Part Time
A close client of ours is looking to replace one of their Acc. Although the lady is full time and going on maternity leave, they’ve enough work to take on somebody permanently, and they can be extremely flexible with the hours – you might want full time, part time, or flexible working (for example, around school hours).

The firm is based in Clifton village, in beautiful modern refurbished offices. It’s a calm, spacious and relaxed working environment where you get a warm welcome, and they enjoy a bit of conversation while they work. It's a small team of 6, plus 2 partners, both of whom are down-to-earth and personable. Most in the offices are women but they would be very happy to welcome another chap!

The role is almost entirely accounts preparation, with the opportunity to do additional tax work if you’d like this. They have a professional portfolio of clients - sole traders, partnerships and limited companies gained by recommendation and with good relationships. They have very few shoebox jobs – almost all their clients provide balances electronically.
There would be lots of opportunity to visit clients and have a portfolio of your own to manage. If you would like some exposure to payroll this would be possible, too. They use Sage and PTP (Iris) software, but if you’ve had exposure to Xero that would be ideal.

About you as you can probably tell, the firm can flex to fit the person – ideally someone who will like to stay long term, fit nicely into the team and be able to work autonomously with limited supervision. They aren’t particular about qualifications – it’s the practical experience that matters.

The package would include a starting salary of £24-30k depending on your experience. Standard hours are 37.5 per week, (9-5) but start and finish times are very flexible and they can also consider part-time hours. Parking is extremely tricky in the area so this would better suit somebody living locally or commuting by public transport. Holiday says are negotiable within reason for the right person, and they are just about to be auto-enrolled onto a staff pension scheme.

To apply I hope I have done this great little position justice – if you would like to apply please contact me directly –, enclosing your CV and a bit about yourself (current salary and notice period are always helpful) and we can go from there. I look forward to hearing from you!
