Job Location: Sydney CBD, Inner West & Eastern Suburbs
Employer: Nostos Search
Full time

About the Business:

Founded in 1958, the Zauner Group has grown to become a formidable business in the construction sector, not only in the Albury region, but across Eastern Australia. With a history of landmark projects, innovative design and an enviable focus on safety, they have continued to grow and diversify their portfolio. The business also holds blossoming interests in Healthcare and established Aviation and Agriculture business units. 

Due to their incumbent CFO joining the Board and moving into a new phase of their career, an exceptional opportunity has arisen to join this dynamic and growing business.


The Role:

Reporting into the MD and based from Albury in NSW, the selected CFO will take the primary role in managing and communicating the financial position of the Group. Furthermore, the CFO is expected and encouraged to take an active role in the business operations, from working with the wider Executive Leadership, visiting key sites and harnessing broader commercial outcomes to drive quality growth within the Group.

The CFO will lead a small but dedicated team and also liaise with the Board. Given the current CFO joining the Board from this role, they will also gain rare support in the early phase of their role.


The Candidate:

The CFO role focuses on several areas, requiring a range of experience: 

  • The successful candidate for this role will be CA or CPA Qualified.
  • The successful candidate will have a range of experience but would certainly require strong commercial experience with a foundation of accounting from the practice environment.
  • Extensive experience managing a finance team and a demonstrable ability to partner with the MD and the Executive team and contribute to Group strategy.
  • The CFO will also bring a hands on approach to both the finance function and the wider commercial operational aspects of the business.
  • The CFO will also be a flexible and adaptable character, with a proven ability to work in a dynamic and mission driven environment and curiosity to grow their remit.
  • Zauner are open to the applicant looking to secure their first CFO role, transitioning from a senior Finance role.


Application Information:

This role is based out of Zauner Group’s Head Office in Albury, NSW

The role offers an Executive level base salary commensurate with a CFO role in an equivalently sized business.

The CFO needs to be based in Albury, and this shall be assessed early within the application process.
