Job Details

Are you looking to work in an environment where you can thrive?
One which may include some training and support, and crucially, will allow you to continue to grow and develop your career.
What's in it for you?

  • A salary of up to £40,000
  • 25 days holiday rising by one per year, up to a maximum of 30 plus bank holidays
  • The potential of a % of new fees introduced/won paid as a bonus
  • Flexible working hours and hybrid working
  • Time back in lieu

You'll be right for us if you're -

  • Either "qualified by experience", part-qualified or qualified accountant - it's your attitude and keenness that's important to us
  • Ambitious and you'd like, in time to progress your career and maybe one day even become a partner.
  • Experienced working within an accountancy practice, ideally having worked on both audits and accounts.

You will have responsibility for your own portfolio of clients.
Working with the sole Partner, you'll bring your problem-solving and technical skills along with your ambition to service and grow the business.
Sitting within the central Darlington office, you'll benefit from free on-street parking and if it's better for you to take the train or the bus, they're just a short walk away.
You'll be praised and rewarded for your efforts, just like the time the team was previously given a day off and taken first-class to London where they were treated to a nice meal, a show, and an overnight stay - simply to say well done and thank you.
If you'd like to discuss this super opportunity in more detail, please contact Catherine Duke at Hays Darlington on 01325 352911 for an informative, confidential discussion.
