Jobs

Financial Accountant/Analyst

Location: London

Courier is the defining media brand for a new generation who want to live and work on their own terms. We’ve been telling insightful and inspiring stories of modern business through print, podcasts, events and more since launching in 2013. London-based but with an international perspective, our mission is to help you work better, live smarter and be happier.

Courier is an equal-opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Courier is searching for a full-time financial accountant/analyst to assist the Finance Director in the fun analytical stuff, the interesting project/strategic stuff and the more mundane payables stuff.  It’s a small team, meaning that you will gain exposure to the entire business whilst also having a dotted reporting line into our parent, Mailchimp - a leading global marketing platform for small business.  

We see this role as a hybrid accounting/analyst role so we’re looking for an all-round multi-tasker that demonstrates a strong work ethic, a willingness to pitch in wherever needed whilst also being intuitive and proactive enough to identify problems that need solving and processes that need improving. 

Though based with the Courier team in London you will also have regular contact with the US based Mailchimp team. This is a rare opportunity that presents the best of both worlds - the relative autonomy and excitement of working in a small business but also being able to lean on the experience and support of our great parent, Mailchimp.

What you'll do

• Support Director in providing timely and effective management reporting and analytics, including monthly BVA analysis and performance against key performance metrics

• Create quantitative analysis from large data sets across our various product verticals and interpreting such data into succinct and digestible visuals

• Maintain and improve the monthly revenue and reporting process

• Manage the payables process - vendor payments, subscriptions, corporate credit card etc.

• Assist in developing ad-hoc analyses and financial models to assist in our strategic decision making processes

• Assist in the development of financial reporting presentations

• Assist in the development, preparation and analysis of the annual budget - working with various teams to analyse and build from a bottom up perspective

• Collaborate with all financial functions including corporate development, accounting (internal and external), tax and treasury.

What you'll bring

• Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting/Finance with preferably 3+ years of experience

• Ability to build and maintain financial models

• Attention to detail and strong analytical skills

• Strong communication skills and ability to build strong relationships with key stakeholders

• Ability to prioritise workload and show initiative in problem solving

• Advanced Excel

• Experience with an ERP system (ideally Netsuite!)

• Likely have experience with Google Suite

This role is full time and is based in London, although Courier is currently working remotely. Send your CV along with a letter explaining why you’re the right person for the role to jobs@couriermedia.com. Please include the words “Financial Analyst’’ in the subject.
