Assistant Accountant permanent opportunities for finance professionals interested in reconciliations.

Your new company
Hays are pleased to be working with a leading financial services company based here in Edinburgh City Centre to support in their recruitment for an Assistant Accountant to work within one of their smaller finance operations on a permanent basis. Due to a change in team structure, the requirement for an additional full time member of staff with experience in sales ledger and reconciliations has become available.

Your new role
In your new role, you will be a key member of the wider team to support in the daily production and management of sales ledger invoices and reconciliations that directly impact the larger business. You will be preparing and recording sales invoices onto the system, calculating accruals, managing debtor accounts, posting cash receipts and preparing monthly/quarterly reconciliations.

What you'll need to succeed
To succeed, a strong foundation in sales ledger and reconciliations would be of considerable advantage. You will be working as part of a wider team that feeds into the bigger finance operations so a willingness to work as part of a team but also succeed in tasks independently will be required. If you have previous experience working with a financial services company, this will also be highly advantageous.

What you'll get in return
In return, you will be joining a company that has continued to positively grow over the last few years despite external factors impacting the business so this is going to be an exciting opportunity for someone who would like to further their career in the financial services industry. You will be offered a competitive salary of up to £36,000 depending on your experience and additional company benefits that can be discussed in further detail.
