Are you an Accounts Assistant or Bookkeeper, either studying the AAT or AAT Qualified and recently started the ACA, looking to join a high profile accounting firm / outsourced service provider who specialises in working with very large listed Property / Real Estate Companies? Are you keen to gain exposure to FTSE 100 and 250 clients? Are you looking to work for a niche business which isnt a traditional accountancy firm, receive full training so you can specialise in this rewarding sector and work for a business that will offer you career progression, growth opportunities and full study support for any remaining AAT / ACA exams? Based in a growing team of 5 and reporting to an experienced Manager, your role will include: monthly bank reconciliations, raising sales invoices and posting to the sales ledger, payment runs, managing the purchase ledger, uploading payments to the online banking system, reconciliation of monthly corporate expenses, assisting with postings to the nominal ledger, providing financial information and reports to assist with the production of management accounts and assisting with ad hoc requests and special projects as required.

You will either be studying the AAT or be in the early stages of the ACA. You must have general bookkeeping experience and knowledge of debits / credits. No experience of the property / real estate sector is required but a strong interest is essential. Experience of any accountancy software packages is desirable, and you must be looking for a challenging yet enjoyable role with quick progression and the ability to increase responsibility. You must have strong Excel skills, plus good communication skills and take ownership of your work.

This growing and very high profile business located in an excellent Zone 1 West End location will be able to offer you a challenging and varied role, plus full training so you can not only work on large listed Property / Real Estate businesses, but also to progress and carry out not only bookkeeping but also VAT and management accounts duties in the not too distant future.
