  • Role:

    Finance Director | South Oxfordshire | Professional Services

  • Type:
    Permanent
  • Where:
    South Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire
  • Starts:
    ASAP
  • Salary
    £90000 — £100000.00
    Per annum + + EQUITY
  • Industry:
    Consultancy
  • Doing what:

    Finance Director | South Oxfordshire | Professional Services | £90-100,000
    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 an elite 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. 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 talented Head of Finance, 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 extremely 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. The role would therefore suit a 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 (subject to government advice). 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.
    * Balanced aptitude for both financial and commercial accounting.
    * Strong leadership and management skills.
    * Process improvement experience.

    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.

    Harmonic Finance are proud to be working exclusively with one of the UK's leading Fintech start-up success stories.

You will also own the consolidations from the current single European entity (soon to be joined by a US and Asian entity), albeit the accounting is not - we understand- especially complex.

    Stat accounts have historically been outsourced, but you will be given the remit to make the call as to whether these should be in-sourced and led under your remit.

    Although the role may develop more commercial activities as the business continues to scale, it is best suited to candidates who have a passion and aptitude for technical accounting rather than FP&A.

FCA regulatory reports will also fall under your remit, but no experience of creating these previously is necessary.

    * ACA or ACCA fully qualified
    * Experience of accounting to IFRS standards.
    * Experience of consolidating at least one non-UK entity into a UK topco.
    * Ability to work autonomously with very clear boundaries and authorisations.
    * Good values and ethics.

    What we'd like to see (Non-Essential):

    * Some background in Audit would be useful.
    * Fintech or Financial Services (Hedge Fund, Investment Banking, Coprorate Finance, Venture Capital, Private Equity, Asset Management) would be looked upon favourably.
    * Experience within a start-up or scale-up business.

    Salary: £70-80,000

    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.
