Calling all bookkeepers…….

We are looking for a one of a kind, Bookkeeping Guru to join our team.

Whyfield is a well-established accountancy firm based in Threemilestone, which is just outside of Truro.  We offer a huge range of support to businesses of all sizes including sole-traders, partnerships and limited companies.  The turnover of these businesses can range from several hundreds of pounds to several millions of pounds.

Whilst working alongside our fantastic team of friendly, enthusiastic and ambitious professionals, you will have the opportunity to develop your practical, technical and personal skills by carrying out a wide variety of tasks including:

  • Bookkeeping, which involves reviewing and reconciling business transactions, so that clients can benefit from the ability to budget, forecast and plan for the future.
  • Payroll including Pension Auto Enrolment
  • VAT calculations and returns
  • Using software, such as Xero, QuickBooks, Sage, Freeagent and Microsoft Excel
  • Attending and contributing to team meetings
  • Engaging in regular communication with internal and external stakeholders by using the telephone, email and face-to-face meetings
  • Maintaining an excellent relationship with clients by keeping them up to date on the financial health of their business and offering helpful advice

At Whyfield, we believe in giving you responsibility right from the start.  You will be engaging with clients and business owners from day one and you will also have the opportunity to work independently and manage your own portfolio of clients.

Qualifications Required:

  • 5 GCSEs, including Maths and English, at grades A* to C
  • It would be great if you have completed your AAT Level 2 and 3 or equivalent but this is not essential and qualified by experience will be considered.
  • The most important thing, however, is that you are keen to thrive in a career in bookkeeping, working directly with clients and developing your skills

Skills Required:

  • We aren’t just on the lookout for someone with a long list of technical skills, we want to hear from a super-friendly, approachable person that is willing to go the extra mile to offer a top quality service to clients
  • It is important that you hold the ability to work well independently and as part of a team. You will often need to work with other team members in order to meet a deadline, but equally, there will be occasions when you will need to work independently in order to complete a task

Other important information

  • We have plenty of free car parking on site and are only a 5-minute walk from several bus routes.
  • Our working week is Monday to Friday – 8.30am – 4.30pm
  • We offer a competitive salary depending on experience.
  • As an employer who puts a huge focus on heath & wellbeing in the workplace, we provide a whole lot more than the ‘norm’ to improve the welfare of our staff…..think herbal teas, fruit boxes, lunchtime walks, healthy eating sessions and mental health training.
  • Other benefits include occasional company funded social events and the opportunity to attend a variety of fun networking events in the local area.

WANTED – Dynamic Digital Accountant


We know these unicorns exist because we have plenty of them here already!   

We set up when digital started to replace analogue accounting in 2014 so we’re really plugged into today’s cloud accounting systems. All of our clients are Making Tax Digital compliant (or very nearly there) so they are used getting instant performance data from our award-winning team who are all Xero and QuickBooks certified.

Don’t get us wrong; it’s not all stats and screens here. Teamwork is hugely important and commitment to growth plays a massive part too.  Every single member of our team has a bespoke training plan based on where they want to take their career rather than something we impose.  They’re all given time each week for CPD and we pay for all of their membership fees as well as supporting financially the progression of studies. Free onsite parking, working hours to beat the 5pm rush and competitive pay are also givens at Whyfield.

Our new mythical creature will be AAT qualified and we’d prefer practice experience but we’ll bend the rules for the right person!  After all, dynamism scores highest.

Fit the bill?
