Job Description

The Ashdown Group has been engaged by a successful accountancy practice to assist them in their search for a talented Senior Accountant.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable management experience in Practice. Alongside leading a team of Accountants you will be responsible for managing a small portfolio of clients so you must have a background in practice. You will ideally be ACCA, ACA or ATT Qualified however they will consider applicants who are qualified by experience.

In this role you will be responsible for ensuring your team provides an efficient service to clients in line with company standards. You will be comfortable setting, following and enforcing adherence to policies and procedures as well as performance management through the analysis of KPIs.

Additionally you will be responsible for preparing year-end accounts for your client portfolio including completing Corporation and Self-Assessment tax returns. Experience with Iris or Digita software would be highly desirable and you must demonstrate intermediate to advanced Excel skills.

The team is established and knowledgeable, but the less experienced members of staff will depend on your guidance and advice when they are communicating with their client portfolio, so a nurturing and guiding hand is required.

This is an urgent requirement.
