About the job:

innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we’re blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We’re proud to call ourselves Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company, but we’re still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

what you'll be doing

At innocent we’re going through an exciting period of growth and we need more hands on deck to help us achieve this. We’re looking for someone with bags of potential to join our UK&I Finance Team. It’s a perfect opportunity for someone to get loads of exposure to our finance and commercial teams and learn about our products and customers. It’s important that we can see you have clear aspirations to work as part of a fast-paced team and it’s a great opportunity to get a foot in the door if you think finance might be your thing.

Your main responsibilities will be:

  • Creating pricing and trade investment in the finance system

  • Ensuring accuracy of all pricing and promotions

  • Building a robust control environment

  • Allocating customer invoices on our finance system

  • Partnering with commercial team to resolve any financial errors in the forecast

  • Analysis and preparation of balance sheet reconciliation

  • Understand and improve core processes

you'll have

  • Great attention to detail with the ability to work independently to a high level of accuracy

  • Strong time management skills

  • Confident and clear communication with multiple stakeholders both inside and outside of finance

  • Experience using excel ( formulas and basic skills) and having work in a commercial finance role would be the cherry on top

you'll get

This is the perfect role for someone with a desire to start and build a career in finance. It's a great opportunity to understand how a top FMCG business works and you'll be given the tools and support to shape the role as you develop.

In return for everything you can bring, we can offer you an exciting, challenging role in a fast-growing and dynamic business. And, as well as the standard stuff you get for turning up for work, we offer free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at.

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 close soon.

Dolly Parton may have worked Nine to Five but you don't have to. 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. We're all about building a workplace for the future here at innocent, we believe in equal opportunities and we celebrate diversity. We’re an inclusive workplace, where everyone is welcome, everyone can be natural, and be the best versions of themselves. You’ll help us to keep doing business the right way – keeping innocent an inclusive and inspiring place to work, using our B Corp status to inspire wider change, and reinforcing our culture of staying little as we grow big.
