Jobs in London

Where you could work

RFi Group’s UK office is based in central London. During the COVID-19 pandemic staff had to work from home. The company found that this achieved high productivity, so they have moved to a hybrid model with staff working two days in the office, three days at home.

Are you a good fit for RFi Group?

To work in a finance job at RFi Group, it is important to have the core accountancy knowledge and skills in place through experience in a similar role. This would be one to two years of accounting experience in a corporate setting. Marketing jobs would also require at least a year or two’s experience in a marketing role, longer for a Marketing Manager’s position, along with management experience. Formal accountancy or marketing qualifications are not always a requirement for these positions but can be an advantage.

Working at RFi Group requires staff to be confident in their own abilities. They should be willing to step up to the plate when needed, to speak up when necessary and to face new challenges with courage. Having the motivation and drive to succeed on a personal level, as well as being passionate with regards to the future direction of the company, are attributes that will make anyone a great fit for this company. However, it is not just about employees having the right skill sets for a particular job role, it is also about being someone who will fit well with the culture and the ethos of the business, becoming part of the team and getting involved with work events.
