    Freelance Junior Copywriter



    Harmonic get great people and great organisations to work in tune together. And following a bumper start to 2021, we are excited to be seeking a talented Junior Copywriter to join our team on a part time freelance basis. You will help contribute to the voice of the brand, creating copy for use throughout the business and across its platforms for one of London's most exciting start-ups.



    This is perfect for an enthusiastic university student looking to gain some valuable experience to kickstart their career within Marketing. There is also an opportunity for the role to become permanent towards the end of the year. You will be working in one of the coolest, most creative workplaces right in the centre of the Stables Market, Camden Town, London.



    About Harmonic:

    Harmonic supply the finance, operations and legal professionals who make our clients brilliant. We work with some of the most exciting organisations in Europe, ranging from ground-breaking technology start-ups (Fintech, Software, AI, Robotics, Electronics, BioTech) and record labels through to major fashion labels, vegan food start-ups, leading furniture designers and media businesses. The recurring theme across our customers is 'non-corporate' businesses: if a company aren't innovative and values-driven, then they aren't the right fit for us.



    Led by Charlie Walker, the youngest-ever recipient of the prestigious Recruitment International 'Entrepreneur of the Year Award' and a judge for the Great British Business Awards, Harmonic is our founder's second business (having built his first to a £30 million turnover operation aged just 24 back in 2008). Charlie is also regarded as a thought leader within the London business community and is often asked to speak on topics including Leadership and Values In Business.



    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. Their intention is for the senior management team of 2023 to be 90% comprised of former employees.



    Our values are at the core of what we do and following a challenging year for everyone in 2020 we have doubled down on our commitment to the wider community and commitment to giving our people the support they need inside and outside of the world of work. Harmonic are proud to sponsor one of London's leading mental health charities - GetAhead - and make sure that everyone gets the day off to attend their annual festival at Omeara in London Bridge!



    We have a very active social scene which - although focussed upon online activities right now- provides new colleagues with a supportive environment within which to learn the ropes and to build relationships with colleagues. In normal (see: no global plague) circumstances, we have weekly drinks in Camden, regular gig attendance and fly to international music festivals (most recently Nova Batida in Lisbon) paid for by the company. Our insta will help to fill in the gaps here!



    This is really just the beginning and following the launch of our US business in Boston at the start of the year there are massive opportunities for people with ambitions to live and work overseas.



    The Role:



    We are seeking a true wordsmith with a genuine love of producing creative copy whilst operating a relaxed, honest and fluid writing style. You will be proactive, have excellent attention to detail and outstanding written skills. All the duties listed below will completed on an ad hoc basis.



    Duties:

    * Creating engaging copy to be used business wide, covering a range of industries & target audiences
    * Communicating the company tone of voice at all times and across all areas of the business, both internally and outbound content
    * Writing both technical and creative content, from articles and newsletters to engaging mailers
    * Working with and supporting the marketing & wider team on projects as needed

    Financial Director | Oxfordshire | Consultancy Business | £90k-£100,000



    Harmonic Finance are proud to recruit the next Financial Director for a very successful consultancy business based in Oxfordshire.



    The company

    The business is seeking a hands-on Financial Director to help support the continued rapid growth of their business. They are led by a thriving entrepreneur and deliver business-to-business services both independently (60% of revenue) and as Franchisor (40% of revenue). They've also developed a hugely scalable and highly profitable commercial model.



    The organisation has attained a series of quality standards and accreditations which have given them a competitive advantage in tendering processes and have put their environmental and sustainability credentials front and centre.



    The role

    This is a high-impact Financial Director role and will suit a candidate who has spent a recent part of their career within an owner-managed business. You will be acting as #2 to the CEO/Founder and will have direct top-table input on commercial and financial strategy.



    You will be a highly visible figure within the business. The role requires a 'player-coach': a candidate with the gravitas and emotional intelligence to lead and motivate their team and to compliment the CEO. Having an aptitude to lead and to build rapport with colleagues is an absolute must as you will be leading a Financial Controller, Management Accountant and transactional finance and payroll team.



    The company is in great shape but is scaling at a pace and although the balance sheet is healthy, there are some clear areas of improvement which the CEO would like to be addressed within the first year. Most importantly, this includes the lack of commercial insight and improved financial controls. The role would therefore suit a Head of Finance or Finance Director who has a passion for FP&A and who has strong hands-on skills with excel modelling. A passion for finance systems improvement and business partnering with operational colleagues would also be very helpful.



    Strategy

    Including a recent major acquisition, turnover is expected to increase very rapidly to circa £27 million for the next financial year. The company have developed a Target Operating Model which balances continued organic growth with further plans for acquisitions in the medium-term. Core objective include reaching £50 million turnover within 5 years and building a nationally-recognized brand.



    Culture

    Company culture is wonderfully open: very welcoming, lots of laughter and a focus upon mutual respect and displaying the company values. The CEO is seeking a Financial Director who will challenge his ideas and suggest new ones versus a "yes person", so an ability to think creatively and to communicate at a high level is a must.



    Essential Skills:

    * Fully-qualified ACA, ACCA or CIMA
    * At least 2 years experience at Finance Director or Head of Finance Level within a business with a turnover in excess of £10 million.
    * Experience of working within an owner-managed, entrepreneur-led business within the past 5 years.
    * Balanced aptitude for both financial and commercial accounting.
    * Good Excel skills (particularly of the purposes of forecasting and building simple models)
    * Strong leadership and management skills.
    * Process improvement experience.
    * Values-driven outlook. Our client are extremely community-minded.



    Bonus skills and experience:

    * Experience of working within a franchise structure would be helpful.
    * M&A and business integration experience.
    * Experience with Netsuite and/or Xero would be of benefit.
    * Previous background in Audit or Transactional Services



    Salary: £90,000-£100,000



    Interview process: Initial interviews with Harmonic Founder, Charlie Walker, followed by 2x interviews with the CEO/Founder and a further shareholder. Final stage is likely to be a short presentation task.

  • Doing what:

    Finance Director | South Oxfordshire | Professional Services | £90k-£100k

    Harmonic Finance are proud to have been retained to recruit the next Finance Director for one of Oxfordshire's most successful privately-owned professional services businesses.

    The company:

    Led by a hugely impressive entrepreneur, the business are seeking a hands-on Finance Director to help support the continued aggressive growth of their business.

    The company deliver business-to-business services both independently (60% of revenue) and as Franchisor (40% of revenue) and have subsequently developed a hugely scalable and highly-profitable commercial model.

    The organisation put their environmental and sustainability credentials front and centre, and have attained a series of quality standards and accreditations which have given them a competitive advantage in tendering processes.

    The role

    Acting as #2 to the CEO/Founder, this is a high-impact Finance Director role and will suit a candidate who has spent a recent part of their career within an owner-managed business. You will have direct top-table input on commercial and financial strategy and be a highly-visible figure within the business.

    The role requires a 'player-coach': a candidate with the gravitas and emotional intelligence to lead and motivate their team and to compliment the CEO, but also an individual who retains a passion to really get 'hands-on' with both the commercial and financial accounting. The company is in great shape, but it is scaling at pace and subsequently requires a candidate willing to get really hands-on with the detail in the first 6 months of the role.

    You will inherit a Financial Controller, Management Accountant and transactional finance and payroll team thus making an aptitude to lead and to build rapport with colleagues an absolute must. It should also be noted that the company 'own' the billing and AR processes for their franchisees.

    Although the balance sheet is healthy, there are some clear areas of improvement which the CEO would like to be addressed within the first year; namely lack of commercial insight and improved financial controls. The role would therefore suit a Head of Finance or Finance Director who has a passion for FP&A and who has retained strong hands-on skills with excel modelling. A passion for finance systems improvement and business partnering with operational colleagues would also be very helpful.

    Strategy:

    Including a recent major acquisition, turnover is expected to increase very rapidly to circa £27 million for the next financial year. The company have developed a Target Operating Model which balances continued organic growth with further plans for acquisitions in the medium-term. Core objective include reaching £50 million turnover within 5 years and building a nationally-recognized brand.

    Culture:

    Company culture is wonderfully open: very welcoming, lots of laughter and a focus upon mutual respect and displaying the company values. The CEO is seeking a Finance Director who will challenge his ideas and suggest new ones versus a "yes person", so an ability to think creatively and to communicate at a high level is a must.

    Work location:

    The company have a very forward-thinking attitude to remote working. However, given that their office is Covid-secure there is a preference for candidates who are open in future months to attending the office in person for at least part of the week once government advice changes. There will also be an expectation that you will travel to visit various Franchisee sites on regular occasions to ensure that Finance is outward-facing and finance business partners with colleagues effectively.


    Essential skills, qualifications and experience:

    * Fully-qualified ACA, ACCA or CIMA
    * At least 2 years experience at Finance Director or Head of Finance Level within a business with a turnover in excess of £10 million.
    * Experience of working within an owner-managed, entrepreneur-led business within the past 5 years.
    * Balanced aptitude for both financial and commercial accounting.
    * Good Excel skills (particularly of the purposes of forecasting and building simple models)
    * Strong leadership and management skills.
    * Process improvement experience.
    * Values-driven outlook. Our client are extremely community-minded.


    Bonus skills and experience:

    * Experience of working within a franchise structure would be helpful.
    * M&A and business integration experience.
    * Experience with Netsuite and/or Xero would be of benefit.
    * Previous background in Audit or Transactional Services



    Salary: £90-100,000

    Package: Discretionary bonus, private healthcare and equity (growth shares).

    Interview process: Initial interviews with Harmonic Founder, Charlie Walker, followed by 2x interviews with the CEO/Founder and a further shareholder. Final stage is likely to be a short presentation task.
