Assistant Accountant



About the Company:


Snacking has a bad rap. Most snack foods aren’t made in a way that’s any good for you or the planet. We’re here to change all that.


Serious Food Co is a premium, better for you, snack food business and is best known for its inaugural product launch ‘Serious Popcorn’ in 2015. Serious Food Co leads with innovation and has developed and launched several other brand extensions that include Serious Crackers, Serious Cookies and Serious Seeds. Serious Food Co products are sold across both independent and grocery channels including export markets.



About the Role:


This is a broad and busy Assistant Accountant role that will see you responsible for a wide range of accounting tasks,  working closely with a virtual CFO and reporting to the Director of the business.


This role will give you the opportunity to be across all aspects of the financial management of the business!  


Some of your responsibilities will include:


  • AP, AR and reconciliations
  • GST and Statutory filing
  • Cashflow reporting
  • Weekly payroll
  • Month end and year end preparations
  • Financial reporting



About You:


This role is going to suit an experienced Assistant Accountant, who has worked in a similar role previously.


This company has an all-hands on deck culture, so you will be happy to roll up your sleeves and pick up ad-hoc tasks when required. 


You will have strong attention to detail, great communication skills and be highly organised to meet deadlines.


Strong excel skills are a must, previous experience working with Xero would be an advantage.


This is a fantastic role for someone who really wants to take ownership of a busy and challenging role!
