AKD Softwoods is a successful and integrated forestry products company, growing and manufacturing quality timber products. AKD Softwoods is well recognised for being a progressive company, employing the latest technologies.

With a proud history, stable ownership and employing over 600 people, AKD Softwoods are focused on building a culture of continuous improvement and are looking for the ‘right’ person to join their team.

We are offering an exciting opportunity for an astute, self-motivated person to join our team in the newly created position of Site Accountant responsible for financial support for Yarram and Traralgon Businesses.

Reporting directly to the Chief Financial Officer, the role has been developed to provide financial support to both operations using the existing information systems. The role will work closely with site management at both sites and will have regular exposure to the group Executive Team.

In this full-time position there is an expectation that a minimum of three days per week will be worked out of our Yarram Operation. With the additional two flexible across either the Yarram or Traralgon business.
