The world's leading internet media company, Yahoo!, which boasts one of the most intuitive, up-to-date and efficient guides to the internet on the market, is seeking to add a finance manager to its rapidly expanding Hong Kong team. The successful candidate must have experience in financial reporting, a hands-on approach to business and a passion for the World Wide Web. One of the most visible and recognisable names associated with the internet, Yahoo! has achieved a strong, global brand presence among Web users. 'Yahoo! has become the world's preferred passport to the internet,' Yahoo! Hong Kong human resources manager Catherine Fong said. This new position has emerged because of Yahoo!'s ongoing expansion in Hong Kong, Ms Fong explained. The new recruit would be responsible for management reporting, the preparation of budgets, forecasts and financial analysis, she said. Supervising the finance team will also fall on the successful candidate's shoulders. What are the attractions of the job? 'This position offers broad exposure to every aspect of the finance function, including financial reporting and management reporting, financial planning and analysis, internal control, treasury and enterprise resource planning system implementation,' Ms Fong said. The successful candidate would be actively involved in the business operations of Yahoo! Hong Kong, which 'will be a valuable experience', Ms Fong said. 'For those who are looking for challenging tasks in a fun and open environment, this is the right job,' she said. The ideal candidate must be a qualified certified accountant with a minimum of four years' financial reporting or financial planning and analysis experience, preferably gained in a multinational corporation. 'Three to four years of Big Four training and a knowledge of United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is a plus,' Ms Fong said. Experience of Oracle G/Lcat, Essbase or, most importantly, Excel, will boost the applicant's chances. 'You must also be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, be a highly independent self-starter and be able to handle multiple and competing priorities,' Ms Fong said. By way of reward, horizontal and vertical career advancement is on offer to high performers, in alignment with Yahoo! Hong Kong's fast and dynamic business growth. 'We value talent,' Ms Fong said. 'If you love the internet, become a professional [at] Yahoo! Hong Kong and get paid for your passion.'
