Job Description

Company description 

We are a firm of accountants based in Milton Keynes. We help our clients build better businesses through our range of growth accounting services. All that we do is centred around what the client is trying to achieve – their vision. Our services all involve a great deal more conversations with our clients, much more than the traditional annual accountant. 

Our values of Integrity, Collaboration and Drive underpin everything we do and who we are. They drive how we want to operate and how we help our clients. 

The role 

This is a key role in the business focused on working with the wider team to help build the core numbers for our clients. It is a great way to develop your understanding of Finance foundations across a range of clients, and to build your basic accounting and tax knowledge. 

The idea being that you progress into being responsible for a portfolio of clients where you will help look after your clients bookkeeping, management accounts, VAT, year-end accounts, corporation tax, payroll and personal tax.   You’ll become their financial eyes and ears.   

That means you’ll need to have a desire to understand the clients and what they are trying to achieve.  You will also want to build your professional experience and exposure, including communication and organisation skills.   

The skills you will need 

You’ll be excited to start your career in accountancy and be open to the opportunities you will be presented with.  

You’ll need to be highly organised. 

You’ll need to have strong communication skills, to be clear and confident with your colleagues and with your clients. 

You’ll need to invest in your own development because we will too. We’ll support you through all your training. 

You’ll need to have a desire to want to help clients, to see the bigger picture, what that means for them, and how to put it all into action. 

Key Requirements 

This role is open to both school leavers and graduates.

5 or more GCSEs grade 5 or above (to include English and Maths) 

Desire to work towards a qualification (ACA, ACCA or AAT) 
Experience in using Microsoft Office, particularly MS Excel, MS Outlook and MS Word

If you are already studying towards your AAT and plan to move on to ACA then we still want to hear from you.

What next? 

If you want to kick start your career in accountancy then we’d love to hear from you. 

So, send us your CV and a covering note to explain why you would be a good fit for us and we’ll go from there.
