Competitive Full-time or 30 hours plus BGC-01748-AC Permanent
For those that enjoy working in a small firm this could be just perfect. We are working with a sole practitioner just north of Newcastle who is seeking to appoint an Accounts Assistant with experience of working in an accountancy practice.
With a growing portfolio of small businesses both limited and sole traders, the demand for accounting is increasing and they are looking for someone to support with Xero led accounting.
With the opportunity to progress and learn over time my client is open to hearing from those with accountancy practice skills in bookkeeping, management accounts and or year end accounts preparation. All three skill sets would enable you to enjoy a varied role from the outset whilst others can work towards this. It is important you are familiar with a practice environment and can cope with the pressure of working with multiple clients at one time.
Whilst exposure to Xero is not essential it really would help if you have previous experience or are competent working with cloud based accounting software.
Given the size of the firm we are looking for confident individuals who can communicate well with clients, answering their initial queries and are happy to work independently on their own as there will be times across the week when you are in the office on your own.
Office hours are 9-5 but slight adjustments can be accommodated for family commitments.
Those working towards AAT or ACCA/ACA exams will be supported.
Unfortunately we cannot consider any applications without prior experience in practice.
