Accounts Assistant

Are you looking to start your career in accountancy, with a firm that will support you all the way to an accounting qualification?

Do you have a keen desire to learn and to get involved?

We have a fantastic opportunity for you, and you don’t need any previous experience, we will provide full training. We’re a really busy practice looking after a range of clients and the work is varied so there is plenty of opportunities to get involved in different things. When you join us, we will start you off in general accounting duties and you will progress from there. There is no limit as to where you can go with us – all the way to becoming a Chartered Accountant yourself if you want to.

We will fully support you, so that your opportunities to learn and your personal development are assured. As your training progresses, your responsibilities will increase and the work becomes more complex. Ultimately it is down to you and there is nothing to stop you working towards becoming a Chartered or Certified Accountant if that is the direction you wish to go. We have a great culture here with a positive working environment and we want our employees to become more experienced and improve their skills.

We are looking for someone who is a team player and not afraid to get involved with different office duties. You could be handling several things at once so good multitasking skills are important as are the abilities to work in an organised way and be able to prioritise your daily tasks. There’s going to be a lot of contact with clients and authorities such as Companies House and HMRC, so we are looking to hire someone who is confident and pragmatic in their approach.

We look after the accounting needs of companies and individuals so our work is comprehensive and can be demanding including company formations, money laundering checks, payroll, corporate and personal tax, VAT, bank reconciliations and all sorts of general office duties.
