People for Practice are currently looking to recruit an Accountant for a large, successful practice based in Cheshire.

This very busy practice has been trading for over 32 years, employs 55 staff and works with more than 3500 clients. They promote from within where possible and offer excellent progression opportunities for the right candidates.

This Accounts and Audit role would suit an ACCA qualified or part qualified Accountant with past practice experience.

The role, typically made up of 70% Accounts and 30% Audit, is an ideal opportunity for an individual to join an established Accountancy practice with excellent career prospects.

The main responsibilities of the successful candidate will include:
• Manage a large portfolio of clients from a wide range of business sectors
• Preparation and review of statutory accounts
• Take responsibility for the planning and completion of audits
• Liaise with clients, both face to face and over the phone. There will also be regular visits to client sites in and around the Manchester area.

The ideal candidate will possess:
• Accountancy experience gained within a Practice environment, minimum 2 years
• Must understand Auditing
• Being a large firm, the client has their own Payroll and Tax departments, as such this role will involve little to no Tax work. However, experience or at least an understanding of Tax etc would be advantageous
• Must be confident with and enjoy client interaction
• Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
• Experience in CCH, Quickbooks, Xero and Sage Line 50 would be beneficial but not essential
