Location: Manchester Salary: £18,000 to £22,000 per annum + AAT Study Support
Accounts Assistant + AAT Study Support
Manchester City Centre
£18,000 – £22,000
When I asked the Finance Director this business what he was looking for from his next recruit, he told me this:
“An individual who will be listed as a senior figure on our meet the team page in the next few years. An Accounts Assistant who has the potential to move up the ranks and become a Management Accountant and tell me in their appraisals that they want to become FC… we’ll then make sure this happens”
If this isn’t an exciting vision, I don’t know what is – an opportunity to work for a manager who will genuinely invest in you & your development and more importantly, practice what he preaches.
A lot of roles at this level have a shelf life of 1-2 years; you go in and earn your stripes but then realistically you’ve reached as far as you can go at that business.
That’s where this role is different; you be on the receiving end of some of the best training I’ve seen in the workplace to enable you to progress through the company as they genuinely want you to be a long-term fixture at the business… 5, even 10 years from now!
Platinum had the pleasure of placing the FD 9 years ago in this very same role… and look at him now! Leading not only this business but managing the entire group finances in Manchester and London… the opportunities for growth & progression are endless.
The business can not only fund your accountancy qualification (this doesn’t stop at AAT, you can then continue onto ACCA or CIMA) and you will be eligible for an annual discretionary bonus based on company performance – this can be as much 30% of your annual salary on top of your March wage packet.
To be considered for this opportunity, you must have at least 12 months’ finance experience (purchase and sales ledger will suffice) or an accountancy degree with a placement year.
I am interviewing immediately so please submit your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered.
