Job Description

The Ashdown group has been engaged by a successful accountancy practice in their search for an internal Accountant to join them for a 2 to 3 month contract. 

The successful candidate will have extensive experience producing consolidated monthly management accounts and prior experience in an accountancy practice is essential. You will ideally be ACCA, ACA or CIMA Qualified however they might consider applications from experienced Accountants who are Part-Qualified. 

Due to the recent merger of three practices, there is a significant amount of consolidation work to do. The main focus will be helping with the backlog of analysis, the production of monthly management accounts within strict timeframes for financial reporting to the company's key stakeholders. You will also be assisting in the preparation of the annual budget and quarterly forecast schedules as well as providing analysis of variances against budget and forecast. 

To be suitable you will have experience in the following; completing monthly payroll, purchase ledger, balance sheet reconciliations, monthly KPIs, debt collection, pensions, pre-payments and accruals. Additionally you will be responsible for providing supporting information for the year-end audit and corporation tax returns.

You must be able to demonstrate that you have strong Excel skills e.g. VLookups and pivot tables and have good knowledge of Sage 50 and Sage 200. This is an URGENT requirement and the client is looking for somebody who is immediately available or has a very short notice period.
