Progressive finance assistant | Post-production Media Company | £26,000 | Need 6 months experience in finance


Your new company
This post-production media company is located in the heart of the London West End by Oxford Circus Station. As you enter the front door there is a company barista who makes subsidised coffees for company employees. The company has a relaxed atmosphere and colleagues are very sociable with a dress down attire.

Your new role
You will be reporting to the Finance Analyst and will be positioned in an Accounts Assistant role where you will have a great deal of support and training giving you the chance to grow and develop further in finance.

To begin with the role will be dealing with supplier queries, expenses, petty cash, invoicing and credit card reconciliations but as the position develops in the first couple of months the finance analyst will teach you how to do month end journals, month end reporting, petty cash reporting, journals, cost centre reallocation as well as analysis of the nominal ledger and reporting packs using Excel. Eventually the idea of the role is that you will be responsible for your own cost centres and can take ownership in an autonomous role.

What you'll need to succeed
You must be enthusiastic about finance with a goal to learn and grow your finance experience. You must be confident with the ability to chat to a wide range of colleagues. You must be sociable and down to earth to fit into the fun and creative team dynamic. A finance degree or early studies in AAT/ ACCA or CIMA would be beneficial so that you have a background understanding of finance. At least 6 months experience in a finance based role is required.

What you'll get in return
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to grow and learn within a finance based role. You will have the opportunity to pick up new skills and will have a dedicated manager who is extremely willing to offer you opportunity and new skills. The position will be confirmed for 6 months but the reality is that it will be for at least 1 year and could go permanent. The team you will be working in is a team of 4 in finance which sits within a wider organisation of 20 in finance so there is lots of opportunity within this company. Hours are relatively flexible and the location is great- right by oxford circus station.
