Finance Support Technician - Remote/Devon - £26k - £31k
***Please note that this role will be permanently based from home/remotely, but candidates must reside within a commutable distance of Devon***
Not every accounting role entails the endless crunching of numbers...
We’ve worked with this business on numerous occasions over the past 24 months and all of our placed candidates have reported an extremely interesting and unique working environment. This is the perfect opportunity for a finance professional with a good knowledge of multiple accounting platforms, gained experience in an accounts environment and, most importantly, with a strong aptitude for mastering bespoke accounting ERPs.
About the employer: A little over three years old, this software developer is growing very rapidly indeed. They produce a sector specific all-in-one accounting platform that links site level finance transactions to centralised HQ's. The platform is extremely popular within their client market; one of the most future proof sectors in the UK. They’re a young business, with a young senior management team, and a real passion for their product.
About the role: This is a finance role with a twist. The post holder will work very closely with customers, typically finance leaders operating at FC, FD, and Head of Finance level. You'll receive the training to become an accomplished guru in the efficient use of the software and that, combined with your pre-existing knowledge of the day to day operations of a typical finance team, will allow you to offer tailored support to clients that require technical assistance. Please note that this is not a call centre environment. The Finance Support Technician will build a strong rapport with a handful of major clients. You’ll develop a strong understanding of their business model, their accounting operations and will likely be on a first name basis with their system users.
Where this role is based: This role is permanently based remotely/from home. However, suitable candidates must be based within a commutable distance of the company HQ in Devon to enable ongoing product training and to ensure that you have a close working relationship with your colleagues. The company will provide all of the necessary IT and telephony equipment, broadband, and even home office furniture to ensure that the role can be completed in comfort and with all tools at your disposal.
What we’re looking for: An enthusiastic individual with at least 2 years months of recently experience working at least an Accounts Assistant level in any sector. You should have a solid understanding of the main accounting principles and an understanding of the finance lifecycle. The company provides bespoke, sector specific software and whilst previous experience won’t be required, some experience of working with modern accounting systems and an aptitude for picking up new applications will be essential.
