Job Description

Volt is partnering with a leading brand in Leatherhead, Surrey (Junction 9 of the M25), seeking to hire an Assistant Accountant on a temp-to-perm basis.

This is an initial 6-month fixed term contract, with the possibility of it being made permanent in the future. Salary: £28,000 - £32,000 depending on experience.

This is an excellent opportunity for an all-round Assistant Accountant to join the European operations of a global business where you'll work closely with the European Finance Manager on all manner of day-to-day finance and accounting tasks.

Your role:

As the Assistant Accountant, you will be responsible for preparing monthly balance sheet reconciliations including accruals and prepayments, accounts payable & receivable, processing inter-company invoices, fixed assets, compliance and reporting including tax returns, travel expenditure analysis, audit working paper preparation and analysis, VAT returns and adhoc duties as requested by the European Finance Manager.

Your skills and experience:

You will have gained all-round accounting experience either in industry, practice or a mixture of both with knowledge of generally accepted accounting procedures. You will know how to prepare balance sheet reconciliations and be happy processing accounts payable & receivable invoices. Whilst an accounting qualification such as AAT would be beneficial, it is not a requirement.

Knowledge of SAP would be an advantage.

If you like the sound of this role and you'd like to learn more, please contact Andy Lilliman at Volt on 07979 703 959 or email me:

Alternatively, please apply with your CV.
