You will enjoy talking with clients who need assistance with their accounting systems, and to be able to deal with these enquiries, promptly, confidently and courteously (we ensure you aren’t on your own so don’t worry support will be available from colleagues and our own IT).

You understand the need and are willing to visit client premises to set up and maintain book-keeping records and quarterly VAT returns and provide support to clients, who maintain their own records, using the relevant accounting systems.
