[Expired] - Finance Assistant

Runway East
Coworking Space:
Runway East
London, UK Lower Ground,, 10 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1AF, United Kingdom

Elevator Pitch;

At Runway East, we're a group of startup enthusiasts on a mission to provide every founder and their team with the best place to grow their startup. Our ever-expanding community of 2,000 members work faster, smarter and happier from five spaces in London and Bristol. Along the way they’ve collectively raised over £580m in funding, and multiple eyebrows. With the likes of Receipt Bank, Chaser and Expend having all called us home, you'll be in good company!

We’re looking for an organised, detail-focussed, data-savvy Finance Assistant who can help keep the backbone of our operations running like beautiful clockwork.

As our Finance Assistant, you’ll report directly to our Financial Controller. You’ll be keeping track of our transactions, processing invoices, reconciling bank accounts, owning the accounts payable and receivable functions, as well as supporting our Financial Controller in producing financial reports; generally attacking any data-based task that gets thrown your way. You’ll work in a collaborative way with our team to ensure knowledge is shared and best practice is implemented as part of a continuous cycle of improving the way we work.

The Nitty Gritty

The core responsibilities will include;

  • Processing new membership agreements onto a financial system
  • Processing invoices
  • Processing expense claims
  • Supplier set up and maintenance
  • Regular bank reconciliations
  • Issuing payment runs
  • Supporting with the preparation of financial reports
  • Plus, any other ad-hoc administrative and finance tasks


Who You Are

The Non-Negotiables

  • Efficiency-obsessive

We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our practices and systems, and we want someone who can join us on this mission. You’ll be curious, questioning, be on the look-out for ways to make things better, with proveable experience in diligent, professional and detailed working practice.

  • Numbers-savvy

You’ll have amazing attention to detail, with an ability to spot a numerical error a mile off - as well as an unhealthy love of MS Office (particularly Excel, of course).


We love to work with proactive thinkers, people who love to spot solutions before anyone else, someone who is a creative problem solver. Ideally fun-loving, passionate and quick to say YES.

Fired up by what you’ve read so far? Hit apply, we want to meet you.

£18,000 to £22,000 plus AAT study support

Besides working with the greatest people in the world? Well…
