    The Company:

    The business is led by a talented CEO who is keen to grow and expand the business, which currently has a turnover of around £200 million and a team of 80. Although they are an established and well-funded business they have retained a flat-structure with a casual and fun working culture.

    They work specifically in the television and film sector, partnering with some of the world's leading producers and creators on programming and distribution.

    The Role:

    As the Royalty Accountant you will be reporting into an experienced Head of Finance who has great experience in developing talent. Your main duties will include managing relationships with 3rd party producers and creators, answering queries surrounding royalties and royalty reporting.

    With the business continuing to expand and acquire new businesses, the role will also grow and develop. There is a view to expand the royalty function within a year and hire an Assistant who would be a direct report. The expectation is for the Royalty Accountant to gain more commercial exposure and take on more commercial finance duties. This role is thus ideal for a candidate with royalty experience and a good understanding of finance & accounting.

    * Managing relationships with 3rd party producers & organisations
    * Dealing with royalty queries
    * Co-ordinating and managing invoices from clients
    * Cash forecasting future royalty payments

    * Experience with royalty accounting/royalty processing
    * Prior experience in a royalty position within TV & Film, Publishing, Media or Music.
    * Excellent communication and organisational skills
    * Strong Excel skills

    What we'd like to see (bonus):

    * Solid understanding or experience in finance & accounting
    * Experience working on outgoing royalties in TV & Film

    Salary: £40,000 - £45,000 (flexibility for exceptional candidates), plus discretionary bonus
