Job Description

Are you a fully ACA qualified Accounts Senior from an independent practice firm looking to upgrade to a very good quality, medium sized City based accountancy firm and carry out a varied role consisting of accounts preparation work, tax returns and various advisory based projects?  Are you looking for a role with a January or February 2021 start date? Are you keen to work in a very good quality firm with excellent progression to manager grade on offer? Your role will be mainly statutory accounts based (70%) with some exposure to management accounts as well as corporation tax returns and about 10% of your role being spent on advisory based projects. Based in a general practice role in a firm with around 50 staff, 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 business valuations, cashflows, budgets, forecasts, due diligence etc). Your role will be varied, challenging and hugely enjoyable with great progression prospects to manager grade 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 look at a recently qualified ACA, or someone with some post qualification experience. This firm has had great success with people who have trained around the UK and want to relocate to London. 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 with between 3 and 15 partners, and be fully ACA qualified (either newly qualified or with a few years post qualification experience). First time passes are highly desirable. You must have experience of preparing statutory accounts, corporation tax returns, supervising juniors and ideally managing clients. Experience of audit is not essential and training can be provided if you wish to carry out audit work. 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. The firm welcomes applications from candidates looking to relocate to London from another UK based practice firm.

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 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.
