Who we are

We are the disruptors of the beauty industry. Our aim is simple: provide beauty and health lovers the highest quality health and beauty products, made by the world's best laboratories. As the first luxury beauty buyers' club, our products are sold directly to our members without the prohibitive industry mark-ups.

Technology powers everything that we do, and contributes to making our business model unique. We are building a unique shopping experience across every digital channel to deliver a world class service for our growing numbers of customers.

We are changing the traditional game by setting new rules. We are looking for people that are not afraid to dare, and are passionate about change, as much as we are. At Beauty Pie, we are not about exclusivity or privilege; we are about empowerment, self-worth, and teaching women that they deserve 'a bigger piece of it', even if all starts with a lipstick.

The role

We are on the lookout for a numerical whizz to support all things finance in our growing business. This is a great opportunity for the right individual to make a mark in a small but expanding team at a really exciting time for us. As a team, we focus on working to ensure our financials and systems are robust, consistently implementing new processes to improve and enhance our understanding and analyse our results. The team size means you will be able to gain a wide understanding of the finance function and have a real impact on how it develops.
