Full Time

Need flexibility? Want something a bit different? Fit work around YOUR schedule and become our brilliant bookkeeping hero.

Maybe your kids have started school and you're getting back into work, or maybe you just want a job that isn't your regular 9-5. Whatever the case, this is the flexibility you need! We'll want you to do 20 hrs/wk as standard, and we'd prefer if you can do the hours near the start of the week (there's not much desk space, and that's the time of the week when we're quietest).

If you could run our payroll too, then we'll turn this into a full-time job, juggling both roles (if this sounds like you, then SHOUT about it on your application!

We're a small ice-cream business and love what we do - everything's organic, free-range, British or fair trade and we make all ice cream by hand. British? Yes. Traditional and boring?Definitely not! We constantly experiment and surprise with brave flavour combinations - Stilton & brandy, brown toast & marmalade, or horseradish ice cream (it really does work!). When it comes to ice-cream, we know what we're talking about, but we need YOU to be the financial expert and understand the challenges of a small business. You'll analyse, streamline and create efficiencies in everything we do, helping us grow bigger and better even faster!

We're an open-minded bunch, but we know you need certain skills to be an awesome bookkeeper, so you have used Xero and know it well, have experience working in finance for a small business - an AAT qual or part qualification would be useful.

You don't just have a fantastic 'finance brain' - you problem-solve, self-motivate, juggle your 'to do' list, and as well and being a capable bookkeeper, you get stuck in with whatever needs doing (sometimes it gets busy and we all just chip in!). You've got previous experience as a bookkeeper and a solid understanding of accounting payable/receivable principles, as well as year end and HMRC submission, bot ledgers and VAT & annual accounts filing.

Basically, you're a bit of a finance hero and feel totally comfortable when you are:

  • Recording day to day financial transactionsand completing the posting process as well as recording cash receipts and maintaining the petty cash fund
  • Maintaining the purchase ledger, checking & posting purchase invoices plus ensuring they're paid in a timely manner (you're firm but always polite and appropriate!)
  • Prepping and processing supplier payment runsfor authorised invoices
  • Maintaining the Sales ledger
  • Conducting periodic reconciliations of all accountsto ensure their accuracy

So pretty much what you'd expect, right, except you do it with smiles and a heck of a lot of ice-cream!

If this job makes your taste buds tingle, then APPLY NOW! Send your CV and write 'A Bookkeeper works better with ice-cream!' in your cover email - I only want someone like YOU who reads the whole advert...!

DISCLAIMER: An unhealthy passion for ice cream isn't essential... but I reckon it'll help!
