Apply for this job

If you have solid accounts office experience supporting a small construction business and have knowledge of both reverse charge VAT and Xero and enjoy this type of environment and role, then this Accounts Manager job may well be of interest.

As a small business with 40 staff, the majority of which are contractors, there is a lot of finance and accounts functions that need to be undertaken along with CIS obligations to support and document.

With this in mind, it’s really important that this is familiar ground to you and you are able to understand the intricacies of supporting accounts in a construction environment with the day to day Finance and Administrative work.

There is also a real need for you to be proficient using Xero accounts and are able to readily do accounts based tasks and be knowledgeable within a construction accounts environment.

This is a rare opportunity to work with a company that is happy to take on new ideas, new ways of working and give you the freedom to make this role you own.

The role has come about due to the current part time person wanting to take a step back and hand over the reins to someone new.

This company is an ISO organisation, is working towards IIP and is going from strength to strength, hence the need for an experienced and hands on accounts/finance person to help them align their back office function with their front end service delivery.

There are two general admin support staff that help with some aspects of accounts but this is not their primary objective, so ultimately it is the accounts manager that will be responsible for ensuring systems and procedures are in place and timely processing of accounts is undertaken.

  • Sales/Purchase ledger
  • Credit control and aged debtor reporting
  • Customer and supplier statement reconciliations
  • Process expenses and credit cards
  • Bank reconciliation
  • Quarterly VAT returns
  • CIS reporting and management of subcontractor payments
  • Annual P11ds
  • Month end and weekly journals
  • Weekly accounts reporting to MD
  • Monthly management accounts
  • Reports to HMRC
  • Financial accounts via Xero accounting software
  • Management reporting and analysis
  • General office duties

We are looking for:

  • Experience in the building/construction industry in an accounting capacity is essential
  • Ability to use Xero software
  • CIS knowledge
  • Comfortable using Microsoft Office, spreadsheets in particular
  • A relevant accounting qualification
  • Organised and able to work to deadlines
  • Self-motivated
  • Good communication skills (phone and face to face)
  • Happy to undertake a variety of tasks as typically needed in a small business as well as general office admin work
  • Comfortable working in a small team

In return you can expect:

  • Salary: £27-£30k (dependent on experience)
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • Hours: Either 9-5 or 8-4 Monday to Friday
  • Holidays: 20 days +stats
  • Free parking
