If you're an experienced assistant accountant and you're not especially unhappy where you're working at the moment, what would encourage you to make a move?

Would it be a business that has grown in an extraordinary way in the past twelve months alone, whilst being already well established? In fact, currently building and investing for the future.

Perhaps one that was set in a stunning rural location meaning that the return to the office, post-Covid, ensures a relatively easy drive and a parking space right outside the office. With relaxing lunchtime walks.

Where the HR Manager of three years talks so excitedly about the culture of the business that you know she means it when she says it's a 'wonderful', happy, friendly, supportive place to be. Somewhere that is very much a family, not highly corporate, and where everyone understands that whilst they have an area of personal responsibility, they help each other. Mucking in when it's necessary to get tasks completed.

One where you'll work for a CEO who, despite many years in the business, is so innovative that he's considered a pioneer in his industry.

And a sector that can only keep growing. Because the area it works in is absolutely essential and its potential customers just keep on growing.

Well, this assistant accountant position is working within a business that ticks EVERY SINGLE box above and needs someone like you to complement its team and help to take the business through the next stage of growth.


In short, you'll be supporting a financial accountant and the wider finance team, providing accurate controls, helping to prepare multiple monthly management accounts packs, accruals, prepayments, journals systems admin and lots of reconciliation work. All using Sage, so having this will give you a very distinct advantage.

In an ideal world, you'll be AAT qualified, maybe working towards your ACCA or CIMA. But if you're technically sound and got great SME practical experience, or from practice looking for a step into industry, we'd like to hear from you.

It's a 40 hour week but they're pretty flexible about how those hours are made up, provided core hours are covered daily. So if that's 8.30 am to 4.30 pm, fine. If it's 9 to 5. Also all right.

This is a business where you'll have the chance to shine and be part of something very special. A business that hires people who are calm and respectful. In normal times, soon to be resumed, there are social events, the office is fab and you'll work for and with some lovely people who are valued.

Whilst it's a profitable, high turnover and flourishing business, its staff numbers only a year ago were small. So the company benefits scheme are still small scale with 28 days holiday (including bank holiday) and a contributory pension scheme. But that's for now.

Don't let that put you off. They are very much about their people and you'll have job security.
