Based in the busy Accounts & Outsourcing Department, your role will be varied and include a mixture of bookkeeping (eg processing invoices, making payments, bank reconciliations, maintaining client ledgers, journal entries etc), VAT returns, company filings, plus receive training so you can assist with the preparation of management accounts and statutory accounts, as well as corporation tax returns. You will gain exposure to a wide range of clients from interesting sectors such as financial services, property, media, entertainment, technology, retail, fashion and renewable energy.
