A leading Leeds based independent practice is recruiting an Accounts Semi Senior in the Yorkshire region. This practice was set up by 3 well networked Directors who both previously worked for the Big Four. Their entrepreneurial approach has created a modern, exciting and progressive practice that has enjoyed continued growth this year.

Client Details

This dynamic practice with multiple advisory service lines is recruiting an Accounts Semi Senior. Along with traditional accountancy services my client offers cloud based solutions for start-ups, micro businesses and consultants. This is the ideal opportunity for somebody who wants to work alongside well trained, entrepreneurial finance professionals.

As well as the opportunity for growth, this business offers some exciting benefits, including remote access. They encourage their employees to work flexibly from both their offices, as well as from home.

This is a particularly interesting prospect for ambitious candidates at the newly qualified level, as it differs from the 'traditional practice' by offering the opportunity to lead your own client portfolio much earlier in your career development.


An Accounts Semi Senior will need to be able to:

  • Prepare company accounts and corporation tax returns for limited companies, sole traders and partnerships.
  • Liaise professionally and attentively to your clients by phone and email as their main point of contact.
  • Manage a range of non-audit clients, under the supervision of a Manager and strengthen existing client relationships.
  • Identify tax planning opportunities
  • Add value to businesses by identifying further opportunities to assist/support
  • Advise your clients on software and book keeping related queries.


The ideal candidate will have previous experience working in an accounts based role in practice and will work both autonomously and comfortably in a team. They will need to be able to freely use their initiative in order to deliver accurate and timely accounts whilst responding to client queries.

This role is designed for somebody who is looking to further their career, therefore they will need a real drive about them and an ambition to want to progress. However those who have 10 years or more experience and looking for a better work life balance may also find this role both rewarding and flexible.

The successful candidate will need to have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. They will have a keen eye for detail with an organised approach to their work.

Job Offer

As Accounts Semi Senior for this modern Leeds based practice your starting salary will be between £18,000 - £24,000 + study package.
