Accouting & Finance
Accounting & Finance
Our Accounting, Finance and Tax departments manage all aspects of our financial operations from cash management to financial reporting. As part of our team, you will play a key role in how our business operates taking responsibility for essential functions such as cash control, third-party payments, preparing financial statements and tax returns.
We’re always looking for people who can work with speed and accuracy. We process a high volume of work every day and it’s essential that you’re able to manage your workload, effectively delivering projects on time to a high standard. With our digital approach to work, it’s an advantage if you’re already computer-literate, familiar with industry software and adaptable enough to adopt our specialist programmes with a little training.
The role of the Management Accounting department is to be responsible for supporting key stakeholders in all areas of the business, overseeing the month-end accounting process and being a driving force behind the business with key initiatives, projects and the financial planning cycle.
A position in the Management Accounting department will offer you the opportunity to play a pivotal role within the business and to be seen as an expert in respect of accounting treatments and/or analysis. You will be working closely with other members of the team developing medium and long-term strategic plans to ensure forward-looking business plans are delivered with minimal variances encountered.
At Lidl we are committed to looking after you not only at work, but also in your personal life. This means that when it comes to your benefits package, we mean more than just the competitive salaries we offer.

We're fully dedicated to your personal and professional development to help you reach your potential.
Having time off to spend however you wish is essential for your physical and mental wellbeing. At Lidl, we provide up to 25 days paid annual leave each year plus 10 public holidays.
All employees are entitled to join the Lidl Pension Scheme after a qualifying period. This benefit is provided by the company allowing you to save for your retirement.
From time to time we all unfortunately fall ill. In order to reduce the burden when this occurs, Lidl generously provides 20 days paid sick leave (after 6 months of service). The necessary medical certificates may be required depending on the length of leave taken.
Throughout the year, we promote wellness initiatives to support your safety and wellbeing at Lidl. Initiatives range from supporting your physical and mental health to ensuring your safety in the workplace.
We provide a generous remuneration top up for maternity and adoption leave to encourage new mothers to take that time out to bond with their new arrival. Statutory leave allows fathers to take 2 weeks leave to enjoy the arrival of their newborn or newly adopted child. At Lidl, we offer employees a generous remuneration top up to supplement this leave.
Using the Bike to Work scheme, Lidl can help you attain a brand-new bike and safety equipment worth up to €1,000 of tax relief after a qualifying period of service. You can also utilise a salary sacrifice arrangement to pay for the bike over a 6-month period so that you can save up to 51% of the retail price.
