Following a recent review, the Senior Management Accountant is a newly created role that will work closely with two Financial Controllers primarily with financial management and reporting responsibilities, and a supporting role in financial planning. The role will work alongside the Finance Officer who has oversight of the processes and systems for accurate recording of records and transactions.
