What we're looking for

Are you a Semi Senior Accountant looking to work with an independent accountancy firm that will value your expertise?

Are you a Junior Accountant looking to work for a firm of accountants that will provide learning programmes within a positive and supportive environment? If so, this role for a Semi Senior Accountant in Watford with a forward thinking, independent firm of accountants could be for you.

Perhaps you're studying towards your ACA, CA or ACCA qualification or are already qualified? You'll certainly have an appetite to become qualified and ideally you will have more than eighteen months of experience within an accountancy practice.

It goes without saying that you'll be IT savvy and familiar with using cloud-based accounting systems. And you'll have excellent attention to detail and accuracy when it comes to producing accounts.
