Job Description

Ascendis Audit Limited is a new practice based in Wilmslow, Cheshire (with an office in Manchester City Centre) so you will be one of the first members of our team. There is no glass ceiling here - if you do well, you will progress. You will be working on a diverse client base. 

The Ascendis Group is a dynamic practice with a range of other services under one roof (accounting, tax, corporate finance, financial management, and funding solutions). The team is young and the culture is friendly with strong teamworking.

The main element of the work will be assisting on statutory audits and reporting to an audit senior on areas such as cash at bank, P&L transactions (sales, purchases,payroll), trial balance and journals.

We are looking for a school leaver (16 or 18). Experience is not essential as you will be trained both in the office and on the job. All we want is someone with self-confidence, good people and communication skills, and a willingness to learn. A driving licence and a car would be desirable in order to travel to clients.

We operate a hybrid working policy (part in the office, part working from home) although the role will be more office based in the early months due to the training required and clients may expect on site working.

We will also support you in working towards a professional accountancy qualification (eg AAT) with study leave and training costs.

Flexible working hours are permitted when in the office - 7.5 hours per day starting between 8 - 10am and finishing between 4 - 6pm with a lunch break of 30 minutes.

Holiday entitlement is 25 days p.a plus bank holidays. You will also get a day off for your birthday (or the next working day if over a weekend).
