My client is recruiting for a strong technical Company Accountant to come in and join them at a very exciting time. The business is currently in a period of growth and after out-sourcing their accounts function, they are now excited to be bringing the role in-house. As a result, they are looking for an AAT Qualified Accountant / Bookkeeper to join them on either a full-time or part-time permanent basis.

My client will also consider applicants who are Qualified by Experience, possess a strong technical accounting background, having worked within the SME/construction sector previously. This role requires a hands-on and personable approach, as you will be required to attend Group meetings, meet with internal/external customers and liaise with the engineers in order to fully understand all aspects of the business.

Key responsibilities will include:

On a full-time basis, hours of work will be 8.30am – 4.30pm or 9am – 5.00pm but my client is prepared to be flexible. Part-time, they are ideally looking for 25 – 30 hours per week, but again can be discussed at interview for the ‘right’ individual.

Other benefits include:

28 days holiday increasing with service, NEST pension scheme and long-term as the business grows there may be opportunities for an enhanced benefits package.
