Scholes CA aims to make a positive impact on society through the skills and expertise of our talented team of accountants and finance professionals.
We believe in supporting the entrepreneurial community who, through their commitment and application, contribute so much to our economy, communities and society.
Our team supports small business owners by providing them with the financial information, business advice, resources and technology they need to achieve their goals and overcome challenges.
Right now we have a vacancy for a degree-level graduate who shares our belief and aspires to make a positive contribution to small businesses everywhere.
Your qualification doesn’t need to be in accountancy, as we will consider graduates from all fields. You will however be able to demonstrate that you can work accurately with detailed information; you’ll also be able to demonstrate a keen interest in the world of business, perhaps with some prior experience through family connections or relevant work experience placements.
On a personal level, you will be the sort of person who believes in always doing the right thing; performing to the best of your ability; keeping your word; and communicating effectively. You will enjoy working both independently and in teams; you will also need to be comfortable in an environment where change is a constant.
On a daily basis, this interesting and varied role will include exposure to audit, accounts preparation, income & corporate taxes, indirect taxes and business planning. From the very beginning, you will have regular, daily contact with small business owners from a range of industry sectors.
For the right person, we offer a highly competitive salary package, plus support to help you develop your new career, including attaining professional qualifications such as ACCA and CTA.
If you’re interested in joining us then apply in writing, enclosing your CV, to Karen Scholes, Scholes CA, 8 Albert Street, Kirkwall, KW15 1HP, no later than 31 May.
For more details, or if you'd like a confidential chat before applying, contact Karen by e:mail or phone.
