  • Processing Purchase Orders and Invoices
  • Identifying and raising queries
  • Assisting in Payment runs

You’ll have

To succeed in our finance team, you’ll have a desire to kick start your career in finance by doing CIMA Level 4 Apprenticeship programme. As we have to follow apprenticeship guidelines, we’ll be unable to consider candidates that already hold a qualification at level 4 or higher in finance (including formal training). You’ll also need 3 GCSEs (or equivalent) at grades A-C in any subject and GCSE Maths and English (or equivalents) at grades D or above.
A really great candidate for this role will have:
• strong communication skills as you have to build great relationships with suppliers and stakeholders across the business
• resilience to perform under pressure and stay positive when things get busy
• strong numeracy and attention to detail – it’s essential as you can spot any mistakes as they come up
• enjoy spreadsheets and fancy pivot tables as we tend to use excel quite a lot

You’ll get

  • £20,000 a year (the fixed amount for apprenticeships)
  • for the ‘formal study’ bit, you’ll complete an 15 to 18 – month CIMA Certificate qualification and to put those studies into practice, you’ll learn all about buying stuff at innocent
You’ll also get loads of opportunities to:
  • develop yourself with in-house courses
  • learn from the best team in the business. (Don’t tell anyone we said that)
This is the perfect role for someone who wants to make a career in finance. You will gain an understanding of how a top FMCG business works and depth knowledge in the purchase to pay processes. You’ll become a part of a growing and exciting finance team where you’ll own several areas of the business in purchase ledger. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved with projects for process efficiencies.
You will help us to keep doing business the right way – keeping innocent one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work, using our B Corp status to inspire wider change, and reinforcing our culture of staying little as we grow big.
In return for everything you can bring, we can offer you an exciting, challenging role in a fast-growing and dynamic business, with plenty of career opportunities in the UK and across Europe as well as a competitive rewards package.  We also have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at. Take a look at our reward page for more details. If you think you have everything we’re looking for and more, then we’d love to hear from you.  You’ll need to get your skates on though, as applications on the 29th of November.
Dolly Parton may have worked Nine to Five but you don’t have to.  We’re all about being healthy and happy here at innocent so we’re open to a chat about flexible working. No promises, but we reckon that if it’s good for you, then it’s good for us.
No agencies please.
