Salary Guide


Rutherford Cross is pleased to be exclusively partnered with a highly regarded construction business to appoint the newly created position of Management Accountant. Reporting to an experienced Regional Finance Director / Part-time Finance Manager, this represents a fantastic opportunity to join a leading UK housebuilder in a commercially and operationally focused Regional Management Accounting role.

Ideally, we are looking to engage with newly / recently qualified individuals (ICAS, ACCA, CIMA) either in practice or industry or also, happy to consider those at the finalist level ready to take a step up into a qualified level role. Due to the stakeholder-facing element of this role, we need people with good communication skills who are keen to build relationships both across the business and externally.

The role itself is broad and offers varied management accounting, operations, and commercial exposure as most of the transactions are completed at a centralized SSC in England.

Key Responsibilities fall into 3 major categories:

Month End Accounting

  • Undertake regional balance sheet reconciliations and own the resolution of issues
  • Process journals and ensure appropriate approvals are in place
  • Support the review of all budget and forecast variances through the production of monthly variance reports

Cash Management

  • Support the region's cash forecasting through the coordination of all aspects of cash reporting and the identification of risks and opportunities for both revenue and cost
  • Support the preparation of regional reviews by providing timely cash reporting and variance analysis at a regional and site level
  • Work closely with the QS’s and Site Teams to understand the cash requirements of a scheme to ensure all forecasting is robust and sites’ cash usage is understood and progresses as planned
  • Work with the Commercial department to ensure the robust forecasting of grant funding and payments from Registered Providers, including the tracking and reclaiming of retentions
  • Support the central finance team and treasury with all ad-hoc cash reporting requests and provide the team with timely and accurate information

Profit Management

  • Update sales price analysis on a weekly basis and provide the regional management team with a forward forecast of price variance based on current sales releases and achieved prices. Identify risks and opportunities
  • Support and challenge the sales team in the forecasting of legal completions in order to identify opportunities for over-delivery and risks of under-delivery
  • Produce reports on monthly marketing spend by site versus budget / forecast and review with sales teams to challenge and reforecast. Identify opportunities for savings

Please contact Harry Young at Rutherford Cross on 07494 280 500 / [email protected] for an initial confidential discussion, or for more information on this opportunity.
