POSTED ON July 13, 2019 @ 8:56 am

Our Club is looking for a talented, hands-on, hard-working and enthusiastic Financial Controller to join our small but friendly and dedicated Club Administration Team in a permanent full-time salaried role.

This role would suit a recent graduate (2-5 years), who is an educated professional looking to take on the challenges of improving and modernizing the Club’s financial operations and working closely with the General Manager and Club Treasurer to ensure that the financial aspects of the Club are efficient and well run.

If you are a well-educated finance professional with experience in an Accounting practice or Corporate environment but are looking to take a step up into a role with more responsibility and more of a focus on helping to run and improve a business, this could be the job for you. Also, if you have a passion for golf and would value being able to work in the industry with perhaps the ambition to follow a future career path up to a Golf Club General Manager at some point in the future, this role would be an ideal starting point.

Our Club also offers stable, attractive hours with limited overtime. Club experience would be preferred but is not essential.

Reporting directly to the General Manager, the Financial Controller is responsible for the management and efficient running of the financial operations of the Club.

  • Great Location of Bayside Bonbeach (Melbourne SE)
  • Friendly & Welcoming “Club” Member Atmosphere
  • Attractive lifestyle – limited overtime, normal weekly hours. (~40-45)
  • The platform & environment to showcase your passion, skills and desire to improve current systems, processes and procedures.

What you would be doing

You will work in a small administration team and be specifically responsible for financial record keeping, reporting and accountability, cash flow management and investment, cost control and budgeting, office and financial administration with a focus on improving and maintaining policies & procedures, supporting the provision of a safe and secure working environment, and computer and information technology.

You will be tertiary qualified with a CA/CPA status being highly desirable. You will have proven accounting experience and possess:

  • Outstanding financial record keeping and financial management skills
  • Computer literacy including accounting and electronic POS systems
  • Advanced MS Excel skills
  • The ability to work both independently and with a Club “team environment

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, well presented and team orientated person who is willing to demonstrate commitment in the pursuit of financial management and member service excellence.

A competitive remuneration package commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered. Our Club offers staff salaries commensurate with the Club’s size and financial resources. Whilst higher remuneration packages may be available elsewhere, we are looking for a Financial Controller who values a small but passionate team environment as well as the lifestyle and learning opportunity advantages that our Club offers.

Who we’re looking for
