    Graduate Business Development / Assistant Community Analyst | Recruitment | London

    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper first 18 months, we're looking for one talented person to help us continue to grow and support Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director.

    Combining business development, networking, research, marketing and commercial negotiations, Harmonic Finance's Assistant Community Analysts are taken through a broad education in recruitment business development which offers unrivaled career progression.

    About Harmonic

    Harmonic supply accounting and finance professionals who enable our clients to be brilliant. Focusing on filling roles ranging from Chief Financial Officers through to Royalties Accountants, we work with some of the most exciting organisations in Europe, ranging from ground-breaking technology start-ups, through to major fashion labels. The common thread however is: 'non-corporate' clients.


    Led by Charlie Walker, the youngest-ever recipient of the prestigious Recruitment International' Entrepreneur of the Year Award', Harmonic is our founder's second business (having built his first to a £30 million turnover operation aged just 24 back in 2008). He and his co-founder Fin Glanvill are passionate about operating working cultures where values underpin everything. And where colleagues are rewarded for what they have contributed to the growth of the business.


    The Role

    Assistant Community Analyst is a broad introduction to recruitment and staffing, the position will be focused upon supporting Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director building trusted candidate communities for recruitment campaigns he is undertaking for senior leadership roles for our clients. No experience is necessary- you will be taught everything from the ground up.

    A large part of your role will be supporting your colleagues in the Harmonic Team by maintaining highly-accurate data concerning which candidates are available (think data champion!), what their needs are, and recommending candidates to colleagues for roles they may be suitable for. The good news for you? You will receive generous commission and targeted bonuses in relation to the quality of this data and any introductions you make.

    This role is a great introduction to a fast-moving, hyper-growth environment (our turnover is on course to grow 400% this year) you will receive mentoring from an award-winning leadership team and will be steadily coached toward becoming a community analyst where you will be responsible for winning and developing your own clients within 12-18 months.

    Daily and weekly targets will be used during your training so if you don't thrive in a competitive environment (albeit a super-friendly one!), then this probably isn't the role for you.

    Duties

    * Build a niche candidate community for Harmonic's Founder and MD's vacancies
    * Source information or 'leads' on urgent hiring opportunities for Harmonic to fill
    * Take responsibility for the quality of the Harmonic CRM data

    Work Environment and our Values

    Let's make no bones about it: we expect high standards. Harmonic Group is going places. And quickly. You should therefore expect to work long hours when needed, and not be too phased by the prospect of competition. However, while we expect our colleagues to apply themselves, we also pride ourselves on being model employers. Our working environment is supportive and empathetic, with advice and coaching on hand when needed outside of our regular review process. Above all, our three core values: Knowledge, Respect and Community aren't just there for PR purposes, they underpin everything we do internally as a business, as well as externally.

    And although we're fans of great British tailoring, we only pull out the suits and formal dress for client meetings and parties. It's important to us that you're able to work comfortably and express your own personality. In keeping with this, our offices are based out of co-working spaces where we work alongside some of Europe's most exciting creative and technology businesses. As a Labs.com member, you will gain regular access to talks by entrepreneurs ranging from the founder of Boiler Room through to the CEO of Barclays. We even have our own magazine. And dogs!

    Training

    We're usually a modest bunch (or at least by industry standards!). But Harmonic offer the best training and coaching. Bar none. As you'll be joining us nice and early, you'll reap the full benefits of reporting directly into an individual who has 10 proven years of developing Trainees into elite consultants and Board Directors. Check our site and Linkedin profiles to see what people have to say.

    What we'll need to see throughout the recruitment process (essential)

    * Fantastic verbal and written communication skills
    * Good educational background

    * A competitive spirit
    * An appreciation and sharing of our values

    Package & Benefits

    * Basic salary of £18,000-20,000 plus commission bonus' (estimated a further£4-6k within the first 12 months)
    * Annual Bonus (linked to individual display of our values)
    * 1 x company weekend away (paid for by Harmonic!)
    * 1 x individually-targeted weekend away (New York or similar)
    * Weekly SPIN, Yoga, Pilates, HIIT Circuit Training

    Graduate Business Development / Assistant Community Analyst | Recruitment | London

    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper first 18 months, we're looking for one talented person to help us continue to grow and support Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director.

    Combining business development, networking, research, marketing and commercial negotiations, Harmonic Finance's Assistant Community Analysts are taken through a broad education in recruitment business development which offers unrivaled career progression.

    About Harmonic

    Harmonic supply accounting and finance professionals who enable our clients to be brilliant. Focusing on filling roles ranging from Chief Financial Officers through to Royalties Accountants, we work with some of the most exciting organisations in Europe, ranging from ground-breaking technology start-ups, through to major fashion labels. The common thread however is: 'non-corporate' clients.


    Led by Charlie Walker, the youngest-ever recipient of the prestigious Recruitment International' Entrepreneur of the Year Award', Harmonic is our founder's second business (having built his first to a £30 million turnover operation aged just 24 back in 2008). He and his co-founder Fin Glanvill are passionate about operating working cultures where values underpin everything. And where colleagues are rewarded for what they have contributed to the growth of the business.


    The Role

    Assistant Community Analyst is a broad introduction to recruitment and staffing, the position will be focused upon supporting Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director building trusted candidate communities for recruitment campaigns he is undertaking for senior leadership roles for our clients. No experience is necessary- you will be taught everything from the ground up.

    A large part of your role will be supporting your colleagues in the Harmonic Team by maintaining highly-accurate data concerning which candidates are available (think data champion!), what their needs are, and recommending candidates to colleagues for roles they may be suitable for. The good news for you? You will receive generous commission and targeted bonuses in relation to the quality of this data and any introductions you make.

    This role is a great introduction to a fast-moving, hyper-growth environment (our turnover is on course to grow 400% this year) you will receive mentoring from an award-winning leadership team and will be steadily coached toward becoming a community analyst where you will be responsible for winning and developing your own clients within 12-18 months.

    Daily and weekly targets will be used during your training so if you don't thrive in a competitive environment (albeit a super-friendly one!), then this probably isn't the role for you.

    Duties

    * Build a niche candidate community for Harmonic's Founder and MD's vacancies
    * Source information or 'leads' on urgent hiring opportunities for Harmonic to fill
    * Take responsibility for the quality of the Harmonic CRM data

    Work Environment and our Values

    Let's make no bones about it: we expect high standards. Harmonic Group is going places. And quickly. You should therefore expect to work long hours when needed, and not be too phased by the prospect of competition. However, while we expect our colleagues to apply themselves, we also pride ourselves on being model employers. Our working environment is supportive and empathetic, with advice and coaching on hand when needed outside of our regular review process. Above all, our three core values: Knowledge, Respect and Community aren't just there for PR purposes, they underpin everything we do internally as a business, as well as externally.

    And although we're fans of great British tailoring, we only pull out the suits and formal dress for client meetings and parties. It's important to us that you're able to work comfortably and express your own personality. In keeping with this, our offices are based out of co-working spaces where we work alongside some of Europe's most exciting creative and technology businesses. As a Labs.com member, you will gain regular access to talks by entrepreneurs ranging from the founder of Boiler Room through to the CEO of Barclays. We even have our own magazine. And dogs!

    Training

    We're usually a modest bunch (or at least by industry standards!). But Harmonic offer the best training and coaching. Bar none. As you'll be joining us nice and early, you'll reap the full benefits of reporting directly into an individual who has 10 proven years of developing Trainees into elite consultants and Board Directors. Check our site and Linkedin profiles to see what people have to say.

    What we'll need to see throughout the recruitment process (essential)

    * Fantastic verbal and written communication skills
    * Good educational background

    * A competitive spirit
    * An appreciation and sharing of our values

    Package & Benefits

    * Basic salary of £18,000-20,000 plus commission bonus' (estimated a further£4-6k within the first 12 months)

    Finance Director (Operational) | Market-leading SAAS organisation | Full-time or 4 day week



    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting on an exclusive basis for one of the United Kingdom's leading Series A SAAS companies. The business are 'first to market' in their field and are now- following a recent multi-million pound VC raise- seeking to invest heavily in headcount across tech, finance and business development.

    In spite of being founded only a few years ago, they have scaled rapidly- in the process acquiring a number of exclusive international clients on long-term contracts. The co-founders have previously successfully exited a business for a sizeable revenue multiple and are well-respected by experienced peers within the European tech community.



    The role:

    A newly-created position (supported by a capable colleague who covered Management Accounts and Transactional Finance), you will be the #1 team member for Finance and Operations.

    While the business is relatively simple from a transactional perspective, there is currently a lack of nous around the commercial financial analysis and KPI metrics and the financial input into the board pack for investors requires improvement during 2020. There is also a requirement to provide strategic leadership and support the CEO as the business make the step-change from circa 20 to 50 headcount.

    While the emphasis of the role is heavily weighted towards Finance (c 85%), you will also oversee colleagues who will manage the HR and Legal side (i.e. contractual agreements with new clients and compliance etc). The role would therefore suit someone who is either happy to learn and develop a broader 'Operational FD skillset', or someone who has experience to cover a broad remit from a previous start-up.

    Subject to strong performance, the successful candidate will be offered a clear career trajectory to become the company's first CFO.



    Company culture:

    Professional but non-corporate with a good degree of diversity in respect of age and background. There's an emphasis on the social side and a healthy openness to flexible working.



    Workplace:

    The business have a fantastic, spacious private office which links with a co-working suite where there are several shared events.



    What we need to see (Essential):

    * Qualified ACA, ACCA, CIMA
    * Experience of working within at least one Seed or Series A-C scale-up (current or previous role)
    * A real enthusiasm for commercial financial analysis and an ability to develop KPI dashboards.
    * Strong communication skills, including the ability and confidence to present to prospective investors.
    * Solid technical accounting background



    What we'd like to see (Non-Essential):

    * Experience as an FC, Head of Finance or Finance Director within a SAAS or Enterprise Software business.



    Location: Old Street



    Salary: £90-110k + bonus + options (experience dependent). Client will consider a pro-rata 4 day per week arrangement
