Newly qualified Financial Controller job working for an SME marketing business based in the West End.

Your new company
I am working with a growing marketing business recruiting a Financial Controller position based in the West End. Up to now, the accounting function has been carried out by a part time Finance Director and a Finance Manager. Due to two consecutive successful years and plans for further growth both financially and in personnel, the current structure is not felt adequate to properly support and positively drive the profitability of the business. As the current FD will need to be less involved in the day to day running of the business from a finance perspective and take on an HR role as well within the agency, there is a need to significantly "seniorise" the current Finance Manger role to the new role of a Finance Controller with support from a junior finance staff member.

Your new role
As a recently qualified Finance Controller your new role is an integral part of the business covering all aspects of financial and management accounting as well as financial control of the business operations. It will interface with the Account Handlers who hold the client relation and act as a commercial support to them. This is a well suited for someone looking for their "next step up" before potentially becoming a Finance Director themselves. They will also work in conjunction with the Finance Director to manage key aspects of the running of the business from a HR perspective.

What you'll need to succeed
-You must be recently qualified looking for a varied and hands on role where you will be exposed to all areas of finance.
-You must also be either ACA / ACCA / CIMA qualified with 0-2 years post qualified experience

What you'll get in return
You will be offered the chance to work for a fast growing business exposed to all areas of the business. You will be given the autonomy on a day to day whilst still offered development and support from an entrepreneurial and driven FD to help shape and grow the finance team in your own personal way. As a business, this creative agency is dynamic and innovative. Ideas are shared and you are encouraged to be part of a collaborative business and have close involvement with non finance on a day to day.
