Highly successful growing Design Agency in Central London - turnover now £3.5m - is seeking an experienced Finance Manager/Financial Controller. The role will report to the MD and to an external part time FD, and will replace the existing Finance Manager/Financial Controller who is retiring.

The company is seeking an all-rounder, happy to do a stand-alone role at this stage and also work with the MD, contributing strategic ideas, advice and analysis to aid the decision making process and facilitate growth and development.

The company has a high volume, busy workload in project design, consultancy and product fulfilment. The role will be varied and will include responsibility for:-

  • All day to day accounting including bookkeeping, ledgers, VAT, management accounts
  • Review of accounting systems, implementing enhancements as the company grows and upgrading from Quickbooks to Xero
  • Providing the board with quality management information and variance analysis to aid decision-making
  • Management of working capital and monitoring project work-in-progress
  • Involvement in logistics and shipping issues, liaising with factories overseas
  • Liaison with auditors and advisors with regards to year-end and overseas tax issues
  • Involvement in administrative issues such as reviewing annual insurance policies.

The contribution of the new Finance Manager/Financial Controller will be key to the strategic growth of the business. The company has a friendly and relaxed environment and a strong ethic of employee care and offers a profit share scheme for all staff.

You should have extensive experience in a similar role in a small high volume business as a Company Accountant, Finance Manager or Financial Controller and you should be happy in a sole role at this stage working closely with the Board.
