Finance Manager (finalist) in City of London, London, UK

Employer: Dataquest (UK) Ltd

Location: City of London, London, UK


Salary: £40,000 - £50,000 per annum

About Us

We’re a leading IT, Print and Telecoms Solutions company based in the heart of the business district, minutes’ walk from Liverpool Street, Moorgate, Old Street and Shoreditch High Street stations. We’re surrounded by bars, restaurants, cafes and pop-ups, and there’s even a bit of greenery nearby!

Our office space is open-plan and we have a friendly, social culture; from our shareholders down, we live the motto "Work hard, play hard", demonstrated by our social events throughout the year. We’re passionate about developing our talent; we invest in our people and support them to build a career with us.

What Do I Need?

As we’re looking for someone to act as a 'number 2’ to our FD, broad experience across the whole of the finance function, with a particularly strong understanding of the objectives and workings of internal financial control, is a must.

Our work environment is high volume and fast-paced, so you’ll need to be prepared to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in supporting your colleagues; you’ll need to be just as happy supporting our less-experienced members of the team as you are working alongside our FD.

The ideal candidate will be a finalist with a recognised accountancy body, and will:

  • Have excellent system skills with experience of using accounting software at an administrator level (candidates with Sage experience have a distinct advantage);
  • Have demonstrable experience successfully implementing and delivering projects and process improvements;
  • Have a good understanding of the various UK tax systems;
  • Have demonstrable experience in industry (non-practice)
  • Have experience of managing, supporting and developing others;
  • Be highly articulate, with excellent communication skills and the ability to deal with internal and external contacts at all level with confidence.
  • Be proactive and organised, with excellent time management, always delivering work to deadline.
  • Have a desire to grow and progress with the Company

What Will I Be Doing?

The role is a well-rounded and varied finance manager role. You’ll be expected to work across the finance function, from completing monthly commission calculations and sales reporting, to credit control, to audit, VAT, tax and project accounting, providing your support and expertise where required, ensuring that the department is run effectively and efficiently.

You’ll also work closely with our FD, supporting with annual budgeting and forecasting, and working on a number of exciting projects to complete (including implementing a paperless purchase invoicing system, and migrating to a new BACS platform) and you’ll be heavily involved in supporting him to ensure these projects are delivered successfully and to deadline.

We’re also looking to grow as a Company, so there will be the opportunity to pitch in and support with an acquisition process.

If this role sounds like a good fit for you, please submit your CV and a covering letter! We aim to do all our recruitment in house, so no agencies please.
