Financial Accountant

Summary

Job Title: Financial Accountant

Location: Liverpool

Salary: Dependent on experience

Employment: Full Time

Department: Finance & HR

At Ph.Creative we have a vision that one day everyone will love their job. We want to help everyone find their perfect job in a perfectly matched team.

We’re a globally-recognised leading employer branding agency. We’re changing how businesses prioritise the value of who they are as an employer, and we’re committed to helping them discover the true value they can offer to the people who join them.

If you were to sit with the team at Ph, whether in Liverpool, London, New York, Los Angeles, Austin or San Diego, you would see people who care about the work and care about each other. There’s a relaxed vibe. They have a confidence in their work and the skill, drive, and grit to get things done.

It’s so nice to work amongst smart, creative people who each have the autonomy to make a judgement call, to fix something that’s not working or to attempt something that’s not been done before. It’s not for everyone, but for people who love energetic collaboration, bouncing around ideas, operating outside of traditional thinking and challenging conventions, Ph. can be a lot of fun.

“It’s a very exciting time at Ph, we’re expanding rapidly and working with some brilliant clients.”
