Finance Manager

£28,000 - £35,000 dependant on experience

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in an ambitious, enthusiastic, growing company.

The Business

Kingdom Creative is a highly ambitious, award winning video production company.

We creates compelling content for a client list which includes: Porsche, Aston Martin, Hilton Hotels, Bentley, Triumph Motorcycles, and Formula 1.

We have continued to grow despite the current global pandemic thanks, in part, to our unique business model and the strong relationship we have developed over the years with our clients.

In more normal times our home is a converted barn, a warm and welcoming office environment set in the Bedfordshire countryside where we breathe fresh air as ideas come to life amongst peaceful surroundings and beautiful views. We go the extra mile to make sure that our team feel appreciated and valued, promoting a happy and productive working environment.

In 2021 we are looking to expand our team as we grow our client base.  The finance team currently consists of a part-time Head of Finance and a part-time Accounts Manager.  We are looking to recruit a full time member of the finance team to share out the existing finance team responsibilities as the company continues to grow and help add a new focus on efficiencies, robust finance procedures and project accounting.

The Role

As Finance Manager your responsibilities will include the following:

  • Overall responsibility of the sales ledger (to include new client set up and agreement of payment plans, sales invoice creation and reconciliation, chasing payments).
  • Review and reconciliation of project spend in conjunction with the Production Team and recording of project spend in Quickbooks.
  • Analysis and review of financial reporting and profitability by project
  • Assisting Head of Finance with:
    • Income forecasting
    • Monthly management accounts
    • Quote templates
    • VAT returns
    • Payroll
    • Other adhoc reporting
    • Insurance policies
    • Annual audit process

Criteria

The successful candidate will be a fully qualified or finalist accountant (ACA/CIMA/ACCA) with previous experience of working in a similar role.  Experience of working in a service industry company is highly preferable. Strong excel skills are an absolute essential as is familiarity with accounts packages (ideally Quickbooks). Attention to detail is key as is the ability and desire to query data and to look to improve processes. The successful candidate needs to be able to work well as part of a small team and be prepared to have a hands on approach with all finance tasks.  Equally important is the confidence to work on your own initiative and be able to prioritise and manage own workload in a busy environment. This is a fantastic opportunity to work in an ambitious, enthusiastic, growing company. Working closely with the Head of Finance offers the chance to have real insight and input into all financial workings of the company.
