Job Description

Finance Manager (Accounting) – Contractor FTC
Shaping tomorrow, today.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a fast-growth and successful next generation technology consultancy firm, which was recently ranked #2 in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100.

Who we are:

Kubrick exists to solve the global digital skills emergency, which is holding back organisations and people from harnessing the power of leading technology to evolve and transform. We are experts in unleashing the potential in humans and technology, shaping the workforce of tomorrow with the skills and talent needed today. We do this by growing and developing diverse groups of junior professionals with enthusiasm and potential into technology experts.

We are a multi-award-winning business that has been named the Market Disruptor of the Year and the Growing Business of the Year: Mid-Sized Company at the 2021 Growing Business Awards. Kubrick is recognised as the fastest-growing consultancy in Europe - and we also launched our branch in the US just last year. Our unique business model has disrupted the traditional consulting model, resulting in extensive annual growth for 5 years. 

In November 2021 we completed our first corporate transaction, being an investment partnership with leading mid-market private equity firm Bowmark Capital and we have recently expanded into the USA.

The Role:

To support the growth and development of the business we are looking to recruit a Finance Manager (Accounting) for 6 months to support the Financial Controller in developing first-class reporting and delivering an efficient audit and Financial Statements process whilst we recruit for the permanent position.
