The client is flexible as to whether you become a permanent employee on the payroll, or whether you invoice for your services each month.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience working in an accountancy practice and managing a portfolio of clients, ideally focused on SME's, charities and financial businesses. To be suitable, you will be experienced in managing client accounts; from completing year-end accounts, to audits, corporation tax, tax planning, personal tax and VAT returns. Some payroll experience would also be useful.

An AAT/ACCA/ACA or CIMA Qualification would be preferential, however they will consider applications from candidates who are part qualified, or qualified by experience. What is essential that you have experience gained in practice.

You will be responsible for delivering high quality accountancy and tax advice to a wide range of existing clients so you must demonstrate outstanding communication and customer service skills. Additionally you will be highly organised, with a strong attention to detail.

You should also demonstrate good IT skills, including the Microsoft Office suite. In particular you need good Excel, experience with Sage and IRIS would be highly advantageous, as this is the main software used.

This is an initial 6 month contract, but will become a permanent one for the right person . Hourly rate is circa £25p/h and they are looking for someone to start within the next month.
