I am delighted to assisting a well established firm of Chartered Accountants in their search for an experienced practice based Bookkeeper.

Your day to day duties as a Bookkeeper will include data entry of invoices, receipts, remittances, cheques etc in to Xero and various other accounting packages such as Sage 50 Accounts.

Other tasks you will be required to carry out on a daily basis are:

Processing balances

Processing sales and purchase invoices

Producing VAT and reports

Reconciliation of bank accounts & credit cards.

Dealing with client queries by email and telephone.

With our client, there is a culture of "all hands on deck" to help out with all types of general tasks including answering the telephone and also dealing with customer queries, so you will have a flexible approach and friendly personality to be able to fit with the current team.

It is imperative as a Bookkeeper that you have the following

General Bookkeeping knowledge to a high level

General PC knowledge including either Sage or Xero

This is not a junior role and requires independent, methodical self - disciplined. The successful candidate must be able to think on their feet, and mentally adapt quickly to the constant challenges of jigsaw building style bookkeeping. You must be able to work on your own initiative but good communication is also essential as you will be working in a team.

This role would suit a person who constantly loves a challenge, and who finds themselves changing bookkeeping roles frequently striving for more of a challenge in their next role.
