My client is a luxury, high end jewellery brand who are looking for a Senior Management Accountant to join their retail Head Office in London. The company is in it's 10th year and has seen significant growth over the past five years; particularly in ecommerce. They now have a turnover of £25 million. Despite it's success, the company has managed to retain it's small, "family feel" office culture which will enable you to take on a wide remit of responsbilities and have true autonomy over your work.
As the Senior Management Accountant, you will report directly into the Financial Controller. You will be responsible for:
- Completing month end reconciliations and analysis
- Reviewing stock levels and building relationships with the operations and merchandising teams
- Gross margin analysis
- Financial Year End and Audit
- Budgeting and Forecasting
- Quarterly VAT returns
- Ad-hoc project work for the business and analysis on performance
The ideal candidate for the role of Senior Management Accountant will have excellent commercial knowledge of the retail industry and will be self-motivated and driven. You may be a candidate who has experience of auditing retail businesses in practice although you will need to have had some experience of hands-on accounting. Alternatively, you may be in your first industry role looking for your next challenge. You will be proactive and able to work to deadlines. In return for this, my client will be offering a good salary along with some great benefits and the opportunity to join a growing, successful business.
