Job Description

Are you an ACA fully qualified Accounts Senior looking to carry out a role which is mainly accounts based (70%) with an element of corporation tax (30%) but no audit work? Are you looking to upgrade to a medium size firm (around 50 staff) based in a prime location in the City where you will be given every opportunity to learn new skills, develop and progress to a higher level in the short term? Are you keen to now carry out a role combining your favourite areas of accountancy? Based in a general practice role, you will be responsible for preparing statutory accounts for a wide range of clients, as well as corporation tax computations. You will also have the opportunity to prepare management accounts for some clients. You will deal with client queries, technical research, HMRC queries and also be responsible for supervising juniors and reviewing their work. You will also be responsible for carrying out a number of ad hoc projects and assignments on behalf of clients (including valuation, due diligence etc). Your role will be varied, challenging and hugely enjoyable with great progression prospects on offer. In this new role, you will gain exposure to a wide range of UK and international clients, including groups, from sectors including media and entertainment, property, legal, technology, retail and other interesting sectors. The firm would also consider someone with a few years post qualification experience (and therefore pay a higher salary). Experience of Caseware would be an advantage but training will be provided if necessary.

To be considered for this new role you must have at least three years experience, probably in a small or medium size accountancy firm, and be fully ACA qualified (either newly qualified or with a few years post qualification experience). First time passes is desirable but one or two second attempts are acceptable. You must have experience of preparing statutory accounts, corporation tax returns, supervising juniors and ideally managing clients. Experience of a wide range of software packages, including Caseware would be an advantage. A strong interest in a role mixed between accounts preparations and tax returns is essential. You must be well presented, be a team player, and be looking to progress at a rapid pace.

This growing accountancy firm has a great reputation for being a friendly and supportive place to work and providing their staff with challenging and varied roles. You will work in a friendly and growing team, and you can expect to work on an interesting array of high profile and growing London based clients as well as international clients. The firm is growing at a rapid rate due to many new business wins from larger accountancy firms. This is a unique opportunity for an ACA qualified Accounts Senior (who doesn’t want to carry out any audit in their next role) to join an entrepreneurial and forward thinking practice and play a role of great importance to the continued growth of the firm. It is also a great opportunity to progress to Manager level in a short space of time.
