Bookkeeping Vacancy

Closes 24 July 2020

Calling all bookkeepers…

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

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 hundred 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 – 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 using 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 C to A*

• AAT Level 2 and 3 or equivalent. 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 our 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 to meet a deadline, but equally, there will be occasions when you will need to work independently 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 – 8.30 am – 4.30 pm
  • We offer a competitive salary, depending on experience.
  • As an employer who puts a huge focus on health & 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.
