Interim Assistant Accountant (12 months) - Dartmouth - £22-27,000

Trial Balance Consulting have been exclusively reassigned by our super-friendly longstanding client, a specialist manufacturer and retailer based in the Dartmouth area, who seek to recruit an experienced Assistant Accountant to join them, initially on a 12 month contract but with strong potential to become a permanent position during this time. 

With client orders booked well into the next 18 months and a record year of sales over the past 12 months, business prospects are very encouraging and the accounting function is becoming busier and busier. Supporting the Finance Manager, the Assistant Accountant will take a lead role in maintaining the transactional elements of the accounting lifecycle. 

Typical duties to include: 

- Assisting with the preparation of monthly management accounts

- Variance analysis and budget reviews

- Sales reports and KPIS

- Balance sheet reconciliations

- Preparation of purchase and sales ledger invoices

We’re looking for a candidate with at least 12 months of recently gained experience operating at Accounts Assistant or Assistant Accountant level, ideally (though not essentially), within a manufacturing setting. The role would be particularly well suited to a recently qualified AAT candidate or somebody with suitable exposure at QBE level. Strong IT aptitude and good spreadsheet skills are essential and experience using Xero software would be advantageous, but full training will be given. 

The role will commence in late January/early February but this employer is keen to begin shortlisting for interview so applicants are encouraged to apply without delay. For further details and to apply, please contact Elle Benjamin quoting reference EB7039.
