Consultant (Bookkeeping and FinOps)

Job description

People of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply and specifically women, people of colour and First Nations People.

You should keep reading if you:

  • Are based in Melbourne, Sydney or Byron Bay

  • Have at least 2-3 years experience working across bookkeeping and accounting support for small and medium businesses (while 2-3 years experience is the minimum requirement for this role, we strongly encourage candidates with 3+ years experience to apply)

  • Have a strong interest in working in the startup world

  • Are eligible to work in Australia

  • Have great attention to detail and organisational skills

  • Xero is your jam and you love the idea of rethinking how bookkeeping services can be delivered to startups, early-stage ventures, scaleups and the next generation of investment funds.

  • Are excited by the prospect of working at a fast pace across multiple dynamic and fast growing startups

  • Have the desire to work as part of a highly collaborative team (this is NOT your standard accounting firm structure!)

  • Crave connection with your teammates and are willing to foster that connection through team building, personal and professional development


It would be an added bonus if you have any of the following in your toolkit:

  • You’re a registered BAS agent (or ability to become one pretty quickly)

  • Experience managing multiple clients simultaneously

  • Have started your own business or have experience working in a startup

  • You’re a payroll expert with deep knowledge in the area

  • You have experience collaborating with tax accountants to deliver outcomes for clients

Your role at LUNA:

  • Service Delivery – providing end to end accounting support to the most exciting startups and venture capital funds in Australia, with a focus on bookkeeping services. This includes:

    • Maintaining client Xero files;

    • Providing operational financial support to clients (think preparing ABAs, assisting with team onboarding, helping with grant applications and solving day to day accounting problems);

    • Researching and implementing new tech for our clients;

    • Helping to build LUNA’s internal systems and processes that enable us to deliver an incredible customer experience.

  • BD – we don’t see rain making as something that is just for “Partners” — it’s a core skill for any entrepreneur and that’s exactly how we see all of our team: entrepreneurial in spirit and attitude. This might mean having introductory meetings with potential new clients, attending and representing LUNA at startup events.


  • Impact — we want you to have an impact beyond our accounting services. This means presenting to accelerator programs and founders, writing up helpful articles and blog posts and using tech to build out new accounting products.
