In light of this, they are now looking to appoint an experienced Financial Accountant, to support the Finance Manager.

This is an exciting new opportunity for an experienced Financial Accountant to establish themselves in a growing SME business, with further opportunities for career development as the role will evolve over the next couple of years, in line with the on-going growth of the company itself.

Our client is looking for the successful individual to be competent in each of the above key areas. In addition, we are looking for someone who will come with the mind-set of simply rolling the sleeves up, as and when is required, which will involve assisting with certain transactional activities.

Although not essential our client has indicated that their preference would be to appoint someone who is actively studying towards their qualification but due consideration will be given to those who are Qualified by Experience.

The team that you will be joining is a very close knit team and it is therefore paramount that the successful individual comes with a positive 'team player’ mind-set and approach. Those coming from a similar sized SME background would also be of particular interest to our client, given the hands on, end to end nature of the role.

This will be a fairly swift recruitment process as the client is keen to have someone on board as soon as possible. Interview dates have already been scheduled for the week commencing 10th July.
