At ABN, 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 ABN’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 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 ABN remains a great place to work, so we continue to attract and retain the best people. You’ll also develop payroll and HR systems, facilitate training & development, succession and remuneration reviews, and handle HR and IR risk management matters.
To become an ABN 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 & Development Manager
At ABN, we place great emphasis on ongoing professional development for our employees. We have a dedicated Learning and Development Manager who administers the learning function, delivering quality, cost-effective programs to all ABN businesses. Targeted programs that assist staff in their business requirements and ensure our people grow and develop their career with the Group.
