    Management Accountant | Fast Growth E-Commerce Start-Up | London



    The Client

    Harmonic are working on a retained basis with one of the UK's fastest growth e-commerce start-ups. They have both a B2C and B2B element and are financed by a host of well-known Angel Investors with a Turnover of circa £6m. Following a recent £7m Series A raise and exceedingly strong sales during Covid (B2C grew by 300%) they have invested in three state of the art warehouse facilities to drive rapid expansion in both the UK and US. Turnover is currently growing at 100% per annum with plans to more than double in 2021 and 2022.

    This is an incredibly exciting time to join the business as they have started trading in a number of US states with sites opening on both the East and West Coasts. Their high-end service is endorsed by a who's-who of A-List celebrities that have also invested in the business.

    The position will own month-end, management accounts and day-to-day Finance with a route to step up to Finance Manager in 6-12 months.

    At present the team is working from home and there will be continued flexibility, but this person will be required to attend the warehouse facility in West London from time to time.

    Culturally they have an incredibly ambitious and proactive team with a genuine passion for what they are building. The business has a typical 'start-up' feel - fast paced but lot's of fun! While the brand is certainly high-end, luxury the vibe is certainly one of rolling your sleeves up and getting stuck in.

    Logistics Distribution and Supply Chain
  • Doing what:

    Commercial Operations Director | Luxury Furniture | Milton Keynes

    Harmonic Operations are proud to be recruiting the next Commercial Operations Director on an exclusive basis for one of the United Kingdom's fastest-growing privately owned companies.

    Headquartered in London with regional offices and a state-of-the-art modern warehouse and distribution centre, this company are going places and are on track to hit £20 million t/o in their first 5 years of trading. The business has weathered the impact of Covid better than 90% of their competitors due a highly diverse international client base and have won several national and international awards.

    Company culture is highly professional and values-driven with a real focus on customer service and product quality. While the continued growth levels lend the business a real 'start-up' feel (albeit with an experienced management team)- this isn't the correct role for somebody who enjoys sleepy showrooms and quiet warehouses.

    Role & responsibilities:
    Reporting into the Founder, you act as the 'connector' between Sales and Marketing and the Finance and Operations, Manufacturing and Distribution function.

    You will be ultimately responsible for ensuring that products are manufactured to the highest standard, procured in the best prices and in the right amounts and then distributed and installed to the highest standards. While also ensuring that communication with other departments is effective and free-flowing.

    The role suits an individual who is highly commercial, but who is also a bit of a polymath and problem solver. The current state of play in the business is very positive (you aren't inheriting any fires to put out!), but the Founder also understands that there remains room for improvement, particularly in anticipation of the push towards £25-30 million t/o.

    What we need to see (Essential):

    * Recent experience as either; Commercial Director, COO or Managing Director within a business-to-business wholesale retailer.
    * Demonstrable experience of overseeing 'best in class' supply chain and distribution teams.
    * Experience of managing effective and efficient stock management and inventory processes involving inventories of £1 million+.
    * Experience of being the 'bridge' between Sales and Marketing, Finance and the more functional warehousing, manufacturing and distribution.
    * A functional (i.e. non-technical) understanding of what good looks like in relation to ERP systems.
    * Solid understanding of the P&L and sales forecasts etc.
    * Experience of overseeing high quality sales support, project management and customer services
    * Great influencing skills and a high level of emotional intelligence

    What we'd like to see (Bonus):

    * Current experience in a commercial furniture company
    * Experience of overseeing at least part of a manufacturing and assembly supply chain, including supporting commercial procurement decisions.
    * Some E-commerce / b2c exposure would be of real benefit.

    Location: Milton Keynes (min 3 days per week), with other days at London or Manchester offices.

    Salary: £85-100,000 + performance related bonus.
