Get a Job!

Through this blog and particularly my Advice page and posts about being unemployed in London, I’ve got ‘in’ with some recruiters, who want my help finding other likeminded, hardworking Kiwis.

They love us here, and want to help-me-help-you by sending awesome, talented, bright, bubbly people their way. Ozzies are welcome too – we don’t discriminate here. Much.

If you are interested in any of the below opportunities, please email me at Please include:

  • Your up to date CV
  • Your availability
  • Your Visa expiry if applicable
  • What you are looking for (e.g. type of role, min pay, location, and/or specific role from this page you would like to be forwarded on for)

I’ll then forward on to the appropriate person.

Good work team!

Current Roles:

Part-qualified management accountant
For a client based in Central London within their International Affairs department.  This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a close knit Finance team and to gain exposure to international accounting standards and procedures through dealing with their overseas partners.  You will be responsible for payroll analysis, reconciliations, assisting with the budgeting process and have involvement in specific accounting projects.  This assignment will be for at least 4 months, with potential for longer term opportunities for the right candidate. £16ph.

Accounts Payable
My finance recruitment contact is currently looking for Accounts Payable staff. He often has last minute temporary work at lower rates (e.g. £7/hr) for short term, get there tomorrow roles, which can be great to help out while you’re job hunting. But there are also ongoing temp roles at higher rates.

PPI Roles
A variety of roles in the PPI complaints field, with different requirements for each project (I know what they are so can tell you if you’ll meet them). Get in contact if you have:

  • Right to work in UK until at very least Dec 2013, but for London roles at least 18 months.
  • AND: Experience in PPI (anything from taking complaints to full QA process)
  • OR: A 2:2 or higher in a degree (from a UK Uni only unfortch!) related to finance in any way (graduated within a few years)
  • OR: A 2:1 or higher  (from a UK Uni only unfortch!) in a non-finance degree with strong research and analytical aspects, e.g. History, English, Psychology (graduated within a few years).
  • AND: Decent grammar and numerical skills (you can use a calculator and understand the difference between their/there/they’re)

You don’t need to know about PPI if you go for a grad role, so don’t be put off if you’ve never heard of it. As always, Wiki will help 🙂
