Careers: Senior Accountant

08 Dec 2015

Accounts and Legal is a multi-disciplinary consultancy firm on a mission to help small businesses grow.

We're a new entrepreneurial business with an impressive track record of growth. In the three years that we have been established, we've made a real impact in the small business community in London, now achieving more than 100 inbound client leads per month.

As a result of this growth, we're now looking to grow our senior team by appointing a charismatic Senior Accountant with excellent interpersonal and technical skills.

In particular, we're looking for a candidate with a few years post qualification experience, a natural aptitude for managing clients and the ability to lead a small team of juniors.

About the author

Originally graduating with a degree in geography from Edinburgh University, Keir claims that he was then tricked into becoming an accountant by one of the UK's top 5 accountancy practices.The deception extended to the usual training in audit and associated activities.

Keir subsequently worked in a number of advisory roles with clients including in the energy trading, pharmaceuticals and financial services sectors.

He loves working at Accounts & Legal because of the variety of work and clients, the excellent team ethos and morale, the importance placed on genuinely helping and being useful for clients and because he believes what he does matters to clients and helps the firm.

Keir's primary role is to ensure that new clients with complex businesses or needs are on-boarded in the best way and he is a "trouble shooter" both for clients and where complex issues arise internally. He also helps the accounting teams strive to improve what we do for clients, whether processes or services.

When not debiting or crediting, Keir has a penchant for fixing old buildings, skiing, surfing and cycling.
