Financial Controller

  • Full-time

Company Description

Liberty Oil Australia, which is a part of the Viva Energy group of companies, has a proud history of fuel wholesale and distribution activities in Australia. We operate a regional network of fuel depots and distribute billions of litres of fuel a year with turnover of circa $2.3bn. This makes us one of the largest wholesale operations in the country.

The company strives to give the best service, the most reliable supply, and the best deal for their customers. Given our history, we know the Australian fuel industry well. Our long-term players are proud of their flexibility, their agility and their ability to do whatever it takes to provide the most competitive and most reliable fuel supply to their customers across the country.

Whilst Liberty Oil is owned by Viva Energy Australia, one of Australia’s leading energy companies, it remains at its core an independent wholesale subsidiary with the advantage of being able to obtain support from the broader Viva Energy network.

Job Description
