Job Description

Are you an Accounts Assistant or Accounts Semi Senior who is AAT Qualified or studying AAT level 4 and looking to start the ACA, or have already started studying for the ACA and passed up to 4 of the first papers? Do you have between one and three years experience working in an accountancy practice firm and looking to upgrade to a large Top 20 London based practice which has had great success recruiting staff from small and medium sized firms in the past? Are you keen to upgrade to a larger firm but still work in a mixed, general practice role? Are you keen to work in a role mixed between statutory accounts and management accounts preparation, corporation tax returns, VAT returns, bookkeeping and ad hoc assignments? Are you looking to get a large firm name on your CV, work in a friendly office and also receive study support for your remaining AAT / ACA exams? Would you like the opportunity to work with a mixture of large businesses, but also smaller SME clients from a wide range of sectors, with client turnovers ranging to over £100m? If so, this growing international Top 20 accountancy practice firm based in a prime location in the City is looking to recruit a new member of staff due to impressive growth over the last few years and winning new clients from larger firms.

You must have at least 12 – 18 months of experience working for a UK based practice firm, and have experience of the above duties, particularly preparing statutory accounts from scratch as well as tax returns, VAT and bookkeeping. Experience of management accounts would be an advantage but training can be provided. Experience of a wide range of software packages, including CCH, sage and Xero, would also be an advantage. You must now be looking to upgrade to a large Top 20 practice based in a City location in Central London where you can continue with your accountancy career, work on an interesting client base and receive top training and support.

This growing Top 20 international accountancy firm has a great reputation for being a friendly and supportive place to work and providing their staff with challenging and varied roles.

Overall this is a unique opportunity for a good quality Accounts Semi Senior / Accounts Assistant who is AAT qualified (or studying AAT level 4) from a practice background to join a leading player within business services and carry out a high profile role with study support, great training and genuine progression on offer.
