Job Description

Crossland wishes to recruit an ambitious Company Accountant who will have responsibility for the Management and Financial Accounting of our two production sites located in Swatragh, Northern Ireland and Burnley, England. This is a newly created role which will see the successful candidate join a strong, established Finance department.

This role requires an analytical, detail orientated, commercial and profit focused individual who can utilise the information they produce to present recommendations on business operations, and where necessary, have the confidence to challenge the status quo to deliver profit upside for the group.

Whilst production of insightful monthly Management Accounts will be the primary requirement of this role; the company want to recruit a self-starter who can then use this information to work directly and in collaboration with other key stakeholders on wider value add projects including production costings, capital spend programs and tenders.

This broad ranging role will be based at our Head Office in Swatragh where the successful candidate will work directly with the Financial Controller and four other department colleagues. Flexible at home working arrangements will be considered, subject to business need, after a satisfactory induction, training and company familiarisation period.

About The Company

When we first started out in business back in 1988, we were originally a tanker repair and servicing company, providing maintenance services to local bulk liquid haulage companies.

However, although our resources were modest when we started out, our passion, determination, and ambition to succeed were always there in abundance.

As a result, by the mid-1990s – building on our extensive repairs experience – we began to manufacture our very own tankers for the UK road industry at our factory in Swatragh, trading under the name Crossland Tankers Ltd.

Company Culture

From here, our business grew year-on-year, culminating in the purchase of Massey tankers, in 2003. This not only gave us access to a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, it also gave us a base within the UK mainland.

Today, we employ over 130 people across our two manufacturing sites at Swatragh (Northern Ireland) and Burnley (Lancashire) and are one of the leading tanker manufacturers in the UK and Ireland.

We are proud to have a wide range of customers in Ireland, the UK, the EU, and the Middle East.
