Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Interim Company Accountant - Exeter - £30-35,000 FTE

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been exclusively assigned by a well-established and recognisable commercial services business located on the outskirts of Exeter (free onsite parking). They currently seek to recruit an experienced Company Accountant, initially to join them on an ongoing interim basis but with some potential to convert to a permanent contract. The role is full time (35 hours p/w) and will be based from the company’s HQ.   

The role works as part of an extremely friendly and energetic management team and report directly to the Managing Director. This is a standalone role where the successful candidate will have full autonomy to implement improvements in systems and procedures. It’s a broad role and the Company Accountant will enjoy a variety of responsibilities to include: 

Key responsibilities to include: 

- Accounts preparation for month end reporting

- Preparation of management accounts

- Accounts to Trial Balance

- Statutory compliance

- Preparing P&L reports

- Purchase and sales ledger

- Preparing and submitting VAT returns

- Bank reconciliation

- Credit Control 

- Petty cash

- Liaising with Chartered Accountants & Auditors

- Dealing with customer and supplier queries

We’re more focussed on relevant experience than qualification so welcome applications from those who are part/fully professionally qualified (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), or qualified by experience. A strong working knowledge of Sage Line 50 and MS Excel absolutely essential. The person-fit is almost as valuable as technical experience as the successful candidate will be working as part of a small and busy team.
