Job Title: Accountant
Based: Braintree, Essex
Salary: £28k on a pro rata basis
Are you an experienced Part or fully Qualified Accountant?
Do you love working in a practice as opposed to within a company?
Fancy joining an entrepreneurial and expanding accountancy practice in Braintree?
And want to be a major driver in the growth of the business?
And looking for a part-time role?
If so, then read on as this could be your next career move.
We’re privileged to have been retained to help a very well-established accountancy firm just outside Braintree to add a new accountant to the organisation. This is a small team and so it’s vital you have the personality, drive as well as the skills to fit.
Your primary role will be to undertake and support all the compliance and statutory financial accounting work needed for their existing clients. You’d be helping other entrepreneurial companies based across Braintree, Chelmsford, Dunmow, Colchester, and London. The company’s founder and owner will help support you as these clients transition to your care, whilst they can then develop and expand the company further.
If you simply like the compliance and statutory 'stuff’, then this role is probably not for you. If you thrive in an environment where you can guide, advise and help SME business owners, then this could be your next move.
You will have the following personality, skills, and experience:
- Full or Part-qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA or CIMA)
- Wants to work part-time
- Practice accountancy experience - this is an absolute must have
- Strong communication skills
- Proven ability to advise and help non-financially minded senior managers and business owners to understand what the data tells you
- Desire to join a small team
- Excellent analytical skills
- Focuses on attention to detail
- Good time management and organisational skills
If you’re interested in expanding your practice accountancy experience and joining a well-established yet growing team, please send your CV across so one of our team can call and discuss the next steps with you.
Please advise in your cover letter what part-time looks like for you e.g. 25 hours over 5 days each week (this is just an example - we are looking for the right person, not just someone who can work lots of hours!)
We look forward to hearing from you.
