About Orange Sky Australia
Orange Sky Australia (OSA) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on the provision of free laundry and showers to people experiencing homelessness. We're growing, and fast. Since 2014, we've expanded our reach to every capital city in Australia and most recently, across the waters to Auckland, too.
Through a network of vans and with the help of almost 2,000 volunteers across Australia, our mobile service is a catalyst for positive, genuine connections. We’re driven, dedicated, insanely ambitious and a little unconventional. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We work hard and ‘get it done’, but always make time to celebrate each other’s success.
If another day at the office spent counting down the minutes to go home and battle peak hour traffic ready for another day tomorrow crunching numbers into excel spreadsheets in a room full of people who don’t even know your name makes you cringe, this might be the opportunity for you.
We’re always striving to do things better so we can continue to support our friends on the street and we’re looking for an Assistant Accountant at our Brisbane HQ to support the CFO in this newly created role. We don’t just want a good accountant, we want a flexible go-getter who thinks outside the box and makes things happen. You won’t be afraid to get your hands dirty with the day to day stuff, and you won’t be a clock watching “oh, that’s not my job” type.
This mid-level role will be very hands-on, an excellent mentor and support to our Finance Officer, and the CFO’s wingman/woman with the creative freedom to just get things done (no micromanaging here!). You’ll bring strong management accounting experience and skills and maybe you’ll even have New Zealand and US accounting experience to support our international expansion, but if not, you’ll be keen to get across it.
Day to day, you’ll be responsible for:
Overseeing AP/AR and assisting when needed
Balance sheet recs
Assisting with budgets and forecasts
Implementing system and process improvements
Drafting financial policies and procedures
Researching and advising on technical matters
Assisting with annual external audit
Continuous improvement of financial reporting and analysis
No day is ever the same, but you can ALWAYS count on the support of an amazing team.
Part-Time, Full-Time, we don’t mind! We can be flexible initially for the right person, although this position will ultimately become Full-Time.
