As part of our continuing growth we have an opportunity for a qualified accountant (ACA or ACCA) to join our Technical Accounts team in the role of Technical Accounting Senior.
The successful client will be involved in helping clients deal with more complicated transactions and accounting, such as business acquisitions and disposals, that they don’t see on a day to day basis.
The team’s role is to help clients deal with their auditors, with areas they aren’t familiar with and where there may be more than one accounting answer.
This is a York or Leeds based role, however, as a result of the pandemic we are adopting a hybrid way of working with staff currently expected to be office based 2 days per week and 3 days from home, although our aim is to enable new starters to be office based 5 days per week whilst they are training, getting to know the team etc.
