    I am recruiting an Assistant Financial Controller to join an international Biotech start-up with offices in Cambridge and the US. This is a great opportunity to join a growing Biotech with significant funding and some exciting growth plans in the next 12-18 months. You will be one of the first "in-house" Finance hires and there will be the opportunity to develop your skillset and grow professionally with the business. Like ourselves at Harmonic, this company offer a "more-cool-than-corporate" working environment and pride themselves on their collaborative and friendly company culture.

    * The management of the Accounts Payable Ledger
    * Oversee the month end process, journal posting, accruals and prepayments
    * Budgeting monitoring and business partnering with the R&D team
    * Cost Accounting and cost-centre allocation for R&D activities
    * Group reporting and Year-End activities

    What we'd like to see from you:


    * At least Part Qualified Accountant of ACCA, CIMA or ACA
    * A confident communicator who can liaise with budget holders and academic professionals
    * Experience working in the Biotech industry (ESSENTIAL), ideally for a pre-revenue start up (DESIREABLE)
    * Strong excel and cloud-accounting software experience


    * The ability to "roll up your sleeves" and focus on ledger work when required
    * Available to join ASAP
