Job Description

We are supporting our client an Accountancy Practice based in Swanley with the recruitment of an Accounts Assistant.  The role will require you to manage all accounting requirements for owner managed businesses which will combine year end accounts preparation, management accounts and basic tax returns and corporation tax computations.

This requires the ability to multi-task, be well organised and an enjoyment of working in this type of environment.

As a medium firm every appointment is crucial to the continuing success of the firm and the successful applicant will be given the tools to advance their career.

The requirements in summary:
