Job Type : Permanent
Location : Farnham, Surrey
Salary : £18,000 to £21,000 + Good Benefits including parking
Reference : P 11063
Our client is a growing, dynamic and progressive firm of Accountants based on the Surrey / Hampshire borders. Due to the continued success and growth of the company, they are looking to recruit an experienced bookkeeper to join their Farnham office. You will join and support a skilled team in the outsourcing department.
Working as part of a small team, you will undertake bookkeeping and VAT returns for a variety of clients. You will also be involved in the preparation of management accounts for certain clients. This is often a process driven role and requires someone who understands and can work in this manner.
You will have a number of clients allocated to you, who you will liaise directly with, as well as undertaking some tasks as assigned by the Outsourcing Solutions Manager.
Although the majority of work will be office based, some of the work will be undertaken on clients’ sites.
It is essential that the person is able to work independently with little assistance. You will be confident dealing with clients and able to answer questions whilst on site. However, you will also know when it is necessary to pass questions back to the Outsourcing Solutions manager or partner.
Ideally, you will be AAT or ACCA part qualified and previous bookkeeping experience is essential - you will be comfortable completing accounts using Sage Line 50 to trial balance, including reconciling bank and other control accounts, posting journals and preparing VAT returns. Knowledge of IRIS software would be helpful but not essential.
Our clients are our greatest resource, with over 95% of new business being generated from their recommendations. As such it is crucial that the person has good communication skills and will provide a friendly and professional service to clients.
Due to business location and as travel to clients’ premises is involved in the role, it is essential you are a car driver / car owner. Free parking is available on site.
This is a super opportunity to join a busy, professional and inclusive company where the staff are valued for their skills and contribution to the on-going success of the organisation.
Salary will be based on 37.5 hours / 5 days per week.
There is a basic 20 working days holiday per annum in addition to the usual public holidays. Holiday entitlement is increased by 1 day per year for each year worked at the firm, up to a maximum of 25 days holiday per annum.
If you have the proven skills to meet this role, please APPLY NOW. All applications will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
Please note that whilst we attempt to respond to all applicants this can take some time. Thank you.
