Company Accountant - Exeter / Hybrid - £: Negotiable DOE + very generous company performance related bonus + company vehicle (if required) 

Trial Balance Consulting have been engaged by a new client, a well-established and highly successful privately owned retail business with a superb history of staff retention. The business has tasked us with sourcing a Company Accountant, a permanent, full time role that can be operated on an on-site arrangement with a degree of hybrid working to be negotiated if required. 

This will be a broad and diverse role that works closely with a highly experienced Managing Director and the company’s long standing team of employees. The MD is hoping to locate a commercially astute accountant that can add a range of value to the business through the innovation of new and existing finance initiatives. Key responsibilities to include:

For this contract we seek an experienced technically and commercially astute accountant, either operating at a similar level or looking to take a step up. Whilst the successful candidate will ideally be part/fully professionally qualified (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), candidates who hold a full AAT qualification and consider themselves to be qualified by experience are most welcome to apply. Previous retail experience would be highly advantageous, but not essential. The business promotes a modern working environment making the most of current technology; this role would suit a candidate with strong IT aptitude and excellent skills in the use of MS Excel and bespoke digital accounting tools. Our client places more importance on person fit; this is a workplace that encourages a strong team environment where everyone works hard, but enjoys themselves whilst doing so. This will be a hands-on position that plays a vital role in the company’s success.

For further details and to apply, please contact Dan Saunders as soon as possible quoting reference DS9913. Our client is keen to appoint without delay and hopes to host interviews upon receipt of suitable applications.
