WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR – YOU!

BVN is looking for a skilled and enthusiastic Financial Analyst. The role is in our Sydney Studio but is also part of, and supported by, the wider national finance and accounting team.

We have an experienced and dedicated group of finance and accounting professionals and are looking for someone to join to liaise directly with architecture project teams and office leadership to help projects run profitability and efficiently. This includes monthly billing, accounts receivable, costs analysis and tracking, performance reporting and forecasting.

We are also eager to improve processes so, in collaboration with BVN’s CFO, accountants and others, you would help develop and implement improvements.

This is a forward facing role and will involve regular interaction with project teams. Yes you will be required to key transactions but if you’re more comfortable doing a purely back office job this role is not for you.
