Cocoon Group Services Opportunities

Accounts Specialist

Accounts Payable and Receivable

Cocoon Group Services builds homes that people with a disability want to live in.

Currently several have opened and more than 50 are under construction in Adelaide. So our South Australian division needs an accounts specialist.

Reporting to the State Manager, this is a job for a gun bean counter who can juggle the intricacies of the NDIS, and preferably has done so before.

Like any business, income is essential, and this is the person who makes that happen. That’s the key part of this role. When you’re not billing the government, you’ll be reconciling accounts for 62 properties. Where was that light bulb fitted? Who ordered that tub of ice-cream? Whose electricity bill is that?

At this stage, it will be part time, but we anticipate a transition to full time over the next few months.

We’d be impressed by some sort of financial qualification, or perhaps recent, similar experience.

Don’t let that put you off if you have all the skills but not the paperwork, we’ll still consider you.

Experience with Xero is likely to help. But more than anything, we want someone who shares our vision of providing people with a disability with, affordable, suitable, top class accommodation.
