Management Accounts Assistant, Hull

At Jacksons, we make great bread and deliver great service, but to do that we need great people!

Are you a finance professional looking for a new challenge in which to utilise your commercial awareness and develop a career within a fantastic business?

This is an exciting new role, integral to the finance team and will provide accurate and timely reporting to aid decision making for our commercial and operations function.

As it stands, this is a fixed term opportunity for an initial period of 6 months. 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Sales analysis and reconciliation of stock (both raw materials and finished goods) to reporting systems
  • Maintaining receipt records and pricing for PPV reporting
  • Labour variance reporting and supply chain cost analysis
  • Daily KPI reporting of operational performance
  • Maintaining costings of all live SKUs to capture raw materials, labour and logistics
  • Assist the Operations Accountant in providing accurate new product costings in a timely manner
  • Maintaining overriders and rebates for all customers, providing a full reconciliation to the balance sheet on a monthly basis

About You

Given the nature of the role you will have excellent attention to detail and will need basic Excel skills. You will be tenacious and innovative, being able to problem solve and constantly look for better ways of working. You will also be a great communicator, having the ability to form proactive working relationships at all levels and across departments.

Ideally you will be currently studying towards an AAT qualification or will be looking to start this very soon.

Why Jacksons?

Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of five food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people. We also have a pub!

We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We recently developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll, wrap and ciabatta production.

We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s Yorkshire’s Champion”.

We’re building a new site in Corby, one of the largest investments our Group has ever made, and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do.

2018 is an exciting time to join us!
