Ever get bored of the same crap, but on a different day. You have two weeks of preparing for month end, then you do month end, then you try and add value by implement some really efficient new processes, only to get told by the Senior Finance Analyst, who asked the Finance Manager, who asked the Financial Controller, who asked the Head of Finance who asked the Finance Director, who needed to go to the board in the USA...Fast forward 3 months, and the board in the USA told the Finance Director, who told the Head of Finance, who told the Financial Controller, who told the Finance Manager who told the Senior Finance Analyst to tell you, that you can't improve that process because it's not a standard practice across the business. All you wanted to do was input a basic macro that meant the report would take 30 minutes rather than 3 days!!

Nevertheless, they're a big blue chip and you know it's good for your career right?!?!


Good for your career is the ability to flex your accounting muscles! Showcase that MS Excel prowess. Adding commercial value, improving or creating new processes to bring the business into the 21st century! Who knows, maybe even support the implementation of a new accounting package. 

In the infamous words of Her Royal Highnesses' finest 22nd Regiment of Special Air Service, "Who Dares, Wins", so are you brave enough to leave your cosy corporate bubble? Are you the next Ant Middleton of Accounting??  

Do you have the courage to challenge the CEO of a £2m business? Are you brave enough to look at processes and drag them out of the dak ages? Do you have spine to admit when you need support? 

Well then we need be able to:

Put together Management Accounts

Effectively reconcile balance sheets and review P&L's 

Deliver insightful financial models that will allow for concise business decisions

Be CIMA/ACCA finalist or equivalent experience

Demonstrate commercial acumen 

More important than anything, we need you to want to love coming to work! 

If this floats your boat and you can live with:

£23k-£28k per annum

25 days holiday plus BH

Onsite parking 


Then perhaps we need to have a conversation.
