Job Description

Are you an entrepreneurial Manager or Senior Manager from a small firm accountancy practice background, looking for an exciting newly created opportunity where you can really make your mark on a rapidly growing new practice? Are you looking to work in a dual role working directly with the owner of the business, where half your time will be spent working on external clients and the other half will be managing the internal affairs of the business (ie in a Head of Finance & Operations role)? Are you also looking for a role where you will work with many high profile media, production and creative clients? Are you looking to work for a new business which already has a number of clients and is expected to grow rapidly in 2021? Are you also looking for a role with a very large element of working remotely / home working? Reporting to and working closely with the owner of the business, your role will be split into 2 areas – managing a portfolio of mainly media and creative clients and handling all their needs, plus working internally on the group and managing all the financial affairs of the business as well as recommending and improving internal systems, controls, and procedures. For external clients you will be responsible for managing the firms portfolio, managing a small number of staff, carrying out assignments in a hands on capacity (statutory and management accounts, production accounts, simple tax returns, and managing staff / reviewing bookkeeping and VAT work), plus helping to grow the client portfolio. The client portfolio currently stands at £160k GRF and is expected to grow to £300k to £400k by the end of 2021 and the firm has big plans to expand going forwards. For the Head of Finance / Internal responsibilities, you will be in charge of ensuring the practice runs efficiently, assess and improve the firms systems, controls and procedures and working with the owner of the business on all firms financial and operational matters. You will be in charge of KPI’s, reports, analysis, budgets, internal management accounts, business planning and providing the owner with information in order to help make business decisions. You will be the number 2 in the firm and you will play a major part in all business decisions. Progression to full partner grade is expected after one to two years.

To be considered for this exciting newly created role you must be a qualified ACA Manager or Senior Manager from a small practice background, or made the move to industry and looking for a dual role where you can carry out some client facing duties again. You must have 3-5 years PQE experience (or more) and have experience of a mixed varied role including producing accounts, basic tax returns, managing staff and managing a portfolio of clients. You must also hold ambitions to become a Partner in a thriving and rapidly growing entrepreneurial accountancy practice firm. Experience of media, production and creative clients would be an advantage but not essential (an interest in media companies is required). You must be entrepreneurial, a team player and be looking to make your mark and progress in a new but rapidly growing practice.

This rapidly growing practice has a great reputation due to the owners contacts in the media, creative and production industries. The firm mainly works with fast-growing media production & creative SME’s, start-up’s and scale-up’s although they are branching out into new industries all the time. The business opened recently and already has a portfolio of £160k, which is expected to grow to £300k to £400k by the end of 2021. You will work directly with the owner of the business and can expect to be part of all decision making and helping the business to grow and thrive. Overall this is an excellent opportunity for an entrepreneurial Manager / Senior Manager from a small practice background, looking to really make their mark on a new and growing practice in a dual role where your time will be split between client facing duties and Head of Finance duties, in a role with progression to Partnership on offer.
