My client is an established market leader in arts education resources with a team comprising a range of experts with high level professional experience in theatre, education and technology. Due to continued investment, they are currently seeking an Assistant Accountant to join their growing team on a permanent basis. This is varied role which will offer exposure to all aspects of accounting and would suit a proactive individual who is looking to grow their career as the business expands. Based in the city you will be;

  • Responsible for parts of the US, UK and Group month end processes and management accounts
  • Semi-monthly payroll for the US company and assisting with monthly UK company payroll
  • VAT and VAT MOSS reporting
  • Accruals and prepayments
  • Maintenance of the fixed assets register
  • Aged debtors reporting
  • Credit control and writing demand for payment letters where necessary
  • Replying to customer finance queries
  • Assisting sales team with administrative tasks such as vendor registrations
  • Reconciliations (for example to ensure all invoicing has been completed per our sales database)
  • Ad hoc finance requests as needed

You will be an aspirational individual but also happy to be hands-on as the team, although growing, is fairly small and close knit. You will be able to adapt within a fast-paced environment and be happy to take ownership of many of the finance requirements across their UK and US companies.

You will also need to have strong excel skills to v-lookup and pivot table level and have an understanding of the nature of a small finance team within the context of a growing business. An interest in the arts, theatre or education would be a definite plus.

Should this role be of interest, please submit your CV for consideration as soon as possible.
