A new opportunity has arisen for an experienced, part qualified Management Accountant to join the Northampton head office of this well established and well respected firm of Solicitors.

Working in compliance to Solicitors Accounts Rules and with day to day interaction with legal cashiers, you will need to have previous experience within the legal profession and be looking for a progressive move within the profession, where you can continue to build a long term career.   Reporting to the Finance Director, your responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:

  • Month end management accounts tasks and preparation of elements of the finance pack
  • Assisting with preparation of budget packs and year end statutory accounts
  • Assisting with financial accounting duties including management of the fixed asset register, posting of journals, accruals and prepayments.

  • Supporting the Legal Cashiers within the accounts team during busy periods
  • Assisting with ad hoc duties and projects, including VAT support, accounts software updates and process/system reviews

The successful candidate will be studying towards, or have recently completed, a recognised accounting qualification and must have extensive payroll knowledge as well as an accomplished background in the completion of management accounts. You will be detail orientated and an effective communicator, with an analytical eye and mind-set so that you can investigate issues and anomalies effectively.

We are looking for a self-motivated team player with a ‘can do’ proactive attitude who is seeking a largely autonomous role, albeit working closely with the Finance Director on a day to day basis.

If this sounds like you , we would be very pleased to receive your CV as soon as possible so we can discuss this opportunity in more detail
