Financial Accountant - EMEA

Dr. Martens is a globally recognisable and culturally influential British brand, with over 60 years of rich heritage. As brand custodians, we are lucky to work for a dynamic, thriving, and ethical business, with people from diverse backgrounds, who bring their true selves to work, and where anyone can grow their career.

We are guided by three core values that are at the heart of everything we do: be yourself, act courageously, and show you care. They make us who we are and inspire us to push boundaries, embrace our individuality, and stand up for what's right.


Working in a fast-paced team for the Senior Financial Accountant - EMEA, the Financial Accountant will be expected to input, analyse and maintain various sub-ledgers and assist with the general ledger for all EMEA entities – Airwair International Limited (UK) and the subsidiaries in Continental Europe.

As our Financial Accountant you will be responsible for:

  • Conduct a comprehensive review of the ownership status of fixed and intangible assets within Airwair International Limited (UK) and its subsidiary entities across Continental Europe. This involves scrutinizing the accounting treatment of all assets to ensure compliance with relevant accounting standards. Additionally, any discrepancies or deviations from standard practices are identified and addressed through a rigorous challenge process.
  • Engage in close collaboration with the finance and IT teams based in Camden to conduct thorough reviews of projects. This collaboration extends throughout the various stages of a project's lifecycle, from initial cost estimation to post-implementation assessments. By working closely with these teams, the aim is to ensure that project costs are accurately captured and reflected in financial records, thereby enhancing transparency and accountability. This also involves meeting strict deadlines associated with project milestones and financial reporting requirements.
  • Take the lead on the annual asset verification project, which involves coordinating efforts with stakeholders across the organization. Through this project, the goal is to verify the accuracy of asset registers and ensure that they reflect the current status of assets. This process typically involves conducting physical inspections, reconciling records, and resolving any discrepancies that may arise within specified timelines to meet reporting deadlines.
  • Assume responsibility for maintaining the integrity of the EMEA ledgers in accordance with both group and local statutory accounting requirements. This entails recording financial transactions accurately, ensuring compliance with relevant regulations, and upholding the highest standards of financial reporting. This includes meeting strict monthly and year-end closing deadlines to facilitate timely reporting and decision-making.
  • Act as a champion for continuous improvement initiatives within the EMEA finance function. This involves promoting a culture of excellence and best practices, proactively identifying areas for improvement, and making recommendations for enhancing efficiency and effectiveness. Additionally, any issues or risks that are identified are promptly flagged to the Financial Accountant-EMEA, along with any opportunities for improvement that may benefit the organization as a whole.


  • Put simply, for this role the key things we’re looking for are:
  • Candidates should have either a part-qualified accountant status or experience in a comparable role within a finance department.
  • Preferably experienced with Microsoft Dynamics (D365), retail operations, multi-currency, multi-site environments, and proficiency in foreign languages.
