Senior Bookkeeper

About the role

We’re looking for a meticulous, organised and confident bookkeeper to join our team and help us deliver first-class finance and admin support to our clients, while also keeping our own business processes on track.

In this role you’ll take the burden of bookkeeping away from our clients and will get them excited about getting their financial data into shape, so they can use it to make decisions about their business.

We’re a small team right now and this role is central to our plans for growth, so for the right person we can be flexible on hours and working arrangements.

You’ll be responsible for…

·        Keeping our clients’ Xero accounts up-to-date so they can always see how the business is doing

·        Preparing VAT returns

·        Putting in place financial processes and systems within start-up and scale-up businesses.

·        Supporting clients with training and troubleshooting with financial systems, processes and less complex accounting questions

·        Working with Practice colleagues to make sure month-end / quarter-end / year-end close processes are on time and enable us to produce the very highest standard of analysis.

·        Thinking creatively and advising our clients on any problems they might hit.

·        Provide guidance and support to colleagues as required.

·        Horizon scanning – stay ahead of changes to tax legislation and advise pro-actively as to the impact on our client portfolio

·        Help develop the financial processes and controls within Practice.

You should apply if…

·        You have a genuine interest in the creative industries

·        You have a track record of building relationships and solving problems

·        You are a fully qualified bookkeeper or accountant with a recognised professional body

·        You have extensive experience of working with Xero and love working with new technologies

·        You have a great eye for detail, but can always see the big picture

·        You can communicate complicated financial concepts and processes to people from a non-finance background with empathy and clarity.

  • You are eager to work in a growing business and want to work in a fresh, flexible, and supportive environment


Benefits of working at Practice

·        Take a leading role in the growth and direction of our business

·        Flexible working arrangements come as standard – our core hours are 10am to 4pm, but there’s no fixed start of end time each day

·        We’re a remote team right now, but we’ll make you feel welcome with a series of online and in-person events

·        Workplace pension with NEST

·        Learning and development budget

·        25 day holiday allowance, plus bank holidays (pro rata)

Interview process

Our hiring process will consist of 2 rounds – a short 30 minute Zoom conversation in which we’ll get to know a little more about you and a longer interview in which we’ll set a short exercise.

If possible, we’d like to conduct the 2nd round interviews in person – but we will of course make adjustments where this is not possible or practical.
