Careers: Apprentice Accountant

09 Sep 2013

We are looking for an enthusiastic apprentice accountant to join our growing Brighton office. 

The key focus of this role will be in the preparation of accounting records. This will include posting data to our accounting software, classifying these transactions to the correct nominal and conducting bank reconciliations, all to a standard that is suitable for manager level review.

The work will be varied and interesting as many of our clients require management accounts and VAT returns. In many cases we also act as our clients' finance department by taking responsibility for issuing invoices, paying bills and chasing trade debtors. This means that every member of our accounts team has high levels of client contact and broad exposure to our clients' businesses.

Working alongside a qualified accounts manager you will have the opportunity to learn on the job while studying for the AAT qualification.

We support career progression of our staff by offering study benefits including AAT, ACCA, ACA or CIMA programmes and cover the cost of exams and provide paid study leave on an annual basis.
