Find out more about us and the team.

The role

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to join our expanding team of Accountants and Bookkeepers. There are a couple of roles available that would suit someone who has either completed some studies in accountancy (particularly AAT) and is perhaps looking to progress their studies further or someone who has a significant amount of bookkeeping experience. Key duties will include:-

  • Bank reconciliations
  • Bookkeeping
  • Journals and assisting in the processing of Management Accounts
  • P&L review & variance analysis
  • Year-end preparation
  • Balance sheet reconciliations
  • Daily cash monitoring
  • Vat Returns
  • Ad hoc analysis

The successful applicant

As an accounts trainee or bookkeeping assistant you will have experience of all the above along with strong working knowledge of Excel and Xero, knowledge of the Iris Accountancy Suite would be beneficial but not crucial. Good IT skills will be an advantage with this role due to the majority of our clients being “cloud based”. You will also need good interpersonal and communication skills, and be comfortable talking to internal and external stakeholders. In any event, full training will be given on all aspects of this role.

As a firm, we take a relaxed attitude, we don’t believe in micro-managing our staff. Therefore, the successful applicant must be self-motivated and must be able to handle and prioritise their own workload.

What’s on offer?

The opportunity to join an expanding firm on a full-time basis in an accounting job. Full training and study support under an accredited training contract is also available should you wish. Salary is dependent on experience.
