    The Client

    We are pleased to be working with an innovative start-up building an Online Marketplace to 'disrupt' their industry. With an experienced Founder & CEO who has successfully exited a previous Online Marketplace they are very well funded (backed by two major UK Venture Capital funds) and ready for a rapid phase of expansion.

    They have just moved into their own office space and encourage a culture of transparency and impact. They have a young and sociable team who like to have a good time, but this is most definitely a fast- paced environment and not a 9-5 to role given the growth the company is experiencing.

    The Finance Assistant works closely with the Finance Director and is responsible for driving the set-up of processes in Finance while gaining excellent commercial exposure. In the short term the business will be bringing the Management Accounting function in-house, so this is a chance to support the CFO and then ultimately own Management Accounting with a clear route of progression to Finance Manager.

    The role:

    * Invoicing and purchase ledger
    * Payroll and staff expenses
    * Assisting the Finance Director with ad-hoc duties such as tax and month-end processes
    * Liaising with clients and sales team to onboard new clients
    * Providing ad-hoc support with the bookkeeping
    * Involvement with the implementation of new processes
    * Ad-hoc duties

    Required Experience:

    * Minimum 1-year experience as a Finance Assistant or Accounts Payable
    * Keen to work in a fast-paced, changing environment
    * Well organised and excellent communicator
    * Willingness to learn

    Additional Experience (not required):

    * Worked in a start-up

    Offered Package:

    * Up to ££27,000 + Study Support
    * Start Date ASAP
