About The Job

Job Title: Accounts Assistant
Contract: Permanent
Hours: Full time
Salary: £17,550 pa

We are looking for an accounts assistant to join our small team in the West End of Glasgow. Our firm is a family owned and managed accounting and consulting practice with a specialism in the third sector.

This role will involve the following main areas of work:

1. Responsibility for a range of clients’ cloud based accounting systems and remote bookkeeping from our office
2. Completion of month-end procedure including bank and balance sheet reconciliations
3. Preparation of management accounts under the guidance of a senior member of staff
4. Assistance with preparation of annual accounts for charities and limited companies
5. Office admin

You will be fully supported in all of these areas and will be taking over from an existing member of staff who is on a fixed term contract ending in August. You will receive a complete handover and work plan from the staff member.

You will be provided with full training to complete the above tasks and will have opportunities to develop and take on new pieces of work as you do so.

Longer term, we would consider sponsoring you through a professional qualification in accountancy.

The ideal candidate will be someone who would work well as part of a small team and who is keen to experience a broader range of client engagements and responsibilities than would be expected at a larger firm, while being fully supported by more senior staff.
