Senior Practice Accountant

TaxAssist Accountants are the largest network of accountants who focus their accountancy skills specifically on small businesses and taxpayers needing a tax return in the UK. We specialise in providing accountancy services, tax returns, payroll, bookkeeping, tax savings and tax advice to small businesses and individuals.

We are looking for an A+ member of staff to join a team of 10 people at our busy Corstorphine and Slateford offices.

Our new Accountant will lead and provide support to a team of accountants and bookkeepers – the team is responsible for delivering the bread and butter of our business; everything from complicated sets of limited company accounts to self-assessment tax returns, VAT returns, payroll… and the many other things we deliver.

The office environment is busy, fast paced, fun, sometimes pressured but always focussed on our customers.

As a business we are constantly striving to deliver the very best in customer service.  We are deadline driven, have lots and lots of clients and are moving from the traditional view of an accountant to a tech driven company offering business advice and support.

The team is a dedicated bunch, tight knit and enjoy the occasional night out!  We continue to grow so are constantly on the lookout for like-minded people to join us.

So, what are we looking for in our new Accountant?

Of course, we’re looking for the obvious: we need someone who has worked in practice in a similar role and is either ACCA, ICAS qualified or equivalent.  Our Accountant must be able to apply that knowledge in a practical sense too, especially with our customers who are predominantly smaller businesses.  Our accountant must be accurate and have attention to detail.  They must be analytical and be able to evaluate a given situation, whether relating to a customer or a colleague.

Beyond the obvious, we’re looking for something more in our new Accountant.

We are a fast growing practice with big plans and we use digital solutions to make our processes slick and to keep our offices as paper free as possible.  We need an Accountant who is tech savvy and comfortable working in the digital world.

We need someone who can work with their colleagues, coaching them to develop knowledge and understanding.  They need to be a motivator and want to lead a team of people to deliver A+ results for our customer group.

Finally, our Accountant will be energetic and enthusiastic.  They will be focussed on A+ delivery, be optimistic and want to push their career in accountancy by developing their skills and knowledge further.

In return we offer an excellent salary and package, flexibility in working ours, a comfortable and informal environment to work in and the opportunity to grow and develop beyond simply ‘working for’ an accountancy practice.

So, to summarise.

The role is busy... essentially our new Accountant will be looking after the technical needs of our ever growing customer base whilst while leading, developing and nurturing a team of hard working and dedicated accountants and bookkeepers.

Please click the APPLY button and follow our client’s online application process. Our client is looking to fill this role as quickly as possible and so will be running interviews over the next couple of weeks.
