An outstanding ability to multitask, be flexible and the capacity to take on a broad range of responsibilities are key.

 

The scope of this role encompasses daily accounting administration functions all the way through to assisting in strategic decision making.

  • Quarterly VAT submissions and regular management accounts
  • Liaising with external accountant for year-end reporting and R&D claims

 

Experience:

  • Relevant accounting qualification (ACA, ACCA, CIMA) with 2+ years post-qualification experience
  • Ideally, experience in a medium-sized ecommerce focused business with an international presence
  • International exposure and outlook with an interest to understand finance and accounting issues outside of the UK framework.

 

 Essential Skills:

  • Excellent attention to detail and organization
  • Proactive and a strong advocate for continuous improvement
  • Collaborative approach but able to work independently
  • Strong problem solving and ability to make decisions based on accurate and timely analysis

 

Additional requirements:

  • Interest, energy and flexibility to work in the fast-paced environment of a growing business and wear multiple hats.
  • Keen interest in cycling is a bonus.
  • Candidate must be authorized to work in the UK.

 

Based in: London
