Job Description

A great opportunity to become part of an accountancy team that go the extra mile for their clients.

An opportunity has arisen for an accountant to join a highly successful and forward thinking accountancy practice. Our client is looking for someone who is able to hit the ground running and join their team working with a large variety of mainly small and medium sized local businesses. The role will involve some bookkeeping duties, VAT returns, accounts preparation and general management accounting, and proficient IT skills (including Excel to at least an intermediate standard) will be required. Communication is a key characteristic that will be vital as the company very much works in partnership with its clients, and the right candidate will have the adaptability to work with a range of clients whose accountancy knowledge will go from very basic to reasonably professional.

The candidate could be either qualified, part qualified or qualified by experience, with a good working knowledge and understanding of VAT. The role will predominantly involve management accounting, but will also include bookkeeping and other tasks, and the successful candidate will have an attitude where they are happy to "muck in" and get involved with whatever tasks are required. Experience of being client facing would be beneficial as this role involves a lot of working directly with clients. A factor that sets our client apart from its competitors is that they recognise accountancy is changing and they are therefore changing with it to becoming more of a trusted advisor to a business rather than an accountant that visits once a quarter, and therefore a friendly and helpful attitude is essential.

This role would suit someone who wants to build on their accountancy skillset gained to date, is empathetic and is looking to join a company who invests in its employees and rewards hard work
