Bookkeeper

Our client is looking for an experienced Bookkeeper to join their team based in four shops in Dalkeith, Easter Road, Fairmilehead and Musselburgh. The firm is modern and forward-thinking and is part of the largest network of accountants who focus specifically on small businesses and individual taxpayers. Technical knowledge is essential, and they prefer candidates who have experience working in a practice environment or at least working with software such as Receipt Bank and QuickBooks, but what really matters is your attitude and commitment.

The role will be based across all four shops, giving you plenty of variety and the chance to get to know the whole team and a broad range of clients. The working hours will be 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday, but the client is also willing to consider Part Time options.

  • Training clients on use of software

The firm is also in the process of moving some clients to Xero and whilst full training can be provided, experience with Xero software is desirable.

The ideal candidate will have worked in practice before and have at least two years' experience dealing with the above responsibilities. You must also have a strong customer service focus and be able to take meetings with clients as and when required (currently on Zoom). You should also have good people skills and a confident and friendly personality to help build strong relationships with the team and with clients.

You must have great attention to detail and be used to working on your own initiative whilst following established processes, with the ability to take ownership of your work and see things through to completion, including working unsupervised and to deadlines.

Ideally you will be qualified to at least AAT Level 3 or be working towards this, however if you feel you are qualified by experience we are happy to hear from you.

Our client is looking for an individual with a sense of ownership, a thirst for learning and with a growth mindset both personally and for the business.

In return, the business is offering:

  • Competitive salary which will be based on experience and qualification(s)
  • Total of 30 days holiday per year
  • Use of company pool car
  • Team away days and meals (when restrictions allow)
  • Career Progression Opportunities
  • Regular Training Opportunities

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Bookkeeper to join a dynamic firm of accountants which supports over 1,000 small business and individual clients in Edinburgh and the Lothians. All employees play a key role in the ongoing success and growth of the business. The closing date for applications is 26th March, with interviews taking place before the end of March.
