 Job Description

Accountant - Part Qualified or Fully Qualified - South Down Area

MCS Group is proud to be working with an accountancy firm in the Newry area to source an Accountant to join their team. This firm prides itself on offering a very personal service, working closely with clients at every stage to establishing strong and long-lasting relationships. The firm believes in having high expectations but provides staff with the freedom and autonomy to get the work done in a way that suits them. This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking for a role closer to home that offers work-life balance and a supportive work environment.

The Role:

  • Work with a range of local clients of various industries and sizes including sole traders, partnerships and limited companies
  • Play a key role in accounts preparation and tax compliance work, including UK and ROI tax returns, VAT returns, and CIS returns
  • Report directly to the Partners and get involved in mentoring junior members of the team

You must have a number of years’ experience working in an accountancy practice and be able to demonstrate your ability to prepare accounts and tax work. You must be able to speak confidently to clients and be responsive and adaptable to client needs. You will ideally be part-qualified or qualified in the relevant qualification (ACA, ACCA, or equivalent) but relevant experience will be weighted more highly.

In return, you will be joining a small practice with the capability of offering a long term, stable role within a friendly team environment. You will be competitively remunerated and enjoy a varied workload.

I am keen to have an initial discussion with anyone who feels this role could potentially be of interest. Please contact Caroline Gaughan, Specialist Consultant at MCS Group on 028 9023 5456 or send an up to date CV via the link provided to speak further about this opportunity.
