business continue its global growth path.

In return, we’d offer you an inclusive, innovative team to learn from, the tools you need to do your thing, and the support you need to flourish.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

You’ve had a couple of years experience as an accountant and you’re looking to take on a new challenge.

You’re proactive, smart and logical. Accuracy is ingrained in your DNA – you instinctively check facts and double check assumptions, when others would trust the same information on face value.

When things are in order, you’re in your happy place. And you are comfortable to sit deep in the process, as long as you have systems and technology to support you. Deadlines spur you on even more, and you don’t mind getting your hands dirty to get to a solution. You can prepare monthly reports with precision, accuracy and timeliness... every time. You thrive in a collaborative environment and are happy to help your team get the job done – whether that’s through providing clear instructions as you delegate a task, or by stepping in to help someone who is having trouble. You take pride in your work, and get more joy out of knowing something is right, than just knowing you can tick it off your list.

You’d come in to this team with energy and a thirst for collaboration, agile working methods and steady growth. Because that’s what Bellroy is all about.


IF YOU WERE HERE LAST WEEK, YOU HAVE:

  • Participated in the preparation of our monthly financial statements and the month-end process
  • Worked with one of our department managers to ensure accuracy of monthly expense reporting and forecasts
  • Prepared balance sheet reconciliations
  • Noticed a process that could be improved and made some adjustments
  • Assisted the Finance Manager and CFO with an ad hoc project such as a profitability analysis or research into ledgers and systems required for more detailed profitability reporting

THESE ARE SOME SKILLS YOU MUST POSSESS

  • An accounting degree, (CPA/CA is an advantage but not required)
  • A sound financial background with relevant financial accounting experience
  • Ability to prioritise tasks and, to put it bluntly, get sh*t done
  • Strong spreadsheet skills
  • Excellent oral and written communication
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a team within a fast-paced agile environment
