Olsson Fire & Risk UK Ltd is a fire safety design consultancy with a reputation for quality, innovation and technical excellence. This rapidly growing SME was founded in 2015 and is led by three Directors who all have extensive track records in world class companies.
These reputations and sound client relationships have enabled the consultancy to continually secure prestigious projects such as the new European Headquarters for Google and The All England Lawn Tennis Club to name but two.


Working closely with the Directors, responsibilities will include establishing and overseeing robust financial management, periodical statutory and management reporting, and ad hoc involvement in commercial matters. This is a standalone role until business demands necessitates support. In addition to budgeting, forecasting, variance reporting and year end accounts, you will also be hands on with accounts processing and credit control. This is an opportunity to take full ownership and development of the accounts function which is expected, in time, to make significant business contributions. Occasional travel is required to offices between London and Edinburgh, to develop relationships and help managers/consultants with budgeting processes. Other duties, though not extensive, will involve tax matters, statutory and company policy compliance, and assisting with Company Secretarial duties. You will also develop stakeholder relationships with Banks, Auditors, Solicitors, Suppliers and Clients.


As an aspirational UK qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, ACMA), having gained a little post qualification experience in industry or Practice, you will be seeking your first Financial Controllership. You may have already secured your first Financial Controller role but would prefer to work in a more entrepreneurial environment in a similar role. To succeed you must have the drive to make a difference, be commercially aware and take pride in achieving high standards. Strong technical accounting and Excel skills are essential. You should also be able to demonstrate achievements, effective prioritisation in changing environments, good communication skills and a little entrepreneurial spirit. Though a committed team player, you should also be able to exercise initiative.
For the right candidate this is an exciting role which will develop toward full commercial responsibilities, subject to growth and performance.
