Vacancy - CFO


The Vinimark Group is looking for a CFO to take ultimate responsibility for the accounting, finance and business risk management functions of all entities in the group. These entities are engaged primarily in the wine industry, from primary production right through to marketing and sales of packaged wine to licensed retailers in SA, as well as exports to +/-60 markets across the world.

  • An experienced CA(SA) with strong finance skills (including good working knowledge of IFRS, tax and statutory) and commercial experience (strong but equitable negotiation skills, ability to review legal agreements and draw up addenda).
  • An individual that understands the key importance of technology in successful businesses and in particular how technology is to be applied in the finance and accounting functions, i.e. 4IR principles, process automation, machine learning, AI etc. all of which need to be optimised for IFRS and XBRL reporting, and must integrate seamlessly with ERP and external audit software.

This is a career opportunity in a successful, dynamic, privately-owned but professionally managed group of companies, and not a ‘corporate’ position. The individual will primarily ensure that controls and functions are in line with best business practices, and will have an exceptional opportunity to actively participate in strengthening existing businesses and building new, sustainable businesses. As such, remuneration will be linked to group performance to encourage ‘ownership’, accountability, and a culture of collaboration to ensure long term success and strong growth rather than short-term profit.

Most importantly, we’re looking for an individual with resolve, confidence and absolute humility. Someone able to inspire, engage and empower people to be innovative in seeking solutions and resolving problems. Someone with a strong work ethic, integrity and ethics beyond reproach, self-motivated with an ability to work both independently and collaboratively.

Vinimark is an equal opportunity employer and appointments are made in terms of the Employment Equity Act.

Closing date is 16 October 2020
