Working for an SME gives you the opportunity to get involved in all sorts of things and this is no different in an accounts role within a smaller business.

My client has been based in the local area for many years but this longevity doesn't mean that they rest on their laurels, they're in an exciting market and it's continuing to grow.

This role will report to the Financial Controller and your duties will include;

  • Assisting with the preparation of monthly management accounts

  • Assisting with annual budgeting

  • Stock purchasing, logistics, recording of receipt

  • Prepayments and accruals

  • Preparing and posting journals for all accounting transactions using Sage

  • Bank reconciliations

  • Processing and management business mileage

  • Preparing bank payments and preparing the related checks and support

  • Preparing draft financial statement documents

  • Actively organising and maintaining stock including forecasts

  • VAT returns

  • Overseeing credit control

  • Monthly & year-end analysis

  • Posting sales receipts

  • Finalising monthly supplier run

Working in a small team, this position will suit someone who is a team player and ideally has experience working across a few businesses.

Experience of Sage is ideal although training will be given but a strong working knowledge of Excel is essential.

This is a rare opportunity for someone to join a lovely business in a niche sector but you must have your own transport due to its rural location.
