Senior Accountant – June 2020 

 

Our company has been established for over 20 years with its main operational office in Reigate, which is where the position will be centred. We also have offices in London and East Grinstead. The majority of our client base is concentrated in London and the South East across a broad range of industries in the SME sector, although we do have a niche specialism in the medical sector and specifically the GP market. There will be a necessity to travel throughout the country and possibly include international travel from time to time.  

Flexible working arrangements can be offered provided they meet the demands and requirements of the business and our clients.  

We are looking for a qualified ACA/ACCA with at least 5 years of practical experience (inclusive of training contract time) seeking their ‘next step’. At least 3 years of the experience must be in practice.  

The candidate will need to possess and demonstrate good communication skills, an ability to use their initiative and work independently when required. We are a small firm and being able to work effectively within a team is essential. We are an ICAEW training practice so some supervision of junior staff will be necessary, including supporting them with work commitments, alongside offering technical support and training when required.  

The role will include developing relationships with clients, building on strong, existing connections, and being a key contact point for personnel of larger clients. 

This position will provide the successful candidate with an excellent opportunity to develop their skills in a broad based general practice with a high quality client portfolio. There will be exposure to all areas of accountancy including, accounts preparation, tax compliance & planning and management accounts. Some assistance in audit may be required from time to time but this is not expected to form a substantial part of the role.  

The successful candidate is expected to work across our entire portfolio initially; however, there are opportunities to specialise, if preferred. Appropriate training and support will be offered to assist in both scenarios.  

The starting salary is competitive and dependent on experience. Subsequent pay awards are based on performance in the role. We are offering the role on a full-time, permanent basis. Opportunities for future advancement are possible for the suitable candidates, owing to planned retirement and anticipated continued growth.
