    Part-Time Finance Manager (3 day week) | Independent Digital Marketing Agency



    Harmonic Finance are proud to be working on a retained basis for one of the UK's most respected boutique marketing agencies. To support the co-owners following recent MBO activity, the business requires a Finance Manager (PQ and QBE applicants welcome).



    The requirement currently is for 3 days a week. Interviews to be covered via Zoom with duties to be carried out remotely from home until further notice.



    Small, but profitable, the agency presently has a full-time headcount of 13, plus freelance ad-hoc support. They are located in fantastic converted mid-century building furnished with beautiful Scandinavian-style furniture a short walk from Old Street station which they share with a film production business.



    Their unique selling points are twofold: they 'get' the luxury space like few other agencies, and have an enviable client list. Secondly- and unusually for a company of their size- they also provide marketing insight analysis and visualization solutions to their clients. Often on a recurring monthly retainer basis.



    The role



    Although you will have access to ad-hoc support from a CFO (est 1-3 days per month) and an accountancy practice, this role requires a real 'all rounder' who isn't afraid to balance some more complex duties with (low-volume) transactional duties. Your role will cover:



    * Production of the P&L and Management Accounts
    * Working with the Creative team and Account Directors to support with pricing strategies for project bids.

    * Update of the Weekly Cash Flow forecast and comparison of actuals to prior forecasts
    * Management of the quarterly reforecast process, including working with Account Directors to understand the timing of client spend
    * Responsibility for the Accounts Payable function, including preparation of fortnightly payment runs & reconciliation of media accounts
    * Management of the Accounts Receivable process; running the monthly invoicing cycle & working with client managers to monitor credit control and client credit insurance limits
    * Preparation and submission of Quarterly VAT returns
    * Responsibility for all aspects of company Payroll (via Moneysoft Program)
    * Liaising with an external accounting practice to prepare the annual statutory return





    Please note that the exec team view the role as an evolving one: if there is a business case for outsourcing some of these duties mid-term, or for hiring more colleagues, then they are open to discussing this. You will need to be prepared to cover all bases at the outset however- it's an 'all hands on deck' culture.



    Qualifications



    While there is a preference to recruit a qualified candidate, applications are also welcome from PQ or QBE candidates.



    Career prospects



    The company have a culture of 'promoting from within'. The exec team subsequently view this role as an audition to become the future Finance Director of the business given strong professional performance.



    Interview dates:



    Week beginning 18th May.

    Although you will have access to ad-hoc support from a very experienced CFO/FD (4 days per month if you feel this is helpful) and an accountancy practice, this role requires a real 'all-rounder' who isn't afraid to balance some more complex duties with (low-volume) transactional duties.

    Your role will cover:

    * Production of the P&L and Management Accounts
    * Working on controlling costs and maintaining profitability
    * Responsible for liaising with Senior management on budgeting and forecasting
    * Working with the Creative team and Account Directors to run Commercial Finance activities (including creating pricing strategies for project bids, studio bulling time and finance business partnering with the MD)
    * Weekly cashflow forecasting
    * Liaise with Accountancy practice to ensure accurate VAT and stat returns
    * Accounts Payable & Accounts Receivable

    What we need to see (essential):

    * At least Part-Qualified (ACCA/CIMA)
    * Experience working at Management Accountant or Finance Manager level
    * Past industry experience in the creative industries (TV, Film, Music, Media, Entertainment)

    What we'd like to see (bonus):

    * Prior work at a creative Agency (media, marketing, TV & Film, Design)

    Salary: £45,000 - £55,000

    Finance Director | Rapid Growth Luxury b2b Retailer | Old Street

    The Company:

    Headquartered in central London, our client is highly regarded within the European luxury business-to-business retail sector. Their turnover has grown from £30-£40 million within the past two years, prompting significant investment in new leadership hires prior to launching their first USA office in Q3 2020. Harmonic Finance are acting as sole, retained agent.

    Company culture and workplace:

    Working from their beautiful architect-designed offices, the culture of the business is professional, but defiantly non-corporate. In spite of significant recent growth in headcount the co-founders retain supportive communication with employees at all levels and there is a conscious focus upon providing team members with excellent professional development and career progression opportunities.

    Unsurprisingly, staff retention is excellent (many employees have remained with the business for over ten years). While in an industry not renowned for its diversity, it's noteworthy that this organisation are market-leading in this regard.

    The Role:

    The successful candidate will be the first full time Finance Director and will balance an ability to manage a 'best in class' commercial finance and financial reporting function with the capacity to undertake a vocal leadership role within the broader business. Finance does not sit as 'back office' at this company, and as such the role requires a candidate who is a confident communicator and influencer, with a drive to provide support and leadership on broader operational initiatives where required.

    Revenue is typically invoiced in the form of projects, so candidates with an aptitude for managing teams with a commercial 'project accounting' outlook will be looked upon favourably. This will be particularly so in instances where their outlook is geared towards establishing close finance business partnering relationships between Sales and Operations. The first six months at least- the role is suitable for a 'player coach' rather than a more hands-off strategy-focussed Finance Director.

    * Ensure successful delivery of payroll, pension administration and the production of quarterly commission statements to ensure accuracy and timeliness.

    * Overall control for the finance and ERP system (Netsuite) with responsibility for the maintenance and updating of the system.

    * Stock - oversee the monthly reconciliations for the product stock.

    * Ensure that the VAT and Intrastat returns are completed in a timely and accurate manner.

    * Ensure all financial policies are up to date and that there are appropriate internal controls in place over all accounting and financial transactions across the business.

    * Bank accounts/cashflow - oversee the company bank accounts and manage Treasury and FX policies as appropriate.

    * Refine and develop accounting processes and systems.

    * At least 2 years' experience at Finance Director or Head of Finance level within a business turning over in excess of £20 million.
    * Qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA
    * Strong aptitude for leading finance teams in businesses with a heavy project accounting focus.
    * Superb communication skills (including public presentations) and high level of emotional intelligence.
    * Evidence of strong leadership and management skills of teams of at least 4-5 people.

    Graduate Business Development / Assistant Community Analyst | Recruitment | London



    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper first 18 months, we're looking for one talented person to help us continue to grow and support Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director.

    Combining business development, networking, research, marketing and commercial negotiations, Harmonic Finance's Assistant Community Analysts are taken through a broad education in recruitment business development which offers unrivaled career progression.

    About Harmonic

    Harmonic supply accounting and finance professionals who enable our clients to be brilliant. Focusing on filling roles ranging from Chief Financial Officers through to Royalties Accountants, we work with some of the most exciting organisations in Europe, ranging from ground-breaking technology start-ups, through to major fashion labels. The common thread however is: 'non-corporate' clients.


    Led by Charlie Walker, the youngest-ever recipient of the prestigious Recruitment International' Entrepreneur of the Year Award', Harmonic is our founder's second business (having built his first to a £30 million turnover operation aged just 24 back in 2008). He and his co-founder Fin Glanvill are passionate about operating working cultures where values underpin everything. And where colleagues are rewarded for what they have contributed to the growth of the business.


    The Role

    Assistant Community Analyst is a broad introduction to recruitment and staffing, the position will be focused upon supporting Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director building trusted candidate communities for recruitment campaigns he is undertaking for senior leadership roles for our clients. No experience is necessary- you will be taught everything from the ground up.

    A large part of your role will be supporting your colleagues in the Harmonic Team by maintaining highly-accurate data concerning which candidates are available (think data champion!), what their needs are, and recommending candidates to colleagues for roles they may be suitable for. The good news for you? You will receive generous commission and targeted bonuses in relation to the quality of this data and any introductions you make.

    This role is a great introduction to a fast-moving, hyper-growth environment (our turnover is on course to grow 400% this year) you will receive mentoring from an award-winning leadership team and will be steadily coached toward becoming a community analyst where you will be responsible for winning and developing your own clients within 12-18 months.

    Daily and weekly targets will be used during your training so if you don't thrive in a competitive environment (albeit a super-friendly one!), then this probably isn't the role for you.

    Duties

    * Build a niche candidate community for Harmonic's Founder and MD's vacancies
    * Source information or 'leads' on urgent hiring opportunities for Harmonic to fill
    * Take responsibility for the quality of the Harmonic CRM data

    Work Environment and our Values

    Let's make no bones about it: we expect high standards. Harmonic Group is going places. And quickly. You should therefore expect to work long hours when needed, and not be too phased by the prospect of competition. However, while we expect our colleagues to apply themselves, we also pride ourselves on being model employers. Our working environment is supportive and empathetic, with advice and coaching on hand when needed outside of our regular review process. Above all, our three core values: Knowledge, Respect and Community aren't just there for PR purposes, they underpin everything we do internally as a business, as well as externally.

    And although we're fans of great British tailoring, we only pull out the suits and formal dress for client meetings and parties. It's important to us that you're able to work comfortably and express your own personality. In keeping with this, our offices are based out of co-working spaces where we work alongside some of Europe's most exciting creative and technology businesses. As a Labs.com member, you will gain regular access to talks by entrepreneurs ranging from the founder of Boiler Room through to the CEO of Barclays. We even have our own magazine. And dogs!

    Training

    We're usually a modest bunch (or at least by industry standards!). But Harmonic offer the best training and coaching. Bar none. As you'll be joining us nice and early, you'll reap the full benefits of reporting directly into an individual who has 10 proven years of developing Trainees into elite consultants and Board Directors. Check our site and Linkedin profiles to see what people have to say.

    What we'll need to see throughout the recruitment process (essential)

    * Fantastic verbal and written communication skills
    * Good educational background

    * A competitive spirit
    * An appreciation and sharing of our values

    Package & Benefits

    * Basic salary of £18,000-20,000 plus commission bonus' (estimated a further£4-6k within the first 12 months)
    * Annual Bonus (linked to individual display of our values)
    * 1 x company weekend away (paid for by Harmonic!)
    * 1 x individually-targeted weekend away (New York or similar)
    * Weekly SPIN, Yoga, Pilates, HIIT Circuit Training
    * Incentives relating to music, health and fitness and food

    Graduate Business Development / Assistant Community Analyst | Recruitment | London

    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper first 18 months, we're looking for one talented person to help us continue to grow and support Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director.

    Combining business development, networking, research, marketing and commercial negotiations, Harmonic Finance's Assistant Community Analysts are taken through a broad education in recruitment business development which offers unrivaled career progression.

    About Harmonic

    Harmonic supply accounting and finance professionals who enable our clients to be brilliant. Focusing on filling roles ranging from Chief Financial Officers through to Royalties Accountants, we work with some of the most exciting organisations in Europe, ranging from ground-breaking technology start-ups, through to major fashion labels. The common thread however is: 'non-corporate' clients.


    Led by Charlie Walker, the youngest-ever recipient of the prestigious Recruitment International' Entrepreneur of the Year Award', Harmonic is our founder's second business (having built his first to a £30 million turnover operation aged just 24 back in 2008). He and his co-founder Fin Glanvill are passionate about operating working cultures where values underpin everything. And where colleagues are rewarded for what they have contributed to the growth of the business.


    The Role

    Assistant Community Analyst is a broad introduction to recruitment and staffing, the position will be focused upon supporting Harmonic's Founder and Managing Director building trusted candidate communities for recruitment campaigns he is undertaking for senior leadership roles for our clients. No experience is necessary- you will be taught everything from the ground up.

    A large part of your role will be supporting your colleagues in the Harmonic Team by maintaining highly-accurate data concerning which candidates are available (think data champion!), what their needs are, and recommending candidates to colleagues for roles they may be suitable for. The good news for you? You will receive generous commission and targeted bonuses in relation to the quality of this data and any introductions you make.

    This role is a great introduction to a fast-moving, hyper-growth environment (our turnover is on course to grow 400% this year) you will receive mentoring from an award-winning leadership team and will be steadily coached toward becoming a community analyst where you will be responsible for winning and developing your own clients within 12-18 months.

    Daily and weekly targets will be used during your training so if you don't thrive in a competitive environment (albeit a super-friendly one!), then this probably isn't the role for you.

    Duties

    * Build a niche candidate community for Harmonic's Founder and MD's vacancies
    * Source information or 'leads' on urgent hiring opportunities for Harmonic to fill
    * Take responsibility for the quality of the Harmonic CRM data

    Work Environment and our Values

    Let's make no bones about it: we expect high standards. Harmonic Group is going places. And quickly. You should therefore expect to work long hours when needed, and not be too phased by the prospect of competition. However, while we expect our colleagues to apply themselves, we also pride ourselves on being model employers. Our working environment is supportive and empathetic, with advice and coaching on hand when needed outside of our regular review process. Above all, our three core values: Knowledge, Respect and Community aren't just there for PR purposes, they underpin everything we do internally as a business, as well as externally.

    And although we're fans of great British tailoring, we only pull out the suits and formal dress for client meetings and parties. It's important to us that you're able to work comfortably and express your own personality. In keeping with this, our offices are based out of co-working spaces where we work alongside some of Europe's most exciting creative and technology businesses. As a Labs.com member, you will gain regular access to talks by entrepreneurs ranging from the founder of Boiler Room through to the CEO of Barclays. We even have our own magazine. And dogs!

    Training

    We're usually a modest bunch (or at least by industry standards!). But Harmonic offer the best training and coaching. Bar none. As you'll be joining us nice and early, you'll reap the full benefits of reporting directly into an individual who has 10 proven years of developing Trainees into elite consultants and Board Directors. Check our site and Linkedin profiles to see what people have to say.

    What we'll need to see throughout the recruitment process (essential)

    * Fantastic verbal and written communication skills
    * Good educational background

    * A competitive spirit
    * An appreciation and sharing of our values

    Package & Benefits
