Semi Senior Accountant

We have a fantastic full time position available for an enthusiastic individual to join our hard working and friendly team. You will have excellent communication skills as great client relationships are essential to the service that we offer at Sheards.

You will have at least 3 years experience in an accountancy practice, and seek a role that will give you your own portfolio of business clients. You will provide a full range of accounting and tax services to your clients.

The position would be a perfect fit if you are an AAT qualified individual looking to progress your career. We would also consider offering a training contract with ICAEW or ACCA, meaning the role would be ideal for an AAT qualified person looking to progress further with your studies.

The role will specifically involve the preparation of accounts and tax returns for small to medium sized businesses and their owners. We use Iris practice software, so existing knowledge of Iris would be useful, although not essential.

The day-to-day responsibilities for the role include:

  • Preparation of financial statements for small and medium sized limited companies, sole traders and partnerships
  • Corporation tax calculations and submissions
  • Preparation of management accounts
  • Self Assessment tax returns
  • Other tax compliance, such as P11D's
  • Liasing with staff and clients

We would expect candidates to have good knowledge and experience of cloud based book-keeping packages. The firm has for some time offered cloud based solutions to clients, and we are partners with both Quick Books and Kashflow as we ensure that we give clients innovative solutions for their accounting function.
