The Accountant Role: POSITION FILLED
An experienced businesses accountant who can consult for London SW6 digital start-up that’s yet to launch.
It would be great if the applicant was used to working with start-ups as they need to bring rigour to P&L, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow and day-to-day reporting/bookkeeping processes. A potential requirement for experience with Sage Accountancy Tools – but no biggy as a professional accountant will pick it up easily.
Flexible and for negotiation. Initially, a couple of day across two weeks to bring shape to the numbers and processes. And then, no more than one day a week and could be fewer once things get going.
For negotiation. But this is a pre-launch start-up so it will be lean initially.
Life + accountancy experience essential. But please advise us why your professional qualifications are right for the task at hand.
The team live in London, Fulham SW6 and work out of White City W12
Providing they live near to those postcodes, the team are very happy to meet at the applicant’s home if, going forward, that makes face-to-face check-ins easier.
It’s a little under-wraps at the moment.
We can share that it’s a lean start-up with a project that will help families and nannies find each other. And other projects are in the pipeline that will help families.
There is a wealth of digital and marketing experience in the team (of two!) but financial experience and stewardship are not strong suits.
Basically, a boss is needed when it comes to the numbers!
The Ideal Accountant:
The team would love to find someone that’s stepped out of their professional career (potentially for a while) but who would like to re-engage with a more flexible, consultancy type role within a small team. Perhaps even someone who is looking for a side hustle to family life or who is looking for a mini-challenge now kids have flown the nest?
They are likely to have worked for a start-up / small business or a marketing/agency type role, managing the firm’s accounts.
If the above is of interest, please do send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your CV and/or a link to your LinkedIn profile and/or a covering note for review.
We leave it to you on how to best show why we are in safe hands.
The next stage is a telephone interview or local meet-up to explore the fit.
If you’ve read this and feel the role would be a walk in the park skills-wise but you’re too ‘out of the game’ to get it – please do get in touch. We’d love nothing more to benefit from that depth of experience.
