Job Description

Independent British up-and-coming fashion house, retailing their own designer clothing and accessories, is searching for an Accounts Assistant for their Central London office.

As the stand-alone Accounts Assistant, you will be the sole point of contact for all financial responsibilities and accounting processes, so you'll come with previous experience in a diverse range of accounting. You'll also ideally have good knowledge of Sage and good Excel skills.

Main responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting with monthly management accounts
  • Managing AP and AR, credit control, commercial invoices, reconciliations, and order raising
  • Managing web sales and posting to Sage
  • Costing new designs with the owner / designer
  • Controlling stock levels, trade sales and direct orders
  • Liaising with shipping/delivery companies, overseeing international shipments
  • Managing VAT and duty fees on shipments

You'll also chip in with some non-accounting tasks on an ad-hoc basis - this is a small company so everyone will get involved when necessary.

This is a great chance to join an iconic British fashion label at its early stages of growth.
