Part Time Company Bookkeeper

Part Time Company Bookkeeper - Lostwithiel - £23-27,000 Pro Rata

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been exclusively assigned by a new client, a high profile, luxury hospitality resort based in Lostwithiel. The business has grown significantly in recent years and with multiple income streams, an experienced Company Bookkeeper is now required to head up the accounting function. This is a permanent, part time position that can be performed over a two-day working week, with working days as per the successful candidates’ preference. There is potential for increased hours as the business continues to gain momentum.

The resort is headed up by an exceptionally friendly, talented and highly motivated team and the role would be particularly well suited to an outgoing Bookkeeper who might take an interest in getting involved in other areas of the resorts operations as and when required!

We’re looking for a candidate with strong Bookkeeping experience gained with a privately-owned company. The business uses Xero software and experience in using the package, or an aptitude to migrate from another cloud-based product will be essential. Combined income is accrued from several legal entities, some of which will receive partial VAT exemption so a good knowledge in this area will also be a requirement.

Key responsibilities to include:

- Accounts preparation for month end reporting

- Preparing P&L reports

- Purchase and sales ledger

- Preparing and submitting VAT returns

- Bank reconciliation

- Credit Control

- Petty cash

- Payroll. The company is preparing to bring the payroll in house and the Company Bookkeeper will play a key role in overseeing this

- Liaising with Chartered Accountants

- Dealing with customer and supplier queries

We’re more focussed on relevant experience than qualification so welcome applications from those who are part/fully AAT or qualified by experience. The person-fit is almost as valuable as technical experience as the successful candidate will be working as part of a small and energetic team.
