Our client is a successful and established Firm of Accountants in the local area. Due to continued expansion, our client is looking to appoint an additional member of their team to undertake client bookkeeping work.
Your workload will be really varied, and will involve a wide range of bookkeeping duties for a variety of different companies. Typically you could be running a purchase ledger for one client, running supplier payments and making ledger reconciliations for another; you may undertake banking and bank reconciliation work, prepare and submit VAT returns for clients, prepare month end reconciliations, and possibly be involved in some payroll work (previous payroll experience not essential, as training can be given).
Software used will be varied and will include Sage, Xero and Quickbooks.
The role can be offered on either a full or a part-time basis, with the minimum hours probably being around 20/21 per week. If part-time, the hours can be split over 3 longer days or 4 or 5 shorter days, and our client can accommodate school hours.
Whilst previous experience of working in a Firm of Accountants will give you an advantage, this is by no means essential, and we encourage good strong double-entry bookkeepers to apply, as this experience is equally attractive to our client.
