Finance Administrator (Temporary 6 Months Maternity Cover)

Irwin & Dow

Dubai, UAE

Ref: NP447-1107

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

A global trading company with over 45,000 employees across all continents and a SME sized representative office in Dubai, are seeking a Temporary Finance Administrator to cover maternity leave for 6 months. The Dubai office is a very friendly and open environment encompassing a diverse range of nationalities and skill sets. Therefore the role requires those with an excellent standard of English and a great team ethic.

The Finance Administrator will support the Marketing team with all purchase order requisitions, tracking of point of sale items and budget monitoring, analysis and workflow. The successful candidate will manage and liaise with all suppliers and vendors to ensure the goods arrive on time and handle any queries and issues with a professional and problem solving attitude. Additional tasks also include collection of vendor invoices and updating the same onto the ERP, alongside the purchase order request, budget and signatory approvals and completion. Advanced excel skills are also required for this temporary post as you will be responsible for the tracking, planning and analysis of the overall marketing budget on a quarterly basis to ensure any variants are raised with the Marketing Manager. Monthly reports, downloaded from the SAP ERP will also be sent to the relevant country’s local marketing and finance teams in order for them to have real time work and progress breakdowns and understand their budget allocations and spend. You will therefore have regular contact with other global offices to share and collate information.


This role is to cover maternity leave and we can only therefore guarantee a period of 6 months at this current time. However, for the most suitable candidate an employment visa will be provided. Additionally those already on their family or spouse visa are also encouraged to apply. It is expected that you are a strong finance administrator, able to analyse and monitor budgets and collate large excel reports. It is also essential that you have a minimum of 1 year of exposure to SAP in order to be successful in this role.
