I have just met with a well-established and fast-paced 6 Partner accountancy practice based in Billericay, who are looking for an Assistant Accountant due to a series of recent client wins. With a prime location, the office is easily accessible for both an East London and Essex based Assistant Accountant just a 5-minute walk from the local train station and providing on-site parking for all staff.

The business accounts team strive to deliver a broad range of accounts services to a range of Owner Managed businesses including property developers, fashion, creative industries and transport. With a rich history, this accountancy practice is proud that most of their business comes through word of mouth and referrals! They provide a great work culture with a generous benefit package including;
  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
  • Christmas party
  • Remote working
  • Core hours being either 8.00am - 4.30pm or 9.00am - 5.30pm
  • Free on-site parking for all staff

As an Assistant Accountant your responsibilities will include but are not limited to;
  • Monitoring a portfolio of clients operating cloud software, predominantly Xero
  • Assist new clients with software migration
  • Support clients and your team with advanced automation and third-party app integration
  • Preparation of management accounts and statutory accounts

The ideal Assistant Accountant candidate will; -
  • Have at least 3 years' UK general practice experience
  • Have a strong attention to detail
  • Have previous accounting experience
  • Be an advanced user of Xero and
  • Have a personable manner

There is genuine potential for this role to develop into Partnership in the future, with current Partners having trained with the firm, and one Partner who recently re-joined after spending some time at a Top 10 practice.
