Accounts Manager

Great Part-time opportunity to join our client in lovely surroundings near Sevenoaks.

Working Part-time ( 15-20 hours per week) you will be supporting a specialist lender and their small team with all the day to day bookkeeping and accounting and lending accounting activities as they look to continue their growth trajectory.

Ideally, you will bring experience from a Financial Services business and be AAT or QBE qualified. They will also welcome candidates who have worked within a similar small business where the need to be flexible and collaborative with all levels of the business is key.

Main accounting duties will sit in support of the FC and so an understanding and use of Sage and Excel are key. In relation to lending accounting, knowledge of Brightoffice or a similar debt management CRM would also be advantageous but not essential.

This is an ambitious business and the successful candidate would also be working with the leadership team to review and improve the existing accounting and finance procedures in the business to best support the expected growth of the business.
