Finance Assistant (Financial Accounting Team)
You will support one of our Financial Accountants in undertaking accounting, tax and other related tasks, including month-end procedures and annual statutory accounts. You will be involved in the preparation of tax and other statutory returns, fixed asset accounting, as well as providing general support to the team.
We need you to work independently to complete detailed tasks accurately and to strict deadlines, as well as resolving related queries. You must be able to perform reconciliations, maintain accounting records, and prepare journals, basic accounts and returns.
Good communication skills and IT skills - including strong Excel skills and the ability to work with computerised accounting packages – are essential and you must also demonstrate a sound understanding of accounting principles and a basic knowledge of VAT.
You will be studying for the Accounting Technician qualification, already be qualified at this level, or be embarking on the early stages of a professional qualification. Alternatively, you may have a good academic record and experience which demonstrates equivalent skills and ability.
We commit to actively developing you and offer excellent benefits including a 34.5 week (with an early finish on Friday), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous annual leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.
