Assistant Accountant

Job description

This is a rare opportunity for an experienced Assistant Accountant to join a sought-after and well-known business who can offer a clear progression path and the opportunity to gain exposure to the full management accounts process within a large, successful business, not to mention brilliant perks!

Based on the outskirts of Leeds, the business have experienced a lot of change and development over recent years and are currently in the process of implementing a new finance system, so it's a great time to join them whilst they have plenty of new projects on the go.

They experience low turnover, which says a lot about the business as a whole, and they are looking for someone to develop, so whilst experience of accruals, prepayments, journals and balance sheet reconciliations is a must, experience beyond this can be taught.

An example of some of the duties that the successful candidate will be responsible for:-

  • Supporting in the preparation of timely and accurate monthly management accounts.
  • Producing accruals, prepayments and journals.
  • Assisting with cashflow forecasting.
  • Reconciling bank statements and identifying and logging fixed assets.
  • Assisting with nominal ledger including processing journals and month-end adjustments.
  • Performing balance sheet reconciliations and VAT returns.


A few of the benefits:-

  • Hybrid working
  • On-site gym, offering weekly fitness classes
  • In-house canteen offering a great selection of cold and hot meals, at a subsidised rate
