Reporting to the Finance Director and Board you are a highly commercial and business minded accountant with strong strategic ability who thrives in an entrepreneurial environment. This is a fabulous opportunity for a highly motivated person looking to work in a challenging, but exciting role.
My client is one of the fastest growing technology companies of their type in the UK. They've succeeded in a competitive industry by being different. Different in the way they treat their customers, different in the way they build their culture. Different in the way they recruit for their most important resource, their staff.
They focus on recruiting and developing the best people possible in all positions. Their company culture is to be 'Better than Best Practise' in everything they do. This means constantly working to support the growth and development of their staff and ensuring that they are always doing everything possible to provide a fantastic working environment.
So what does that look like to their staff? It means offering competitive employment packages, with benefits that extend beyond everyone else's 'standard' offering. It means being an accredited Investor In People, providing individual training budgets for staff and progression plans that help them build a career, not just a job. It's offering the little things that make a big difference, like a benefits system that gives staff discounted life essentials such as gym memberships, mobile phone insurance, restaurants and shopping.
