About us

Mitch Consulting is a niche firm of chartered accountants providing support for technology start-ups.

We currently have 26 clients including Yoyo Wallet (mobile payment, loyalty and customer engagement platform), Weaveworks (Docker product for developers), Fyxer (virtual executive assistants) and Open Ocean (Finnish tech fund). We have a strong pipeline of potential new clients and consequently now need to increase capacity.

Our services benefit technology start-up companies who are looking for a full service external accounting service provider but are not yet ready to recruit a full-time CFO. We bridge the gap by effectively providing the service normally expected from a CFO plus a full Finance department but scaled down for the client’s needs.

We currently have 9 staff, some of which work part-time (5 full-time equivalents)

This position would need to work some of the time from our Chelmsford home office but remote working is also accommodated.

What’s it like working with us?

We work hard but in a friendly atmosphere. The companies we deal with are demanding, very tech savvy and constantly changing.

We strive to be paper free as far as possible. Nearly all the software we use is in the Cloud (we provide full training so don’t worry if you haven’t worked in this way before).

Job profile

The work would involve supporting clients in the following areas:

  • Year end statutory accounts
  • Corporation tax computations
  • VAT returns
  • Payroll/pensions
  • Bookkeeping (Xero)
  • Bank reconciliations
  • Accounts Payable invoice processing
  • Billing

What qualifications/experience do you need?

The minimum is some kind of accounting qualification, ACA/ACCA/CIMA preferred.

Ideally you will have had 2 years + experience supporting SMEs with accounting or bookkeeping services.

Person profile

This role would suit the kind of person who is open to new ideas, flexible and comfortable working in a fast-moving environment. The ability to juggle several balls in the air at the same time is essential (juggling is part of the interview process!)
