Are you stuck in a catch-22 where you need experience to get experience? Are you a part qualified accountant trying to reach the next step in your career? We can help.

You don’t need experience completing monthly management accounts and maintaining a clean balance sheet, (though it wouldn’t hurt) because we’ll give you training to get you up to speed. Obviously you’ll need some accounting experience, as well as an AAT qualification or similar, and ideally you’ll be looking to work towards your ACCA or CIMA.

You’ll also be managing the accounts and sales administration team, with support from the regional finance manager, so you’ll need to be confident leading a team and helping them achieve their KPI’s by coaching and training them as well as ensuring there are always enough people in.

This is a designate role, which means you'll be providing maternity cover for the first 6 months, before moving onto other exciting challenges within CarShop.

CarShop is the UK’s leading used car supermarket, and we’re part of the European Sytner group.

This role is vital to our Mission at CarShop which is to ‘deliver a world-class colleague and customer experience.’ We’ll work hard to offer you a great place to work, and in turn we hope you’ll give an amazing service to your colleagues.

As well as a great feeling of satisfaction for a job well done, there are some other benefits you’ll receive:

  • 22 days’ holiday plus bank holidays (Goes up with length of service)
  • Discounted gym membership
  • Wide range of membership and high street discounts
  • Childcare vouchers and cycle to work scheme
  • Life assurance scheme
  • Discounted private medical scheme
  • Colleague car scheme

Once you’ve completed your application we’ll get in touch to talk about next stages.
