This is a great opportunity for an experienced Accounts Technician to work in Central Wells, Somerset for a growing accountancy practice firm with an enthusiastic and team playing attitude. On offer is a varied, Client facing role with opportunities for development and progression. Our Client provides a wide spectrum of accountancy practice services to a varied client base including limited companies, OMBs and SMEs varying in turnover and sectors, as well as sole traders and partnerships. This role has arisen through growth in their outsourcing accounting function, with the need to support the practice’s Senior Accountant in a “hands on” role with Client contact and facing responsibilities. You will join as an Accounts Technician initially working with commercial, smaller OMBs, sole traders and partnerships. Duties will include book-keeping on SAGE, QuickBooks and Excel, preparing VAT returns, personal and company taxation and management accounts production. There will be an “on site” Client facing element to this role, working with Clients and assisting the Senior Accountant. This role will provide many opportunities for learning, development and progression within the practice team. The successful candidate will be AAT qualified or qualified by experience, with at least 2 to 3 years accounting experience (ideally within practice) and will be able to evidence competency in all aspects of book-keeping up to and including the preparation of management accounts. Knowledge of Sage and / or QuickBooks and a strong working knowledge of Excel will be required. Good communication skills will be required to succeed within this role – someone who enjoys interacting with Clients (both on site Client facing and over the telephone or via e-mail). Although the majority of work will be undertaken at the practice’s offices in Wells, being a car owner/driver will be essential to visit Clients and to be able to work from their premises on occasions. The salary range for this position is from £20,000 to £25,000 p.a. (depending upon experience). The working days and hours are Monday to Friday, 37.5 hours per week to be worked either from 08.30 to 17.00 or from 09.00 to 17.30.
