Job Description Flexibility, freedom and responsibility. Flexibility to start and finish at times that will integrate with your life. Freedom to implement change, that will help you and the business. Responsibility as "the book" for financial management, starts and ends, with you. You will have the flexibility to shape your own full-time working day. You might want to start and leave early, or you may prefer a later arrival and finish. This job might suit someone with commitments beyond work: maybe a "school run", children or grandchildren, or even a fitness class. Maybe that's one of the reasons why many of their employees have been with the Company for over 10 of the 20 years it's been established - they feel appreciated. You'll enjoy the freedom to make improvements. This business is changing, and you'll embrace and drive that change, with the support of the MD. It continues to grow, from £1m turnover two years ago, to forecasting to reach £2m this year. You'll develop the financial management processes and recommend commercial strategies to help the business achieve further sustained growth. They've recently implemented Xero, moving from Sage, and will soon roll out a new project and resource management system, a significant investment used by the majority of their industry's leading firms, that will help to manage the business through automation. You'll integrate the new system with Xero and develop a dashboard of financial key performance indicators, to allow you to influence the decisions you'll make as part of the Senior Management Team. You're an Accountant. You may be qualified, or part-qualified and perhaps no longer studying. First and foremost though, you're a good Bookkeeper. You'll be in the only person in the accounts department and you'll relish that responsibility and enjoy being hands-on. To make your life easier, you'll automate invoicing and billing (through a direct debit system) and credit control, so that the day-to-day bookkeeping takes care of itself, allowing you to focus on the bigger picture.
