The Company

At Fy! our purpose is to empower creativity. People come to Fy! to discover unique and wonderful things and to realise their creative vision for their home. Our mission is to make the world of design discoverable, affordable and instantly accessible.

For designers, artists and brands, Fy! is a way to share their creative vision and convert it into income. Fy! lets them build a brand, a business, and a life doing what they love. So far Fy! ships over 150k products from 2,000 creators to over 30 countries - with free shipping and returns! But we're just getting started.

One of Europe's fastest growing consumer brands, we are an ambitious team of creators, designers, analysts and coders split between offices in London, Berlin and Zoom. We're backed by top European amp; US VCs and angels who've previously worked in or invested in businesses such as Deliveroo, Thread, Instacart, Superawesome and ASOS to name a few.

The Role

Are you a part qualified Accounts Assistant who wants to take their next steps to being a Finance Manager/Financial Controller with a specific focus on Financial Reporting?

This role is all-encompassing to enable you to have a good understanding of all the operational processes in Finance and how they all work together. You will be involved in Business as Usual (BAU) activities such as:

  • Payment Runs
  • Maintaining the Sales, Payables and Receivables ledger
  • Reconciliations including Bank and Supplier
  • VAT Returns, Sales Tax Returns, and other compliance
  • Assisting with Cash Flow management and Budget.

Once you have grasped BAU activities, your role will have a heavy focus on reporting:

  • Development of regular Internal Reporting with the Finance Manager
    • Establishing appropriate timelines for Monthly Reporting with a balance between accuracy and speed
    • Continuous development and improvement of accuracy of both Pamp;L and Balance Sheet
    • Working with the CFO on Board Reporting, including Financial and non-Financial KPIs.
  • Creating the Statutory Accounts with the Accountants. You will:
    • Be first port of call with all queries
    • Use your awareness of Internal (e.g. Operational issues) and External (e.g. Accounting Standards) changes that will have an impact on the Statutory Accounts and plan accordingly.

In addition to the above, you will work closely with the Finance Manager on upcoming projects; how far involved you are in these depends on, 1 your capacity, 2 your willingness to challenge yourself.


Ideally you will have worked in an Accounts Team for a couple of years with an understanding of what ‘good’ reporting looks like. You will:

  • Have strong to advanced Excel skills
  • Have excellent attention to detail
  • Know the importance of prioritisation
  • Experience with Xero is desired though not necessary.

This role is for someone who likes to be hands on and is not scared to juggle a few things at the same time. You must be diligent, a quick learner, and understand that perfection is not always the best solution in a growing Finance team.

In return, you will be supported by an experienced team who will take your development seriously to help you excel in your role, and career.


What we offer
  • Competitive salary and pension
  • Generous staff discount - fill your home with awesome designer gear.
  • Want to work in a specific way? We're flexible and want you to be comfortable, happy and productive as part of the team.
  • This is an unparalleled experience to work in one of Europe’s fastest growing brands whilst making a name for yourself. When we hit our objectives, you’ll inevitably be one of the most sought after talents in growth in Europe.
  • Impact and influence - you’ll be joining a small but high performance team to build and develop a global function. You’ll have an immediate, high impact on the business.
