    Finance Manager | Services Business | £47-55k | Clapham

    Located a short walk from Clapham High Street, Harmonic Finance are proud to be working as sole retained agent to recruit the first Finance Manager for a national award-winning services business.

    With a turnover of circa £8 million, the company has a healthy balance sheet and retains big ambitions for 2020 as Covid-19 has presented new opportunities for the organisation to take market share.

    The role:

    Working as #1 in Finance you will have a passion for the day-to-day running of operational finance (Management Accounts, P&L, budgeting, forecasting), while also having big ambitions for the future and an eye for process improvement.

    The role will provide you with regular contact with the executive team (including the CEO), and so an ability to finance business partner and a passion for all things commercial finance is a real 'must'.

    You will be supported by a junior colleague with the AR/AP elements, but must retain an appetite to be 'hands-on' with the transactional side of things as our client have a ledger which changes regularly. An eye for detail is therefore key.

    Work location:

Although some work from home element will therefore be accommodated (1-2 days per week), there is a preference for a candidate who is happy to return to an office environment for at least part of the week. This is obviously subject to government guidelines.

    * Part or fully-qualified (preferred) ACA/ACCA/CIMA
    * Previous experience of working for a services or manufacturing business where there has been a significant 'project accounting' element (i.e. billable hours/day/deliverables)
    * Experience of working in an entrepreneurial, owner-managed business environment.
    * Experience of submitting VAT returns and working with external audit partners.
    * Experience of running month end close
