Job Description

Are you an Accounts Senior with a strong statutory accounts background, looking to upgrade to a Top 15 firm based in Central London? Are you either a fully qualified ACA or a finalist with a couple of exams left until fully qualified? Are you looking for a role where you can utilise your statutory accounts experience and work in a friendly and supportive firm, but gain a Top 15 name on your CV? Are you keen to work on larger, more interesting and technically more complex clients, where 50% of your clients will be from creative, media and entertainment sectors and the other 50% sectors such as technology, property, solicitors and renewable energy? Are you looking for a large firm role with better future progression and prospects? Based in a busy team where most staff come from small and medium firm backgrounds, your role will be varied and will mainly consist of preparing statutory accounts, but also management accounts and corporation tax returns. You will also have some staff management responsibilities. The firm is also happy to provide audit training if someone wishes to gain some audit experience. Most clients are UK based but some have an international element to them. The firm uses caseware for accounts preparation work, Alpha Tax for tax computations and Xero, Quickbooks Online and Sage for Bookkeeping and VAT work.

To be considered for this new role (March 2021) you must be an Accounts Senior with a strong background in preparing statutory accounts for a wide range of clients, and either be a fully qualified ACA or have a few exams remaining. Experience of audit would also be an advantage but not essential as training can be provided if audit exposure is desired. You must be working for a good quality practice firm, be a team player, and be able to work to tight deadlines. Experience of a range of software packages, including Caseware, is an advantage but training can be provided. You must be a team player, be entrepreneurial and have a commercial mind.

This large Top 15 practice based in a prime location in London is growing at a rapid rate, particularly in gaining new, larger clients from larger accountancy firms. They are winning a large volume of new clients from many of their competitors and can offer you the chance to work on and advise many interesting and large international groups and listed businesses both in the UK and abroad. Many of the staff in this firm came from small and medium firm backgrounds and they have had great success with candidates who are looking to relocate to London from other areas of the UK. Overall this is a great, rare opportunity for an Accounts Senior with strong experience in statutory accounts, to join a Top 15 firm in London and have a rewarding and enjoyable career with great progression on offer.
