Financial Accountant - Immediate Start

Employment Hero is one of Australia’s fastest growing tech companies with one mission in mind – to make employment easier and more rewarding for everyone. Our all-in-one people management solution helps small and medium sized businesses manage their HR, payroll, employee engagement and benefits from within one beautiful cloud-based platform. With over 5,000 businesses and 200,000 employees currently using Employment Hero, we pride ourselves on being Australia’s leading HR platform.

Since our launch in 2014, we’ve had enormous growth (think 100%+ YoY!). We’ve recently secured $45 million in our Series D funding round and are ready to take our local and international expansion to the next level.

We’re looking for the newest member of our finance team to join us as a Financial Accountant in Sydney. This is a newly created role where you’ll be working alongside our internal accountants, reporting directly to our Financial Controller. If you’re looking for a meaningful career where you’ll be challenged every day and supported throughout our journey, this could be the perfect role for you.

The ideal candidate must show ambition to grow, be a self-starter, and confident in their ability to keep up with Employment Hero’s fast pace. You will be responsible for running the day to day accounts while also maintaining compliance. You will have good decision making and critical thinking skills, as well as good commercial acumen. This role would be ideal for someone moving from their first role in public practice (hello Big4 / 2nd Tier) and looking to step up in their career.
