This brand-new Company Accountant role has been brought about by the change in ownership of a long standing owner managed business with a turnover of £7 million. The company has been bought by a group , which is building a global presence and which owns another  company in the UK based near Manchester and which is of a similar size. The new owners now want to bring in a qualified accountant with experience of working in SME’s to bring about the following changes:
  • Changing the quarterly management accounts to monthly using Sage 50 Cloud
  • Overseeing and mentoring 3 staff and possibly restructuring their workload if needed
  • Speeding up the reporting process by introducing new systems and processes as needed
  • Producing the accounts for both the Cambridge and Manchester offices
  • Introducing any analysis or breakdown of figures that may be useful to the local management
  • Assisting with budgeting and forecasting
  • Overseeing the accounts production in the Cambridge office, looking at the systems and procedures there
  • Assisting in the year end and audit process though to completion of statutory accounts
  • Hands on accounting when needed including VAT, payroll, sales invoicing etc
This Company Accountant role will require a qualified accountant who is both hands on in their accounting but can also see the bigger picture. You must have the ability to communicate clearly with people at all levels throughout the business and be self motivated and a strong team player. Experience of Sage 50 Cloud would also be useful.

This Company Accountant role will really allow you to make a difference and  offers hybrid working, 25 days' holiday, free parking and a pension scheme. Over time there is the possibility of this Company Accountant role developing into that of FD.
