A small County Durham based accountancy firm are looking to appoint a qualified Accountant as they move forward in the next chapter of their growth. Enjoying some new client engagements at the same time as forward planning future retirements they would like to welcome an Accountant into their team.
They provide both accountancy, payroll and taxation services and the practice are particularly focused on client relationships. As such they are keen to attract an individual either with the relevant experience or appetite to operate in a capacity that would see you regularly engaging with clients. They are looking for a “people person” who enjoys developing relationships and getting to know people.
Your role as an Accountant will see you working with a mixture of sole trader, partnerships and in the main Limited companies all under the audit threshold from an array of sectors. Whilst a large share of clients are working on cloud based systems, some are still paper based, requiring the preparation of accounts from incomplete records. You will pick up the accounts from trial balance, with some involvement in bookkeeping and VAT, but predominantly the completion of more complex accounts in addition to the review of those produced by more junior members of the team.
As an experienced qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA) or equivalent you will be asked to support the managers role and deputise when they are out of the office. We do require an individual with a background of experience from the profession.
For those that would in time like to progress their career development there is an open opportunity to work alongside the Partners supporting on their client portfolio and enhancing your technical knowledge. With succession planning in mind, this position for the right individual could present a future partnership opportunity, but does in no way discount those that are comfortable at their existing level.
The firm are based close to the A1M and are easily accessed by car or public transport with their own free parking. They like to have fun as a team and create an enjoyable place to spend your working week.
