Job Description

Are you an ACA qualified Business Services Senior / Outsourcing Senior (either recently qualified or with one or two exams left to complete) looking to upgrade to a Top 80 firm with around 70 staff based in a prestigious location in Central London? Are you keen to build on and improve your management accounts and outsourcing skills? Are you keen to work in a large and well established outsourcing team, manage your own portfolio of clients, work with interesting clients (particularly Media, hospitality, restaurant and technology clients), manage staff, and help be responsible for the overall performance of a growing team with around 15 staff? Are you also looking to work for a firm where you can gain exposure to larger clients and better quality work, but also have a good work life balance? Based in the busy Business Services and Outsourcing department, your role will be varied, and will include the preparation of monthly and quarterly management accounts, reviewing work carried out by other members of staff (mainly bookkeeping assignments), client training on cloud software packages such as Xero, VAT returns as well as ad hoc projects such as cash flows, budgeting and forecasting as well as Vat and PAYE inspections and acting as an outsourced finance function for clients. You will be responsible for managing some staff within the department and ensuring their development. You will also be responsible for ensuring all clients are serviced to a very high standard, as well as managing workflow.

To be considered for this new role it is likely you will be a recently qualified ACA although candidates with one to two exams left will still be considered. You must be operating as a Senior and have experience of the above duties, particularly the preparation of management accounts. Ideally you will have experience of Xero or cloud based software, although training can be provided. Experience of some large clients including groups and overseas companies would be an advantage but not essential. You will now be looking to upgrade to a busy and rapidly growing Outsourcing and Business Services department, and continue to learn new skills and work with impressive clients to improve your technical knowledge. You must also have the drive and determination to help the Partners continue to grow this popular department.

This growing Top 80 accountancy firm has a great reputation for being a friendly and supportive place to work and providing their staff with challenging and varied roles. Their outsourcing team has one of the best reputations in London and has many high profile clients. You will work in a friendly and growing team, and you can expect to work on an interesting array of clients from a wide range of industries. The department is growing at a rapid rate due to many new business wins from larger accountancy firms. Overall this is a unique opportunity for an Outsourcing Senior from a practice background to join a leading player in the business services and outsourcing sector and carry out a high profile and interesting position with future progression on offer.
