Bookkeeper/ Financial Controller (Competitive Salary, to be discussed) is now needed for a high profile company based in Harrogate.
Our client uses Pegasus Opera 3 in a fully integrated way to manage all aspects of the business, from CRM to scheduling, warehousing to payroll and of course accounting. The current book keeper works part time and does not have sufficient in depth knowledge of Pegasus to provide the desired outcomes our client requires for the business. So they are specifically looking for a Bookkeeper/ Financial Controller who has worked with Pegasus and is fully conversant with its workings and how to manipulate it to produce accurate and meaningful data.
Someone who meets the criteria could manage the role part time, but also recognise Pegasus users are thin on the ground and so may have to recruit someone who does not meet all of the criteria but who can work full time and as a consequence develop a knowledge of the software sufficiently to produce the outcomes they need.
Most of the front end financial inputting is done by other members of the team such as sales invoicing and sales ledger, purchase orders & payroll. So the role of bookkeeper is primarily to check the integrity of all inputted data, run the appropriate controls, and reconciliations and produce financial reports, vat returns cash flow forecasts etc.
In addition, because they are a relatively small company that is customer lead, there are general office duties everyone undertakes such as taking phone calls, scheduling jobs, etc.
This Bookkeeper/ Financial Controller position is permanent and as described part time 20-30 hours or possibly full time. Salary has not yet been decided at this stage but it will be in line with the industry standard. My client is also happy to consider candidates who are either wanting employment or are self-employed.
Our clients staff are their most important asset and they aim to make everyone’s time with them as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible. As part of their team, the Bookkeeper/ Financial Controller will meet new challenges every day and will have the opportunity to grow as the company grows. They work hard, but derive a high level of personal pride and satisfaction from the service they provide.
If you are an experienced Bookkeeper/ Financial Controller and meet the criteria above, please apply today!
