  • Assisting with the production of monthly management and annual statutory accounts

  • Studying, or desire to study, towards a recognised professional accounting qualification (ACA/CIMA/ACCA) is desirable.
  • The role can be suitable for entry level accountants with minimal relevant experience who have a strong academic record and a drive to progress with a finance career, through to part qualified accountants or those with three years experience in a similar role, to exam finalists or those with up to five years in a similar role. Relevant experience includes working as part of a financial reporting team, management accounting, budgeting, working with financial systems and working as part of a larger team to achieve common goals.
