Bookkeeper - Part-time 12 hours/wk

Emily Burningham is a small but growing design company working with a range of textiles, home accessories, greeting cards and wrapping paper amongst other products. Our design studio is based in Hampstead, North London.

We are looking for someone to fulfil the bookkeeping role and to help manage the day to day administration of the company. We are looking for a highly organised individual who would be responsible for:

  • Day to day bookkeeping
  • Order processing and liaising with our warehouse
  • Bank reconciliation - processing payments from a number of channels
  • Preparation of management accounts
  • VAT returns
  • Petty cash
  • Purchase and sales ledger management
  • Stock management 
  • Running and creating reports to enable sales analysis
  • Debtor chasing
  • Assistance with various administration tasks
  • Answering phone calls, replying to e-mails, and communicating directly with customers
  • Maintaining our database

You will need to have a high level of computer skills. You will be working daily with Excel and Xero so experience with these programmes or similar online accounts packages is essential. 

This role requires a highly organised, reliable and efficient individual with a strong head for figures, who is prepared to work on a variety of different tasks. Trouble shooting, problem solving and resourcefulness would be key. Experience working with other small businesses would be preferred. 

You will be working within a small friendly team where a happy, upbeat personality and flexible approach is of paramount importance, alongside a genuine interest in what we do and enthusiasm for expanding the business.

This role is the central pivot from which the business administration radiates. 

12 hours a week, ideally a Monday and Wednesday with a potential for the hours to increase as the business grows.
