We are looking to recruit a book keeper – POSITION NOW FILLED


Due to increasing demand from our clients we are looking to recruit a book keeper. Below is the Job Specification with its key requirements.

If you believe you have the experience, knowledge and skills required then I would be delighted to receive your CV as a first step.

If you have had experience in working in an accountancy practice that would be ideal but not essential.  Experience is everything in this vacancy.  We want someone who can hit the ground running (quickly and easily) and can use accountancy software such as Sage and Xero.

Key Requirements:

(1)  Working Knowledge of Sage Line 50 and Xero Accounting Software

  • – Should fully understand how Sage works.
  • – Be competent at book-keeping on Sage and Xero.
  • – A basic knowledge of double entry book keeping would be extremely helpful.

(2)  Working Knowledge and use of Excel – emphasis is on working knowledge. Does not need to be a wizard.

(3)  Good experience of office admin from an accounting point of view.  Having experience of general practice would be ideal. Must be good with people – both clients and staff.  We are a people business.

(4)  Qualifications: Experience will be everything; other qualifications such as Level 4 AAT would be a bonus. We are looking for someone who can do the job. Not someone who will need training and supporting.

(5)  A basic knowledge of tax within accounts – this only refers to a knowledge of VAT

(6)  Payroll – a basic knowledge of payroll within book keeping would be useful

(7)  Own transport – this would be helpful as you may be needed to travel to clients premises.

(8)  Availability

  • – Full time or part time
  • – Ideally 5 days per week
  • – But if could only be available part time because of school drop off and pick up for example – that would be more than ok.
