Factory Accountant

Factory Accountant

Food Manufacturing

County Durham


M-F, 08:30-17:00, on site.

This is the finance role that will get you away from your desk.

Unlike most roles, you will be encouraged to get out of your chair, away from your spreadsheets and out onto the factory floor.

You’ll act as the co-pilot and finance support to Operations, Engineering, Quality and all factory functions as you look to drive continuous improvement, support on project work and through data, identify areas that can deliver financial savings.

Although you will report to the Finance Director, you will be autonomous in your own work, set your own agenda and bring results how you see fit.

While it is a large business, it isn’t one you can hide in. You will be visible, as will your impact, and your pro-activity, natural curiosity and drive to make improvements will see you develop through the business.


It is critical that you are a pro-active, go-getting individual who takes it upon themselves to seek improvement. A background of being around operational improvement in a factory would be ideal as well as experience with SAP.

You will have a background in accountancy, specifically within a manufacturing environment, where you have been hands on in supporting the various on-site teams. Any relevant accounting qualifications (CIMA / AAT / Degree) are desirable.

If you are interested to find out more and discuss, please apply below and we will reach out for a confidential conversation.
