Fjord Management are working in partnership with an Oil and Gas business with operations in Dubai to recruit an Senior Oil and Gas JV Accountant. You will ideally have line management experience.
Reporting to the JV Manager, the Senior JV Accountant will be responsible for supporting all operated and non-operated assets. On a daily basis, you would be interacting with various Business Partners, Budget Holders, Cost Engineers and Asset Managers in Aberdeen, therefore strong English communication skills are absolutely essential – written, spoken and listening – you will be tested on this as part of the interview process.
As a Senior JV Accountant, you will be responsible for maintaining the books of accounts for Joint Venture Assets in line with Joint Operated Agreements, as well as adhering to Standard Oil Accounting Procedures (SOAP). Oil and Gas experience is an absolute must have. Knowledge of SOAP and JOAs is essential and you will also be assessed on this at interview.
ESSENTIAL experience must include:
- Ability to independently raise a cash call. The JV Accountant must be able to come up with a realistic figure and be able to demonstrate a breakdown of how to amend this cash call
- Calculating and presenting joint interest billing statements
- Ability to deal with legacy issues – there are reconciliations going back to 2014 / 2015 which will require self-learning and digging to find suitable resolutions
- Strong Excel skills; v-lookups and pivots are essential
You will possess high-energy and drive, be incredibly timeline focused and will strive for excellence in all that you do.
The role is based in Dubai and we are looking for someone who enjoys working as part of a professional and multi-cultural team.
