Vacancies - accountant - Edinburgh / Kirkwall

EDINBURGH or KIRKWALL – flexible working

The opportunity

A great opportunity for an experienced accountant to join one of Scotland’s leading medium-sized Chartered Accountancy firms, based out of Edinburgh or Orkney.

We’d like to hear from candidates who want to join a progressive and ambitious team, providing first-class accountancy support to our portfolio of entrepreneurial Scottish companies. You’ll become a key member the team, working in a supportive and collegiate atmosphere to deliver great results for our clients.

The role
Based in Edinburgh or Orkney (but with the opportunity to WFH and other flexible working options), you’ll be joining a dynamic and friendly team who provide advice and support to entrepreneurial business owners and their companies, covering a wide range of strategic financial, tax and compliance matters.

The key responsibilities are to prepare statutory accounts and corporation tax returns for limited companies. Prior experience in corporation tax is not considered essential as training can be provided, but you will have relevant, recent experience of preparing and/ or auditing statutory accounts prepared under UK GAAP. There will be a high degree of day-to-day contact with clients, and of course with your colleagues across all areas of the firm.

Depending on skill set there may also be opportunities to work in other areas of the business (including corporate and personal tax planning, and M&A).

Key skills and attributes
- Current or recent experience working in practice
- Good knowledge of current UK GAAP (in particular FRS102)
- Excellent communication skills
- Excellent attention to detail
- Effective team player
- Committed to continuous personal improvement

You may be formally qualified (ACCA, CA) or qualified by experience – your ability matters more than the formal qualification.
