Why choose us?
With around 450 employees we're a sizeable firm that still continues to grow, known for its friendly and welcoming culture where team work and collaboration is key, watch this short video to see what our people have to say about us.
For safety at this time our people are working remotely, though everyone is looking forward to getting back to the office at least part time, where our lovely culture is clear to see. We work hard but we also have fun and we're missing that social interaction with each other that really embeds our culture. That said, we have video meeting capability so we can still stay in contact as much as possible. This unusual time has proved we can work effectively as a business from home if needs be, so whilst we don't yet know how things will look when we return to our offices, what we do know now, is we can discuss the individual flexible needs for every employee and team without agility barriers.
We offer a competitive salary, holiday allowance that increases after 12 months with the firm, contribute to your pension pot, have an informal dress code which allows you to dress appropriately for your day no matter what day it is, give you private healthcare and life assurance, as well as offering a range of discounts with local businesses and with so many excellent internal training programmes on offer to everyone it's so easy to develop and improve your skills.
We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity, we're striving to create an environment where everyone, regardless of background, can reach their full potential.
So who are we hoping will apply?
You'll be a qualified accountant (CIMA, ACCA or ACA) with recent experience of UK GAAP. Your ability to organise and handle multiple demands and deadlines simultaneously will surely help you succeed in this role.
Perhaps you are looking for a change a scene, a new challenge, or ready to take the next step. Whatever your goal may be, your positive and highly driven attitude will fit right in. If you have an eye for detail and quality, with good IT skills and knowledge of general accounting systems technology (particularly Excel and SQL) we would love to hear from you.
It's handy to let us know what works for you in terms of full or part time. Remember that four or five days per week is an option, with at least one of those working from home.
