Reporting into an experienced Finance Business Partner, this role will be responsible for assisting on all aspects of the monthly reporting cycle and long-term financial planning.

The key duties and responsibilities of this Assistant Finance Business Partner role are as follows:

  • Provide ad hoc financial support to your budget holders on mini projects as required.

This is the perfect opportunity for a proactive, determined individual with experience in management accounts who is keen to learn the ropes, really push themselves and shape their finance career within a vibrant, collaborative environment. Although home based initially, applicants must live within a commutable distance of their offices in North London.

The successful candidate will:
