What you’ll be doing
This is a stand-alone role, meaning all of KeyAGENTs finance requirements would start and end with you. You will report directly to the MD and regularly work alongside key stakeholders from the Operations Director to the software team. It’s important you are able to perform well as a one-man team, often working autonomously under pressure.
Ultimately your success in the role will be measured through the consistent increase in company profitability whilst ensuring all management accounting and bookkeeping functions are accurate and completed on time. You will always be on top of things like Payroll, VAT and year-end ensuring the finance function runs like clockwork.
Bearing in mind the overall goal being to increase profitability, you will ensure the company has a good cashflow, clients pay on time and suppliers are paid and happy. A key aspect of the role will be the use of data. The monthly invoicing processes heavily rely on data reports which require a very detailed eye including skilled excel manipulation and validation. You will work closely with the Software and Operations team to ensure data and invoices are correct and system changes are implemented.
Throughout all of the above, you will be drawing insight into the business identifying opportunities and threats to support KeyAGENT’s ambitious growth ambitions. You will be in control of your time and activities, so you can be creative in producing solutions to drive down costs, improve efficiency and increase revenue.
Who are we looking for?
