Your new firm
A small and friendly firm of Chartered Accountants based north of Bury in Lancashire are looking to recruit a senior accountant to join their team on a permanent basis working either 4 or 5 days a week.

What you'll need to succeed

You must be comfortable in taking accounts through to finalisation and be comfortable liaising with clients over phone and email. The firm use Iris software so any prior experience of this would be beneficial.

What you'll get in return
