The Opportunity

Are you a versatile Accountant who enjoys working in practice?  Are you looking to join a small independent firm where you will have flexibility and be truly valued? Are you potentially looking for the route to equity partnership at some stage in the future?

We are delighted to be working with a well-regarded and trusted small firm based near Belper in beautiful Derbyshire.  It’s a firm with a superb track record and a very strong reputation for quality.

They are growing steadily (as a result of their excellent service leading to significant amounts of referral and recommendation).  Your role is to directly support the Partner in managing the needs of a really broad and interesting portfolio of clients. 

You’ll also be supporting in the development and training of less experienced colleagues (semi seniors and trainees). 

It’s a close knit small but ambitious firm (7 employees currently) and you’ll enjoy being part of the fabric of future success and growth. 

It’s also a firm with high integrity and honesty – a business where you’ll be sincerely valued and respected.  You’ll enjoy flexibility and autonomy and a chance to have a sensible work life balance. 

You’ll have chance to work closely with your clients – it’s a practice that has great relationships with the business owners they support and you’ll be given the time, freedom and autonomy to really get to know the clients you are helping.    

The remit is all encompassing – accounts finalization, personal and corp tax, review and advice to clients…..

You’ll be someone who wants to commit to a small, friendly and professional firm for the years to come.  There is scope for you to step into a partner role and have potential equity down the line if that is something of interest to you. 

An enjoyable place to work, great clients, broad role, no micromanagement, sensible work life balance…. A place where you will be genuinely valued. 

You need;

  • Previous experience of a varied role within a firm of accountants. 
  • Good IT knowledge (you will ideally have used a range of accounting software). 
  • Approachable, open and honest communication skills.
  • Ability to listen to client needs and work in partnership to solve their problems. 
  • Experience of accounts prep and corp/personal tax.
