    Finance Analyst / Commercial Finance Analyst : TV and Film Industry
    The Company:
    Harmonic are proud to be working on an exclusive basis with one of London's premier post-production and video editing companies. Well-known for working on Oscar-winning feature films they have won several national and international awards.
    The business is located in the heart of Soho in a beautiful architect-designed office which was recently refurbished, although there is a very enlightened management attitude towards flexible home working if required.
    Despite recent growth (50% since last year) and a strong net profitability, the company has retained a great tight-knit 'family' feel, with excellent diversity. They are also very values-led which no doubt contributes heavily to a staff turnover of near zero over recent years.
    The Role:
    The business currently outsources the production of the Management Accounts, Stat, VAT and P11ds etc to a bookkeeper and an accountancy practice. As the first internal Finance hire for the organisation, you will be tasked with initially focussing upon the commercial finance aspects/FP&A. Commercial financial analysis and project accounting experience is an absolute must. The client have recently gone live with an MI reporting dashboard and you will therefore need to display some background in FP&A or business partnering, ideally within a business whose revenue streams are linked to project-based billing structures.
    Candidates who have aspirations to become a Financial Controller will be given the opportunity as they progress to highlight which tasks can be 'in-sourced' and taken under their wing. This role is therefore ideal for a current Finance Analyst who has a passion for commerical finance, but wishes to develop their skills into broader duties.
    There is a marginal preference for candidates to work five days a week. However, the client will also welcome applications from candidates seeking to work a 4-day week for instance.
    Duties:

    * Project accounting - helping with invoicing, billing, profitability reporting.
    * Management information - owning the dashboard and producing agreed MI on
    * a monthly basis, with a pertinent commentary.
    * General book-keeping - accurately reconciling bank transactions, processing receipts and expenses, owning and maintaining our accounts in Xero.
    * Setting up and paying suppliers within agreed terms.
    * Debtor book - carefully managing clients to reduce average debtor days while maintaining great relationships.

    What we'd like to see (Essential):

    * ACA/ACCA/CIMA part or fully-qualified
    * Experience within an arts-based organisation (TV, Film, Music, Events, Theatre etc)
    * Solid FP&A experience alongside good all-round Management Accounting experience

    Chief of Staff

    The company

    Harmonic Group's exclusive client are a leading light within the UK services industry. Growing at over 35% pa, the business presently generates net revenues of over £35 million, with ambitious growth targets for the coming financial years.
    Providing services from a 22-strong global office network, they have engaged with Harmonic to expand (their already hugely talented) senior management team.

    The role

    A new role within the business, the Chief of Staff will act as right-hand person to the CEO. Based from the HQ in London (West End), your core purpose will be to ensure effective communication, delivery and implementation of the company strategy across the globe and across teams with different national and professional cultures. Some projects may involve leaders from around the world and from very different disciplines ranging from operational 'high touch' service delivery to software development or from marketing to compliance.
    Team objectives and deliverables are presently aligned to the company vision and mission via the use of an innovative critical thinking and strategic framework. This has produced a collaborative yet entrepreneurial culture which has been the bedrock of the company's success. As headcount continues to grow rapidly across multiple countries, time zones and departments, you will focus upon ensuring that this strategic and cultural alignment flourishes rather than dilutes with scale.

    As Chief of Staff you will be a superb cross-departmental problem solver and organiser. You will have a passion for accountability, process, and the ability to think laterally and to identify project and department inconsistencies that need solving to ensure great decision making. While creativity is welcomed within the business, your personal focus will be upon implementation rather than strategic analysis. The role would subsequently suit an individual who has experience of working with senior stakeholders to ensure the delivery of organisational change and/or communications in a fast-growth multi-national business. Applicants who have prior experience within Management Consultancy, Business Change, Operations or Communications will therefore be particularly welcome.

    While remuneration is generous at all levels, this is linked to colleagues demonstrating long-term delivery and impact. They are rightly proud of having market-leading staff retention at all levels in the business, which has been established via a recruitment policy that targets individuals motivated chiefly by personal and professional development, a positive values-driven working culture and by having tangible impact upon the business's exceptional ongoing expansion. As Chief of Staff you will be a vocal ambassador and role model for this approach.
    Due to the nature of the duties and the level of interaction with senior colleagues, you must be highly-motivated and detail-oriented. Decision-making processes are collaborative, with open and honest communication sitting alongside the ability to self-evaluate being the most valued professional behaviours. As Chief of Staff you must therefore be able to deliver within a working environment that requires independence, maturity and confidence.

    What you need (Essential)

    * Successful track record of supporting the communication, delivery and execution of a business strategy within a successful, high-growth, complex organisation.
    * Ability to organise and to motivate diverse international and cross-departmental teams.
    * Proven experience of co-ordinating and delivering communications across multiple international locations.
    * Passion for efficient processes and the delivery of consistent 'best practice'.
    * Highly-motivated with strong academic background.
    * Ability to articulate complex concepts in simple, concise language. And to summarise these in flawless prose.
    * First-rate emotional intelligence and the ability to adapt your communication style to a diverse audience where required.

    What we'd like to see (Non-essential)

    * Fluency in any major world languages would be welcome but not necessary.
    * Willingness to travel globally several times a year.

    80-150k (depending upon experience. Note the client are open to backing potential over experience, but wish to consider a range of experience) + Shares + Bens

    Business Development - Community Analyst

    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper start to 2017, we're looking for three talented people to help us expand our reach into exciting new markets.

    As one of our first intake of Community Analysts for September '17, the position offers you the opportunity to shape the future direction of one of London's most exciting start-ups. And to do this while working in one of the coolest, most creative workplaces in Camden Town, London.

    Combining business development, networking, research, marketing and commercial negotiations, Harmonic Community Analysts will be taken through a broad education in recruitment business development which offers unrivalled career progression.

    About Harmonic

    Harmonic supply accounting and finance professionals who enable our clients to be brilliant. Focussing 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.

    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. Their intention is for the senior management team of 2021 to be 90% comprised of former Community Analysts.

    The Role

    Community Analyst is the first rung on the Harmonic career development programme. The position is a broad introduction to recruitment and staffing, which focusses upon the development of business development skills (80% phone, 10% meetings, 10% marketing and events) and the building of a trusted community of candidates within a niche marketplace. 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. We expect successful candidates to make promotion to Senior Community Analyst between their fifth and eight months in the job.

    Duties

    * Build a niche candidate community via phone and face-to-face business development
    * Source information or 'leads' on urgent hiring opportunities for Harmonic to fill
    * Source candidates for live Harmonic vacancies
    * Take responsibility for the quality of the Harmonic CRM data
    * Manage and monitor social media channels
    * Write and co-ordinate the design of bespoke marketing materials for your marketplace
    * Create original content specific to your market for the Harmonic website

    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 Interchange, Camden- voted London's most vibrant workspace no less- where we work alongside some of Europe's most exciting creative and technology businesses. As an Interchange 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!

    Business Development - Community Analyst

    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper start to 2017, we're looking for three talented people to help us expand our reach into exciting new markets.

    As one of our first intake of Community Analysts for September '17, the position offers you the opportunity to shape the future direction of one of London's most exciting start-ups. And to do this while working in one of the coolest, most creative workplaces in Camden Town, London.

    Combining business development, networking, research, marketing and commercial negotiations, Harmonic Community Analysts will be taken through a broad education in recruitment business development which offers unrivalled career progression.

    About Harmonic

    Harmonic supply accounting and finance professionals who enable our clients to be brilliant. Focussing 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.

    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. Their intention is for the senior management team of 2021 to be 90% comprised of former Community Analysts.

    The Role

    Community Analyst is the first rung on the Harmonic career development programme. The position is a broad introduction to recruitment and staffing, which focusses upon the development of business development skills (80% phone, 10% meetings, 10% marketing and events) and the building of a trusted community of candidates within a niche marketplace. 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. We expect successful candidates to make promotion to Senior Community Analyst between their fifth and eight months in the job.

    Duties

    * Build a niche candidate community via phone and face-to-face business development
    * Source information or 'leads' on urgent hiring opportunities for Harmonic to fill
    * Source candidates for live Harmonic vacancies
    * Take responsibility for the quality of the Harmonic CRM data
    * Manage and monitor social media channels
    * Write and co-ordinate the design of bespoke marketing materials for your marketplace
    * Create original content specific to your market for the Harmonic website

    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 Interchange, Camden- voted London's most vibrant workspace no less- where we work alongside some of Europe's most exciting creative and technology businesses. As an Interchange 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!

    * Fantastic verbal and written communication skills
    * Good educational background
    * A competitive spirit
    * An appreciation and sharing of our values
