My client has an established and growing accountancy practice in Newcastle with a strong team to support with the delivery of both compliance and advisory services to their national client base.

With an ambitious outlook to continue with fast growth they are looking to appoint two Senior Accountants to join their existing team. Qualified either ACCA or ACA with experience working in in the accountancy practice sector we would like to receive interest from similarly driven and self-starting Accountants who will not only be able to deliver on the technical work, but more importantly fit within the practice culture.

Your day to day role will be fast paced, juggling various clients needs, assisting in the completion and final review of accounts, meeting with clients, attending networking events and integration in the local business community as well as mentoring your small team of staff. No two days will be the same, with each day bringing new challenges and better ways of working you will be encouraged to be creative and play an active part in the business performance and improvement of systems and procedures. You will embrace change and be comfortable with business transformation.

We are looking for a confident individual with particularly strong communication skills who enjoys client interaction, is commercial and thinks differently. Those with Big 4 experience are of interest and can be offered a position that will develop their all round accounting knowledge, especially useful for those trained in audit looking for a more commercial position. Equally those qualified, or even nearing the end of their studies from a smaller firm are welcomed, but must demonstrate their versatility to work differently to how they have before. We would also be keen to hear from qualified Accountants who have since left practice to join Industry and are keen to return and are able to bring with them knowledge and experience of working in a commercial setting. My client embraces modern technology and thus all applicants must be very confident with the use of this.

Whilst there will be plenty of hard work, the rewards are there, both socially in the means of the environment you will work in, alongside plenty of social invitations. The ability to achieve promotion is readily available for those who achieve, of which reward comes with that. Flexible hours and the ability to work from home demonstrate the type of culture you will be joining: work hard, play hard.
