Are you an Accounts Senior or Accounts & Audit Senior, either newly qualified or qualified with some PQE, looking to upgrade to a modern and entrepreneurial medium size West End accountancy practice based in an easily accessible location? Are you looking to work for a boutique firm which is one of the main firms in London that works with Media, Entertainment, creative and particularly Film & TV clients? Are you looking for a role which is mainly statutory accounts, corporation tax and advisory based, but will also include a small amount of audit (20 – 30% of the role will be audit based)? If so, this growing niche accountancy practice firm based in a prime location in Zone 1 Central London is looking to recruit an ACA or ACCA qualified Accounts Senior or Accounts & Audit Senior due to impressive growth over the last few years and winning new clients from larger firms. Your role will be varied and will include: reporting directly to Partner level, liaising directly with all clients, preparing statutory accounts from start to finish for Ltd companies (as well as preparing accounts for individuals), corporation tax returns, some management accounts and offering clients advise how to improve their business. You will also get the chance to work on other areas of accountancy such as leading audits from planning to completion, VAT returns and various reports, analysis and business management assignments so your role will be varied. Your role will be varied and challenging, and training will be provided where necessary. Your role will be 70-80% accounts and tax based with 20 – 30% spent on audit assignments. You will work in a newly created role that will provide you with many growth opportunities in the future including the chance to be promoted to Manager level in a short space of time.
