As Australia’s leading building and finance company, effective management is critical to everything we do. So we’re always on the lookout for great Human Resources specialists, Company Accountants and Account Assistants.
We often recruit for:
At ABN Group, accounts payable and receivable are crucial roles. We process hundreds of thousands of dollars every month, in incoming payments (e.g. from customers) and outgoing payments (e.g. to suppliers). So as an Account Assistant, you’ll need to be great with numbers, and enjoy working to strict processes and procedures. In other words, you must be system- and process-orientated, very thorough and a stickler for detail.
Monitoring the financial performance of the companies in the ABN Group is a big and very complex job. As an in-house accountant, you’ll handle profit and loss, budgeting, forecasting and treasury management, produce and analyse financial reports, and make recommendations on how the company can improve its financial status. You’ll also oversee the assets of the company including property, cash, investments and intellectual property.
Working from the ABN Group’s head office, you’ll be required to remain abreast of changes to legislation, adhere to strict accounting practices, and take action to ensure the company is compliant in all aspects of legislation and reporting.
As such, you’ll need strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and you must enjoy creating value, both within the accounts team and in other departments. And naturally, you’ll also need business acumen, keen self-awareness and the ability to garner trust and respect from stakeholders across the ABN Group.
Human Resource Managers
People are our most valuable asset so Human Resource Managers are a critical ingredient in our business. In this role, you’ll lead our thinking on people and culture, developing and implementing strategies to ensure the ABN Group remains a great place to work so we can continue to attract and retain the best people. You’ll also develop payroll and HR systems, facilitate training and development, succession and remuneration reviews, and handle HR and IR risk management matters.
To become an HR Manager, you’ll need 5-10 years’ professional HR experience. Not necessarily within the building industry, but you’ll definitely need an understanding of practices and trends within the industry, as well as in the broader business world. Naturally, you’ll also need great leadership and communication skills, emotional intelligence and self-awareness, and flexible, strategic thinking. And because you’ll be fully accountable for your own performance and that of your team, you’ll need to be prepared to take complete ownership. A relevant degree – ideally postgrad – will also help, although it’s not essential.
As an HR Coordinator, you’ll coordinate, develop and maintain HR administration systems, and provide support to the management team and other departments as required. This includes pre-screening, reviewing, shortlisting and replying to applicants, organising interviews, ensuring new employees have employment contracts, starter packs, white-cards and first-day buddies, organising induction days and maintaining employee information.
Learning and Development Adviser
At the ABN Group, we place great emphasis on providing ongoing professional development for our employees. We have a dedicated Learning and Development Adviser who administers the learning function, delivering quality, cost-effective programs to all ABN Group businesses. We offer targeted programs that assist staff in their business requirements and ensure our people grow and develop their career with the Group.
