Working exclusively with Prince Personnel, our Shrewsbury client is a real success story. They are part of a group and have a turnover in excess of GBP60million. This is a newly created role owing to business growth. You will be reporting into the Accountant, working in a small and stable team of 5 within finance.

The business has a down to earth and relaxed culture, in spite of their profitability and the scale of the operation, and this is an ideal role for someone looking to settle within a business, where you will have exposure to a range of different tasks.

Duties will include:

• Working closely with two clerks, and covering aspects of purchase ledger and payroll in their absence/during peak periods
• Working closely with the accountant to produce monthly management accounts, and statutory accounts
• Producing VAT returns
• Managing cash flow
• Intercompany accounts
• Dealing with applications and retentions
• Completing payment runs
• Bank reconciliations
• Journal entries
• Prepayments and accruals
• Processing expenses
• Completing credit card analysis

The ideal applicant for this role will be confident producing accounts to trial balance stage. It would be highly advantageous if you have experience of the construction industry, CIS scheme, dealing with subcontractors (as this is 90% of their business), Sage and completing payroll, although this experience is not essential. This is a super varied role but owing to the structure of the department there is little opportunity for progression within, unless someone leaves which is not likely. Therefore the business is not offering study support, and they are welcoming applications from QBE/AAT qualified applicants.

We will carefully consider your details and advise you if we're able to progress with your application within 72 hours. If you do not hear from us within this time your details won't be retained. So, if you're not successful on this occasion, do continue to respond to future roles we advertise. In the meantime, all good wishes and continued success with your search for employment.
