Job Description

Elsby & Co has an opportunity for a motivated and talented individual who is looking to further their professional career as a Semi-Senior Accountant.

As a Semi-Senior we would expect you to be moving away from task-based work to more on-going client management throughout the year. The role primarily involves supporting the Client Manager and Senior Accountant with looking after the day to day compliance aspects for a client. The role will largely involve dealing with the accounting and tax requirements for SME’s and you will be assisting in the training of more junior accounts staff, including an appraisal of their work.

We appreciate that not everyone will have accounts and tax experience and therefore we will provide training so that you can develop in new areas and become a more “rounded” accountant.

Elsby & Co are keen to make the most of modern technology and this is reflected in the internal working practices and how the firm works with clients.

The role will provide you with an opportunity for direct client contact, therefore, strong technical and communication skills are essential.

There is no limit to career progression and ultimately could lead to Partner level for the right candidate.


  • Previous experience as a Semi-Senior Accountant within a practice, ideally 3 - 5 years
  • AAT qualified and either ACCA/ACA studier
  • An openness to using modern technology, both for internal efficiencies but also to assist clients in their business practices
  • A friendly “can do” attitude and an ability to communicate well.

If you think we could be the firm for you and you have got what it takes to join our team, then we would like to hear from you. Please apply using our application form below.
