About you as their new Assistant Accountant
As well as being AAT qualified, you will be someone who embraces change, which will naturally come as the business grows and the finance team responsibilities increase along with the company journey.
Being able to demonstrate working knowledge of the practices of accounting, across the ledgers is essential and ideally some basic management accounting experience is required.
You will be someone who has a strong head for systems and finding their way around them quickly. The company currently use Sage 50 Accounts and MS Share Point.

You should be someone who is highly organised and experienced in managing their own workload with minimum supervision, and capable of meeting deadlines.
If you thrive on being part of and 100 percent collaborating as a team, love learning and would like more exposure to management accounting as part of your ledger role, this position of Assistant Accountant is the one for you.
You will be rewarded with a salary of up to £33,000 p/a, a full office based role on a day to day basis which the current team members have decided together that they love doing and being together (but with flexibility when you really need to be working from home for emergencies).
There is company car parking on site, so you won’t incur any further costs. Their location is easy to get to as well.
A position that will offer variety and no two days will be the same and challenges that will increase your learning and exposure in accounting, while being able to bring and make suggestions to improve processes and the ways things are done, this is the job for you.
