Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Assistant Accountant - Truro area - £18-23,000

The best thing about working with repeat clients is that we’re able to fully appreciate their working culture, conditions and environment. It’s one thing for a new employer to tell us that they have a happy, longstanding workforce, but quite another when our previously placed Financial Controller tells us how great a business and its employees are. And this role has come about purely through expansion so once again, nothing sinister lurking behind the scenes. 

Based on the outskirts of Truro with the all-important parking (for every employee), this manufacturing and services business is an award-winning Cornish success story. Now a decade since launch, their services & products are stylish, highly desirable and very well respected in Cornwall. 

They’ve tasked us with assisting in the recruitment of an experienced Assistant Accountant. The role works very closely with Financial Controller but also with senior managers from other departments, so good interpersonal skills and a true desire to understand every aspect of the business are essential. We’re looking for an individual with experience in the production of management accounts/information, but also with an excellent working knowledge of the finance fundamentals; sales & purchase ledger, VAT, year-end statements, and ideally a working knowledge of CIS. You’ll need a good aptitude for IT (they predominantly use Sage, MS Excel and COINS), and hopefully you’ll be AAT qualified or above, but certainly with sufficient experience in a similar role to bring benefit from day one. 

For further details and to apply, contact Elle Benjamin quoting reference EB6475 as soon as possible. Interviews to be arranged ASAP.
