A unique company in York which offers customised training to prepare professionals for international working, is seeking a Finance/Accounts Manager to take overall control of this function and reporting responsibilities for this department.

Most of the UK-based training client locations is run in York where they offer a range of intensive language, professional communication and leadership courses. They deliver international leadership and team development courses globally, usually on clients' premises or in offsite residential training locations and are pioneers in their field. However, because of the vast and diverse nature of this company's services and where their clients are, it can present this department with unique challenges on a daily basis.

Working within a small, productive team you will work closely with the Operations Director with sole responsibility for dealing with all sales and purchase ledger invoices, setting up and chasing payments, dealing with payments to Freelancers and Contractors as well as expenses for them and 'off site' Directors.
As the person who has full responsibility of the Accounts within the UK, you will be involved with the preparation of payroll and the workplace pension calculations, these include zero hour contracts. However in the short-term this will be maintained by a 3rd party provider but you will be responsible for setting up and issuing wages, ensuring that staff and suppliers are paid correctly and on time. Monitoring daily the cash flow and management of petty cash is also a part of this busy role as is the ability to do all bookkeeping on Sage (or experience of other cloud based packages).

Controlling costs and bringing information to the attention of the Directors is also a main feature of this position, as is comparing budgets and producing reports to feed back to the Board.

This position is going to suit an experienced individual with a strong commercial acumen who has ideally worked with international customers, either qualified or qualified by experience.

Your communication skills need to be excellent as you will be liaising across a broad sector of cultures and nationalities both face to face and over the telephone. You need to be open minded, flexible and team orientated as this is a small team of individually, very busy professionals.

Analytically minded, you will thrive in an environment where there are ever changing priorities and where you feel like you are part of a family.
