About the Accountancy Practice


You’d be joining a small, well-established accountancy practice of four people. This is a brand new role so you won’t be filling anyone else’s shoes.

As the new Trainee Accountant, you’d be assisting with a portfolio of up to 150 service-based companies, so your personalised approach to work is vital.

  • Sole trader accounts

  • Partnership accounts and tax returns

  • Personal tax returns

  • VAT returns

  • Confirmation statements

  • Advising on salary and dividends

  • Telephone and email support to portfolio

  • Assisting the team with inbound phone calls and email

  • Maintaining and updating the Practice CRM


This is not an email-only, transactional role. We need your strong phone and face-to-face communication skills so as the clients feel well looked after by the practice.


You’ll have the following skills, experience and personality traits:


  • Working on, or completion of a relevant degree

  • Exceptional organisational skills and accuracy, with great attention to detail

  • Strong communication skills and a commitment to great customer experience

  • Strong problem-solving skills and a pro-active attitude

  • Good IT skills, in that you are confident, willing and able to learn new platforms and IT solutions

  • A desire and commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience

  • Easy to get along with, in a small team

  • Happy to have a mixture of home working and office-based work (Horfield, Bristol);  with easy parking


We are happy to offer support with any relevant training you might need.

If this feels like it’s the type of career opportunity you’d like, in a practice where fantastic customer experience and happy team members are paramount, please send your CV across today.
