Job Description

Are you an experienced Accounts Senior or Accounts Supervisor looking to join an independent firm in a role which will mainly involve reviewing work? Are you looking for a permanent, full time role with an August start date? Are you either ACA qualified or qualified by experience, with a strong background in reviewing statutory accounts preparation work and tax returns? Are you keen to work in a small firm environment (around 8 staff) with high levels of responsibility? Reporting directly to the Partner, your role will include reviewing all the statutory accounts work and corporation tax returns which are outsourced abroad. You will liaise directly with the overseas company and make any necessary amendments and communicate directly with the clients and analyse and interpret their annual accounts. The firm mainly deals with SME / OMB clients, with turnovers generally to £500k although some are around £2m+. Client sectors are varied and include property, construction, media, advertising and retail.

To be considered for this newly created role you must be an experienced Accounts Senior or Accounts Supervisor, who is either ACA qualified or qualified by experience. You must have experience working in a small or medium sized accountancy firm, and have strong experience reviewing work, specifically statutory accounts and tax returns. Experience reviewing work outsourced abroad would be an advantage but not essential. You must have experience of the above duties and you must have experience of a wide range of software packages. You must be a team player and be able to work to tight deadlines. Good communication skills are also very important as you will be liaising directly with clients to discuss their annual accounts and overall performance. You must also have experience of working in a small firm environment.

This growing accountancy firm based in the Southern part of Zone 1 Central London with around 8 staff 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 SME / OMB London based clients. The firm is growing at a rapid rate due to many new business wins from larger accountancy firms. They are increasing the amount of work that is outsourced abroad, and so this newly created role is vital to ensure the work completed is of a high standard before being sent to their clients. Overall this is a unique opportunity for a small firm Accounts Senior or Accounts Supervisor who has a strong background of reviewing work, to join an entrepreneurial and forward thinking practice and work in an interesting role where you can continue with your general practice career.
