    The role will initially be weighted 70 / 30 in favour of technical financial accounting vs commercial while you establish best practice processes for you and your team. However, the client are at pains to stress that there will be opportunities to be involved actively in more commercial FP&A activities.

    * Manage and oversee the month end financial accounts process.

    * Production of Financial Statements (balance sheet, P&L, cashflows).
    * Help lead the year end Audit process.
    * Manage tax projects (Corp Tax, Quarterly VAT).
    * Manage (and consistently improve) Financial Controls.
    * Management and coaching of the Assistant Accountant to deliver accurate payroll (supported by external partner company) and high quality AR and AP.



    Desired industry experience:

    Our client is flexible- competencies and behaviours are most important. However, candidates with some ecommerce or high-volume retail experience will have a slight advantage. As will those who have some exposure to a rapid-growth start-up or scale-up business.



    Work location:

    London Zone 1 (brand new excellent office). Expectation for 2 days minimum from office.



    Culture:

    Fun, and very caring of team members with a really supportive and engaged culture. There are regular funded socials and active groups for those with children, colleagues with dogs (!), musical interests etc.



    Salary:

    £55-65,000 + market-beating share options package



    Start date:

    Client will wait for up to 3 month notice periods, but have a preference for a candidate who can start in 4-8 weeks.
