    Finance Director | Rapid Growth Luxury b2b Retailer | Old Street

    The Company:

    Headquartered in central London, our client is highly regarded within the European luxury business-to-business retail sector. Their turnover has grown from £30-£40 million within the past two years, prompting significant investment in new leadership hires prior to launching their first USA office in Q3 2020. Harmonic Finance are acting as sole, retained agent.

    Company culture and workplace:

    Working from their beautiful architect-designed offices, the culture of the business is professional, but defiantly non-corporate. In spite of significant recent growth in headcount the co-founders retain supportive communication with employees at all levels and there is a conscious focus upon providing team members with excellent professional development and career progression opportunities.

    Unsurprisingly, staff retention is excellent (many employees have remained with the business for over ten years). While in an industry not renowned for its diversity, it's noteworthy that this organisation are market-leading in this regard.

    The Role:

    The successful candidate will be the first full time Finance Director and will balance an ability to manage a 'best in class' commercial finance and financial reporting function with the capacity to undertake a vocal leadership role within the broader business. Finance does not sit as 'back office' at this company, and as such the role requires a candidate who is a confident communicator and influencer, with a drive to provide support and leadership on broader operational initiatives where required.

    Revenue is typically invoiced in the form of projects, so candidates with an aptitude for managing teams with a commercial 'project accounting' outlook will be looked upon favourably. This will be particularly so in instances where their outlook is geared towards establishing close finance business partnering relationships between Sales and Operations. The first six months at least- the role is suitable for a 'player coach' rather than a more hands-off strategy-focussed Finance Director.

    Duties:

    * Manage, mentor and grow the finance team and ensure excellent teamwork across the function.

    * As a member of the Board, provide strategic financial input into the company strategy.

    * Take overall responsibility for the successful delivery of the annual audit.

    * Provide (supported where required by professional advisors) Board level guidance on best-in-class domestic and international tax policies and corporate structures.

    * Oversee the timely production of accurate Management Accounts which are ready for distribution at Board level.

    * Ensure the effective partnering of Finance with Sales and Manufacturing to provide ad-hoc FP&A analysis to the Board.

    * Oversee the production of a monthly cashflow forecast. To include variances from budget/forecast and highlight any areas of weakness in cost control.

    * Ensure successful delivery of payroll, pension administration and the production of quarterly commission statements to ensure accuracy and timeliness.

    * Overall control for the finance and ERP system (Netsuite) with responsibility for the maintenance and updating of the system.

    * Stock - oversee the monthly reconciliations for the product stock.

    * Ensure that the VAT and Intrastat returns are completed in a timely and accurate manner.

    * Ensure all financial policies are up to date and that there are appropriate internal controls in place over all accounting and financial transactions across the business.

    * Bank accounts/cashflow - oversee the company bank accounts and manage Treasury and FX policies as appropriate.

    * Refine and develop accounting processes and systems.

    What we need to see (Essential):

    * At least 2 years' experience at Finance Director or Head of Finance level within a business turning over in excess of £20 million.
    * Qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA
    * Strong aptitude for leading finance teams in businesses with a heavy project accounting focus.
    * Superb communication skills (including public presentations) and high level of emotional intelligence.
    * Evidence of strong leadership and management skills of teams of at least 4-5 people.
    * A high integrity, values-based outlook.

    What we'd like to see (Not Essential):

    * Recent experience of having worked in a product, retail (including ecommerce) or manufacturing business.
    * Functional experience of the optimization of ERP systems (especially Netsuite) post-implementation.
    * Previous experience of leading a finance function within an ecommerce business.
    * Experience of working within a fast-growth owner-managed business.

    Head of Commercial Finance | Fast Growth SaaS Start-Up | London



    I am working with a very fast growth SaaS start-up company based out of North America, who are looking for a high calibre Commercial Finance Analyst to join the UK office here in London.

    The company secured their Series A funding last year at the hands of renowned international VC companies who have a reputation for backing SaaS and Tech success stories. They are set to add to this funding with a Series B round expected later this year.



    After considerable growth over recent years, the start-up's headcount has risen to over 50 people across 3 offices in 3 different continents worldwide (Asia, North America and Europe). Their client base spans even further afield with customers in every continent.



    Currently residing in a modern office in central London, they are an outgoing and social group who know how to work hard and grind out results. As if that isn't enough, they have regular visitors to the office in the form of dogs (who doesn't like dogs?!).



    The Role



    Reporting to the North American based CFO and the UK based CEO, the successful candidate will have an incredible opportunity to have a genuine impact on the direction of this SaaS business as they continue to grow. You will be reporting around key SaaS KPI metrics to provide stakeholders with the analysis needed to make fundamental decisions. Your role will also be key to closing the imminent Series B round. Your duties will include (but not be limited to):



    * Produce and challenge existing financial models
    * Create, monitor and analyse key KPI's, specifically around enterprise SaaS metrics
    * Preparation and presentation of investor decks, board packs and management reports

    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
    * Incentives relating to music, health and fitness and food

    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

    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

    The company

    Making major headlines in the European press for some time now, our client - having recently delivered a major fund raise - are on the cusp of becoming a household name, having already delivered incredible growth and brand reputation within a very short time frame.

    In order to deliver their 3 year strategy, they have tasked Harmonic Finance with supporting their recruitment of the business's first Finance Direcot.

    The role

    Although you will be ably supported by a Financial Controller and another more junior finance colleague, this is a true 'hands-on' FD role, where you will be expected to deal with strategy leadership and investor relations. While also dealing with ensuring best of class FP&A analysis, process improvements and stat accounting from you and the team.

    The business will be unrecognizable within 12 months, so it is important that you thrive in an environment where growth plans are aggressive. An ability to be adaptable, operationally-minded and a passion for building, coaching and scaling finance teams.

    Although it is not a pre-requisite for consideration for the role, candidates who have previous experience of the beverages sector (particularly in relation to the in-sourcing of bottling or canning and packaging) would be of particular interest.

    What we need to see (essential):

    * Past experience of having worked in a fast-growth Private Equity or VC-backed business would be of real benefit.

    What we'd like to see (bonus)

    * ACA-qualified candidates will be looked upon most favourably
    * Food or Beverage industry experience
    * Previous experience of supporting an IPO process

    Salary: £100-110,000 + market leading equity

    Please forward an up-to-date CV to be considered for interview.
