We‘re at interview stage but it‘s not too late. Suitably experienced candidates invited to apply ASAP.

Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Assistant Accountant - Barnstaple - £25-30,000

If you’re an ambitious and experienced Assistant Accountant, or perhaps a Finance Manager looking for an opportunity with a focus on career development, this brand-new role should be of interest. Trial Balance Consulting have been exclusively assigned by a prominent and long-standing Barnstaple based services business who are enjoying a period of sustained growth. 

This is a newly created role that works closely with the company’s Finance Director and as part of a small finance team. The business is seeking a highly capable candidate who is focussed on progression as it is highly likely that the role will develop to Finance Manager or Financial Controller status in the future. 

The successful candidate will take a lead role in ensuring that day-to-day accounting controls operate efficiently and effectively. The post holder will also head up the production of monthly management accounts and ensure full statutory compliance under the watchful eye of a very experienced Finance Director. 

Key responsibilities to include: 

- Oversee the accounts payable/receivable function

- Production of management accounts and forecasts

- Assist in the production of annual accounts for audit

- Assist with tax reporting and compliance including VAT and corporate tax

- Reporting and analysis

- Oversee company payroll

We’re looking for an experienced, outgoing and ambitious candidate with at least two years of recently gained experience in a similar capacity. Ideally, you’ll be fully AAT, part professionally qualified (ACCA/CIMA/ACA), or able to demonstrate suitable experience in a QBE capacity. The role works within a busy, friendly finance team but the successful candidate will also work across broad range of departments and commentate financial information to non-financial managers, so excellent interpersonal skills required. 

For further details and to apply, please contact Steve Roach quoting reference SR7160 ASAP. Our client is poised to conduct interviews as soon as possible so please don’t delay in applying.
