Outsource Management Accountant
Industry Sector: Accounts
Job Ref: J2690
Tuesday 21st January 2020
£30,000 - £35,000 per Annum
You're already an accomplished Bookkeeper and Management Accountant, working for a good firm of Accountants. And you're a Xero expert. You're probably happy doing what you do, but thought you'd just have a look and see whether there is another life outside your own firm. After all, accountancy practices are all the same ... aren't they?
Or are they?
If you've considered working for a large independent firm, where career progression is truly possible without the need to study, you've probably thought that wasn't possible. But it is. Intrigued?
So what does your new role look like?
You'll be based in Stevenage, working for the outsource department of an ever expanding firm. Where this role differs from the rest is that you'll be working with clients who predominantly do their own bookkeeping. You'll be reviewing the bookkeeping and then preparing the management accounts and doing the VAT returns. The portfolio is diverse, ranging from sole traders, LLPs to small limited companies. No more incomplete records for you! You like managing your own portfolio? That's perfect because that's exactly what you'll be doing here.
You're likely to be AAT qualified already, although your experience of working in Practice is more important.
Your knowledge of Xero is essential and will be put to good use and training your clients to use it too. Your knowledge of other software such as Sage and QuickBooks would be useful here too.
You're thinking, "this sounds great but what are the salary and benefits like?" It's only natural. Put simply, they are excellent and include a company pension scheme, flexi time, and perk scheme, free parking and a central location. The hours are Monday to Thursday 8.30am to 5.15pm and on Fridays 8.30am - 5pm, so you even get to start your weekend earlier!
