About The Role

We’re looking for an experienced Accountant to join our Property team, at our head office in Bradford.

Eleven million customers a week. Nearly 500 supermarkets. New, exciting ventures with Amazon, McColl's and Rontec, and Ocado. Just some of the reasons why now’s a great time to make it as an Accountant here at Morrisons.

We’re passionate about giving customers good quality, fresh food every day. And we’re always striving to provide a better shopping experience. That means our business is constantly evolving. In fact, it’s becoming bigger – and more interesting – every day. We’re already the UK’s second largest food manufacturing business and 90% of our products are produced by us across our 17 manufacturing sites, and a huge logistics team with 6 RDCs. And with online growth and new initiatives on the cards, you’ll be supporting a FTSE 100 retailer that’s unlike any other.

Finance is crucial to Morrisons’ success. You will be more than just a number here at Morrisons. You will be a true business partner to the wider business undertaking analysis, and providing commercial advice to decision makers and key stakeholders. Your influence will truly matter and make a difference – you will drive change and efficiency within your team.

The Property Accountant role is responsible for the management of the accounting, reporting and forecasting of over £500m of annual Property costs, including Rent, Rates and Utilities.  The main purpose of the role is to provide financial control but business partnering is also key.  The role will support Property stakeholders to ensure that costs are well understood and managed and provide finance support to a number of exciting capital expenditure and productivity projects.  There will also be interactions with Group Finance, the wider Finance team, auditors and utilities suppliers.

The role reports to the Property Finance Manager and has one direct report.  The friendly Property Finance team comprises 9 fully and part qualified accountants and is highly visible in the Property function.  The role presents a great opportunity to make an impact on key savings initiatives as well as providing scope for career progression within the team or wider Finance function.
