Assistant Management Accountant - CIMA / ACCA Studier | Marketing & Communications Group
Southampton, SO15
Up to £30,000 DOE + Study Support + Benefits

++ We are a collection of marketing agencies and a culture consultancy, each with their own brand and own identity. They work with big brands on huge campaigns where no two days are the same ++

The Finance team works alongside other group services functions, such as HR and IT, to deliver an exceptional service to the agencies, making sure we’ve got everything covered so they can focus on outstanding work.

We’re not your usual office environment and don’t really do corporate, with a casual dress code and a bar (yes, an actual bar in the office and it’s free!) we offer the opportunity for growth and development in a friendly and fun environment.

The Assistant Management Accountant Opportunity:

We find finance fascinating, which makes finance jobs here infinitely more interesting. Finance fuels our business, making sure we can work efficiently and grow better. It’s the thing that will ensure we achieve our vision of building a valuable, sustainable and independent group of businesses.

You’ll be working at the heart of our business, taking advantage of the career and development opportunities. With a desire to broaden your knowledge and skills, you will have just started your CIMA / ACCA qualification, with this role offering you the chance to receive a study package to help you complete your qualification. 

About You:

You’ll be an outgoing and confident individual who can hit the ground running, supporting the production of month end management accounts, preparing accruals and prepayments, reconciling system control accounts, as well as producing management reports, assisting with VAT returns and supporting the annual budget and forecast processes.

You’ll need to be flexible, able to adapt to cover and support with purchase and sales ledgers by being involved with cash allocations, daily reconciliations, payment runs and raising sales invoices and credit notes. But you’ll be up for any challenge and keen to prove your potential by always looking to see how we can work better and smarter, having the confidence to challenge and develop methods of best practice.

With experience in a similar role, you will have fast and accurate data entry skills, a good knowledge of accounts along with excellent communication and interpersonal skills which will help you create great working relationships across the business. You will also have experience in using finance systems such as Paprika, using this to do ledger postings and developing and producing system reports. Ideally you would have worked in a similar creative environment and are looking at furthering your professional qualifications. You will also have ambition and commercial acumen, along with a ‘can do’ attitude and are confidential by nature. 

You will be working with employees of all levels across the business, helping them with any questions they may have, guiding them through the financial processes, providing query resolution to business stakeholders along with ensuring procedures are adhered to. You will require an adaptable style of working with a flexible approach. You will have a desire to understand the business, supporting the business objectives whilst proactively helping others.


In return we are offering a competitive salary and benefits package which includes private health care, cycle to work scheme and discounted shopping together with social events and a bonus scheme. You will also be working alongside a great team in a lovely environment with a great work life balance.
