London accountant required

We're hiring!

After continued growth we're looking for an accountant to manage a portfolio with a variety of clients.

This role is for either a currently part qualified accountant, or someone with non accounting work history that wants to get into the industry

We live by 5 key values, which are:

1 We are passionate about helping our clients

2 We never forget to have fun and enjoy ourselves 

3 We are open and honest

4 We have a can do, nothings gonna stop us attitude

5 We never want to stop improving ourselves or the world we live in

Key skills
- Communication is critical, as you be client facing from day one. 
- Time and deadline management. Running a portfolio will give you a lot of freedom and responsibility so being able to manage your time is also very important 
- Actually care about delivering the best service for our clients and want to always improve (you'd be amazed how many accountants don't live by this value)

Knowledge of Xero is useful but not essential. You'll also be using a decent amount of apps in the cloud eco space. 

There is the need to come into the London office on occasion, but the role can be very flexible with remote working on the whole if wanted.

Competitive, very much dependant on your current level of experience

About the author

Hi I’m Stuart and I head up our Manchester office after previously overseeing the UK cloud accounting roll out at a top 20 accounting firm. 

I’ve been an accountant for the last 15 years, but my life changed 5 years ago when I went to Xerocon for the first time and was blown away by what Xero and the cloud apps could do for my clients.

Since then I’ve been focused on using cloud technology to help business owners achieve more and have moved over 1,000 businesses to Xero. Only 2 of those have been failures, which people always ask about but nobody ever asked about the 998+!

I also work with a wide variety of the cloud apps in the ecosystem, so even if you’re already on Xero, I can often add more functionality, whether debt chasing apps, cashflow forecasting or point of sale systems I’m happy to help.

I tend to work with businesses that:

-Have turnover between £500k and £5 million 

-Want to grow and want to see their accountant more than once a year

-Want to make the most of tech to automate the way the work and improve efficiencies

I absolutely love what I do and have been so close to getting a Xero tattoo on multiple occasions. Outside or work I love a good board game (too nerdy?) and do a fair bit of running although I’m not as fast as I used to be!
