I am currently working with a rapidly growing business with two senior members of staff and two accounts assistants. They have a great working culture but also someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously.

  • Reconciling pension creditors and uploading pensions for PAYE reconciliation and HMRC payments.
  • Handling attachment reconciliations and payments.
  • Auto-enrolling employees and maintaining the pension portal for new hires and leavers.
  • Maintaining the weekly payroll summary
  • Preparing and posting the weekly wages accrual journal at month-end.
  • Raising sales invoices.
  • Performing bank postings and reconciliations.
  • Posting and reconciling credit card transactions.
  • Posting and reconciling petty cash.
  • Preparing VAT returns, reconciling with Sage, reviewing percentages, and checking for errors before submission and payment.
  • Providing ad hoc reporting and general finance support.


  • Familiarity with accounting software packages.
  • Strong attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Effective communication skills.
