Our Shrewsbury client is a reputable regional chartered accountancy practice who is recruiting for a capable Bookkeeper to join their team of 4, in a permanent job role.

You will be a committed and personable bookkeeper who is able to complete bookkeeping tasks for a portfolio of clients including limited companies, sole traders and partnerships. Your job will be to act as a member of the clients' businesses, to join them on a monthly basis to carry out their bookkeeping. You will be part of the fabric of their company and will endeavour to support and guide them on their accounting; this will require flexibility from you, as you will need to be fluid with start and finish times according to the clients' needs, but will typically work a 37.5 hour week, gaining time back in lieu if needed.

Your role will be extremely varied and typical duties will include:

• Control of sales and purchase ledger
• Supporting with processing small staff payrolls
• Credit control on behalf of the client - recording activity and liaising with 3rd party collection agencies for any bad debt
• Preparation of monthly accounts including prepayments and accruals, journal posting and producing VAT returns
• Maintaining the cashbook
• Guiding clients and acting as an advisor e.g. explaining the functionality of Sage

You will be a proficient bookkeeper, with demonstrable experience working at a similar level. Ideally you will possess the AAT qualification; however our client will consider QBE applicants. You will be an experienced user of Sage; experience of cloud-accounting software/ QuickBooks would be beneficial but is not essential. This is a business with a stable working environment, where they have a low turnover, a loyal client base, and pride themselves on promoting a good working culture. Based in modern offices, they are a business who really look after their staff, shown not only through their excellent retention but also evidenced in their benefits package. Benefits from our client will include a holiday entitlement which rises incrementally to 33 days (including stats), annual bonus based on profitability (divided equally regardless of seniority), life assurance, pension and a health plan.
