    Finance Manager | Marketing & Branding Agency | London

    Harmonic are excited to be recruiting for a leading niche Media Agency, that specialise within the 'luxury' space. The company directors are looking for a confident and sociable accountant to support the business as it continues to scale.

    Particularly notable, is that they are located in a amazing converted mid-century building furnished with beautiful Scandinavian-style furniture in the heart of Shoreditch. Moreover, the work-environment has a true family-feel to it, with colleagues socialising with each other frequently.

    There are around 20 employees and the business has a turnover of around £5 million and are very profitable. As the company expands, there is scope for this position to eventually become the Finance Director.

    The Role

    Although you will have access to ad-hoc support from a very experienced CFO/FD (4 days per month if you feel this is helpful) and an accountancy practice, this role requires a real 'all-rounder' who isn't afraid to balance some more complex duties with (low-volume) transactional duties.

    Your role will cover:

    * Production of the P&L and Management Accounts
    * Working on controlling costs and maintaining profitability
    * Responsible for liaising with Senior management on budgeting and forecasting
    * Working with the Creative team and Account Directors to run Commercial Finance activities (including creating pricing strategies for project bids, studio bulling time and finance business partnering with the MD)
    * Weekly cashflow forecasting
    * Liaise with Accountancy practice to ensure accurate VAT and stat returns
    * Accounts Payable & Accounts Receivable

    What we need to see (essential):

    * At least Part-Qualified (ACCA/CIMA)
    * Experience working at Management Accountant or Finance Manager level
    * Past industry experience in the creative industries (TV, Film, Music, Media, Entertainment)

    What we'd like to see (bonus):

    * Prior work at a creative Agency (media, marketing, TV & Film, Design)

    Salary: £45,000 - £55,000
