    Finance Manager | Digital Agency (Luxury Brands) | Old Street/Shoreditch

    Harmonic Finance are proud to be working on a retained basis for one of the UK's most respected niche digital agencies. To support the co-founders following recent M&A activity, the business requires a Finance Manager.

    Small, but highly-profitable, the agency presently has a full-time headcount of 16, plus freelance ad-hoc support. They are located in fantastic converted mid-century building furnished with beautiful Scandinavian-style furniture a short walk from Old Street station which they share with a film production business.

    Their unique selling points are twofold: they 'get' the luxury space like few other agencies, and have an enviable client list. Secondly- and unusually for a company of their size- they also provide marketing insight analysis and visualization solutions to their clients. Often on a recurring monthly retainer basis.

    The role

    Although you will have access to ad-hoc support from a very experienced CFO/FD (est. 1-3 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
    * Assist with the production of the board pack
    * 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)
    * Liase with Accountancy practice to ensure accurate VAT and stat returns
    * Management of payroll
    * Accounts Payable & Accounts Receivable

    Please note that the exec team view the role as an evolving one: if there is a business case for outsourcing some of these duties mid-term, or for hiring more colleagues, then they are open to discussing this. You will need to be prepared to cover all bases at the outset however.

    Career prospects

    The company have a culture of 'promoting from within'. The exec team subsequently view this role as an audition to become the future Finance Director of the business given strong professional performance.

    Group Financial Controller | Private Equity-backed wholesale retail business | East Sussex

    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting exclusively on behalf of a rapidly-expanding wholesale retailer based in East Sussex- a rare opportunity in this location. Following significant Private Equity investment, the business has experienced rapid organic growth. And is now focusing upon a programme of acquisitions of smaller competitors.
    The role is a newly-created position and the successful candidate will be mentored by a hugely experienced CFO and Non-Exec Directors with phenomenal track records. In short, this is a perfect position for a candidate looking to make the step up to Finance Director within an 18-month window.

    Company culture is entrepreneurial and fast-moving, but also hugely supportive with a great social scene. Staff retention is subsequently excellent.

    The role:

    Reporting into the CFO, you will manage both the commercial finance function, transactional finance sub-team and also own the production of the P&L and Management Accounts (supported by the team). You will also take responsibility for the annual audit, and have a solid understanding of VAT and Corp Tax within a mid-large sized business setting.

    The focus of the role will be 65% commercial. Candidates should therefore have a genuine passion for FP&A and Commercial Analysis.

    What we need to see (essential):

    · ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified
    · Recent experience of leading finance teams (min 3 people +)
    · Good balance of stat and commercial accounting knowledge (and practical hands-on experience)

    What we'd like to see (non-essential):

    · Experience of working in a private equity-backed business would be helpful. But is non-essential.

    Salary: £75-82,000 + bonus

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