Highly organised; able to juggle 101 things; methodical; an outgoing personality; a great sense of humour; happy to muck in…. are we describing you? Then you’re hired!

Vita Coco is a fun-loving, 100% natural coconut water and is the number one selling coconut water in the UK and the US. Beyond its impressive natural hydration and functional benefits, Vita Coco has built a real following in popular culture and is drunk by celebrities, professional athletes, top-selling musicians, and many more.

With our Head Office in New York, the UK business is responsible for developing the European market across the major channels including grocery, impulse, wholesale and on-trade.  We’re a young, dynamic business that is experiencing strong sales growth, and we all share a common vision and goal to drive Vita Coco even bigger across Europe, whilst having some fun!

We want to take on an enthusiastic team player with the ambition to gain a professional accountancy qualification over 3 years and to build a career in finance. We will be implementing SAP Business All-In-One in early 2014 with a strong Finance component, so a candidate with experience in the system would have an advantage.


What will the role involve?

Reporting to the Head of Finance and working collaboratively with four other members of the Finance team. Over the 3 years of your qualification you will get a broad range of experience within the Finance Dept including:

  • Sales and purchase ledger management
  • Management and statutory reporting (daily, weekly, monthly and annual)
  • Supply chain finance (incl. COGs, freight and logistics)
  • Treasury management


For the first year, the main focus will be on finding your feet in Finance and helping implement the SAP system.

  • Sales and Purchase Ledger support
  • Bank reconciliation
  • Petty cash and cash from events


The role will also include:

  • Developing and maintaining finance systems and processes
  • IT support, with 30% of your time supporting the business on IT troubleshooting – incl. laptops, phones and printers. This will reduce to 10% from June ‘14.
  • Involvement in ad hoc projects and tasks to support our growing business as requested

What do you need to be able to offer?  

  • The energy and self- motivation to work within a small, rapidly growing business that is going places
  • An eye for detail, top numeracy skills and proficient in Excel
  • Finance/business related degree or experience is preferred
  • Experience using the SAP software system (ideally a year and experience maintaining master data)
  • Provide an open minded approach to your role, always looking at ways to improve how things are done
  • A flexible, can do, friendly attitude with the willingness to learn 
  • A passion to work in the food and beverage industry and a love of coconut water!

But most importantly you will demonstrate how you can see an opportunity to develop your career with us at Vita Coco and contribute to the success of our company as we grow, showing passion for your role.

What do we offer?

  • The opportunity to join the UK’s fastest growing non-alcoholic beverage company that is going places
  • A chance to build a credible, long term career with Vita Coco
  • An attractive salary package based on experience
  • Study support for your qualification of choice (ACA/ACCA/CIMA/AAT)
  • An unlimited supply of Vita Coco!
