Full Time
Our client is recruiting for a Finance Assistant Manager.

We have had many applications of CVs from Audit related candidates (this is not an Audit role, it’s for an International Outsourcing division). We also see lots of CVs for people who do a bit of everything, so payroll, management accounts, tax returns, audit etc – that will mean they are from a small firm, with small clients (likely to be UK owner managed) and won’t be right for the client.

We need technically strong candidates, who can confidently review other team members work (full monthly management accounts). For the Assistant Manager role, you need to be confident and sociable and work well with people.

Our clients portfolio tend to be US companies, going to set up in the UK or Europe – they also tend to get a lot of tech companies (Pinterest, DocuSign for example).

We need people who can impress and who have exceptional communications skills.

Key Points:
Must be ACA / ACCA qualified (not CIMA)
As well as preparation, you must review monthly management accounts prepared by juniors (a big part of this role) and this needs to be stated on your CV (so we can see it’s a large part of your current role).
You need to have strong reviewing / technical skills.
You must have recent accountancy practice experience (so you have the experience in working with a portfolio of clients and juggling deadlines)
Have used Xero accounting software or cloud accountancy software in general

You will be dealing with in the region of 10 – 15 clients per month, preparing 2 to 3 larger sets of accounts and reviewing the remainder
