We are looking for an A+ member of staff to join a team of 15 people at our busy Corstorphine, Edinburgh office.


Now that you’ve watched video you will see what our customers say about us. We're looking for someone to join our team so that we can continue to deliver top class results to our many customers.

Our new Accountant will lead our Tech Hub – the team responsible for delivering the bread and butter of our business; everything from complicated sets of limited company accounts to self-assessment tax returns, VAT returns, payroll… and the many other things we deliver.

The office environment is busy, fast paced, fun, sometimes pressured but always focussed on our customers.

As a business we are constantly striving to deliver the very best in customer service.  We are deadline driven, have lots and lots of clients and are moving from the traditional view of an accountant to a tech driven company offering business advice and support.

The team is a dedicated bunch, tight knit and enjoy the occasional night out!  We continue to grow so are constantly on the lookout for like-minded people to join us.

So, what are we looking for in our new Accountant?

Of course, we’re looking for the obvious: we need someone who is qualified and with a practising certificate.  Our Accountant must be able to apply that knowledge in a practical sense too, especially with our customers who are predominantly smaller businesses.  Our accountant must be accurate and have attention to detail.  They must be analytical and be able to evaluate a given situation, whether relating to a customer or a colleague.

Beyond the obvious, we’re looking for something more in our new Accountant.

We are a fast growing practice with big plans and we’re moving into the digital world just as fast as we can.  We need an Accountant who is tech savvy and comfortable working in the digital world or at the very least understands what the digital world is going to look like for our industry and embraces the challenge.

We need someone who can work with their colleagues, coaching them to develop knowledge and understanding.  They need to be a motivator and want to lead a team of people to deliver A+ results for our customer group.

Finally, our Accountant will be energetic and enthusiastic.  They will be focussed on A+ delivery, be optimistic and want to push their career in accountancy by developing their skills and knowledge further.

So, to summarise.

The role is busy... essentially our new Accountant will be looking after the technical needs of our ever growing customer whilst while leading, developing and nurturing a team of hard working and dedicated accountants and bookkeepers.

Next Steps: In the first instance you should call Richard Lambert on 0131 202 9888.  We’re looking to fill this role as quickly as possible and so will be running interviews over the next couple of weeks.

Interviews will be at our office in Corstorphine, Edinburgh and there will be two of them – firstly a get to know you meeting (we know you’ll be looking at us as well as us looking at you) and then a more in depth interview if you are successful through the first stage.
