Lead Accountant

Posted 7 March by REED Accountancy Featured Ended
This small firm just outside Long Eaton has a brand new position for a Lead Accountant because business is buoyant and their client portfolio is growing steadily. This could be right up your street if you are looking to work for a supportive practice who invest in their staff, and where you have a real opportunity to make an impact. 

When speaking to the owner, it was very clear that hard work is rewarded, with real potential for salary increases in a short space of time (to which he shared examples of current staff members). These can be achieved by completing exams, hitting targets and coming up with ideas that have a positive outcome for the business.  

They have an extremely high retention rate and this is due to the fact that they really look after and incentivise their staff members, with salaries at the top end of the market, up to 10% bonus (performance based) and 5% employer pension contribution. This is in addition to 32 days holiday (inc. statutory) - however if you wanted to work on a bank holiday and save your annual leave for another day, this is also acceptable. 

You'll join a mixed team, ranging in age and qualification (AAT Qualified to ACCA / ACA / Qualified) The office has a nice buzz about it with a good split of men and women. 

So what does the role entail? 

Working alongside other members of the accounts production team, you will be delivering self assessment, partnership and limited company accounts and tax returns. You will be issuing draft accounts to the client after their own internal review. Your workload will be fast paced and varied in accounts and tax preparation. The focus of the role will be reviewing numbers and gaining client approval. You will also be expected to provide guidance to the production team to improve the process of creation of accounts. 

To apply for the role, you will need to be Qualified ACCA / ACA with 2 years + post qualifications. If you have used the software Iris / Taxcalc software this would be hugely advantageous. You will need to enjoy a client facing role and have a keen eye for detail. The firm prides itself on customer service and once you're in, you will be motivated and encouraged to achieve your absolute potential. 

Many thanks.
