This highly respected accounting practice based near Wantage.

They have experienced considerable growth through proactive client development and providing exceptional service and advice. They continue to have exciting growth plans for the business and their team and are now looking for a Senior Bookkeeper who possesses an exceptional personality and passion for personal development to join their friendly team and to assist and support their growing client portfolio.

What About You?
You're methodical and practical with a high level of attention to detail and a pro-active and flexible attitude. You're considered a safe pair of hands, you like to get things right and achieve results. It's likely that you're already qualified to AAT Level 4 or the equivalent by experience.

You're diligent - You know your debits and credits and can post journals for a variety of purposes. A 10+ page bank statement is just what you want to get your hands on. You're comfortable learning and using new accounting packages.

You like the fact that there's someone to ask for help, but you're not afraid to work it out for yourself. You recognise that switching from one client's books to another is a normal part of life, even when they're incomplete, but you'll keep it on your radar whilst moving on to something else.

You're keen to develop your skills, love to be part of a team which recognises when you've done a good job and where your personality can shine through.

What will you be working on?
They are going to give you the opportunity to work with a variety of accounting software packages (including internet based systems) in order to deliver monthly management accounts and the preparation for financial year end. You'll be responsible for:

- Working on a portfolio of client accounts
- Bank & credit card reconciliations
- Processing monthly journals such as payroll, depreciation, accruals and prepayments and month end procedures and reports
- Preparation of VAT calculations and VAT returns
- Documenting, reviewing and checking your work and month end reports before sending out to clients

What are the future opportunities?
You might like to learn new systems, maybe even aspire to develop a career as a chartered accountant or perhaps you'd like to specialise in VAT or training the clients they help.

Why Might You Want To Work Here?

You like to feel appreciated and valued.

You're frustrated at all that study and not having the chance to shine.

You're intrigued at the possibility of being considered for part of the ownership of the business as you continue to develop and progress.

You want to know what's happening, where the business is going and be able to contribute to that direction.

You wish you could be part of an organisation that values caring, respect, responsibility, learning, teamwork, honesty, excellence, fun, recognition, openness and generosity.

If this describes you, then they want to discuss how you could become the next star team member they are seeking.
