We are a British metaverse technology company that builds interconnected, immersive virtual worlds. Our technology, expertise, creativity and services help partners – including entertainment companies, game creators and public institutions – realise their ambitions in the metaverse.

  • Ensuring the purchase ledger is closed off in line with the month-end timetable deadlines
  • Monthly review of aged creditors and ensuring debit and aged credit balances are followed up and cleared

  • Assisting the Senior Finance Operations Manager in the implementation of streamlined financial processes across the group, including the rollout of a PO system
  • Ensuring timely delivery of ad hoc and urgent requests

Why you're made for this

This role is available as remote, hybrid or in-office. We have a great office space in Spitalfields in London but are equally happy if you'd prefer to work from home, some or all of the time. We are 'Flexa' certified, meaning our entire employee experience is anchored around flexibility and autonomy.
While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply.
