£60,000 - £65,000 per Annum

You're a qualified accountant with experience working in an SME and your next job move needs to be enjoyable, have purpose and prospects.

An interesting position, maybe newly created for you, in a growing business that would love you to be part of the next phase, using your technical knowledge, experience and proactive approach to support strategic decision making.

Where you'll report to the FD whose role has broadened and includes company operations, so you'll deal with the day to day including management reporting, variance analysis, costing, and group consolidation. As well as cash management, balance sheet recs, tax, statutory reporting and dealing with auditors.

Where you'll have the ear of the directors and be really appreciated for your proactivity, your technical capability and team management.

And your proactivity, to ensure the business is meeting its statutory needs, changing as it grows, will be valued.

We know just the thing ...

A business that was turning over £4m three years ago and has now reached £12m, continues to grow and this includes plans to expand into Europe in 2023. They're in maintenance and installations and recently added health and safety to their offering.

Growing means they are making big changes to ensure they are attractive to new employees but currently a package of 30 days annual leave including bank holidays (you'll need to save some for Christmas close), a good AXA healthcare policy and a brand-new non-discretionary bonus scheme is being implemented ( they're just ironing out the details).

Pension is statutory but they acknowledge this might become part of your remit to look around at improving in time.

However, the job is not WFH or hybrid - it's working from offices Monday to Friday, now the country is getting into something resembling 'normal' after COVID. Hours are 8.30 am to 5 pm. If you need to tweak those a bit to fit around another commitment, we'll ask.
