Financial Accountant - Leicestershire - £150-180 per day Ltd

Cherry Professional are recruiting a Financial Accountant for a vibrant tech firm, based in Leicestershire, on a temp-to-perm basis. Ideally, they would like someone who can start in early-June to enable a short handover period. They expect the role to become permanent within 3 months with a salary of £35,000-40,000 and will only consider applicants who wish to take up a permeant role.

Want to hear more about the company?

Whilst still relatively small, the business boasts an impressive client base and partners with industry leaders. They have grown at an impressive rate over the last few years, both through increase in sales and acquisitions. Having recently appointed a Sales Director with significant sector experience, they now have ambitions plans to further increase turnover through organic growth. The culture is informal and the finance team work highly collaboratively, making this a great opportunity for someone to gain further exposure and develop their skills.

What about the role itself?

Joining a team of 6 in finance and reporting into the Group Finance Manager, you will be responsible for all aspects of financial accounting, including period-end duties, accruals & prepayments, processing financial accounting journals and Tax. There will also be plenty of opportunity to get stuck into ad-hoc projects. The business is highly transactional, meaning that you may be required to assist with AP & AR, especially for the first couple of months, whilst they continue to integrate a newly acquired business.

Are you the right fit?

Ideally, we are looking for a Qualified Accountant (ACCA, ACA or CIMA), but can also consider those who are at the latter stages of their qualification or Qualified By Experience. You must have had at least 1 years' experience in a similar role and preferably you will have been involved in at least 1 audit cycle. Other than that, you must be a team player with a strong work ethic, who is flexible, eager to learn and willing to take on additional tasks. Ideally you will be able to start no later than early-July to enable a handover period.
