Accounting Technician - Long-term stable role with excellent benefits - £18-25k

MCS Group has an excellent opportunity with a leading accountancy practice in Belfast. This firm prides itself on being a small practice that takes on large practice work – specialising in providing technical solutions to high-net-worth clients while also offering a very personal and consultative service to clients at every stage of the process.

The Role:

To assure you are given the right balance of support and autonomy, you will initially be given an estimated amount of work to do based on your previous experience and skillset to see how you get on. You will work closely with the directors and managers who will regularly take the time to discuss your performance and explore how they can best assist you in your role and personal development. You will have a range of duties including:

  • Preparation of monthly, quarterly, and year end accounts using Sage
  • Managing a portfolio of weekly and monthly payrolls
  • Supporting the completion of tax, VAT and CIS returns
  • General bookkeeping and admin duties
  • Offer advice to clients and other staff when required

The Person:

  • Must have previously worked in an accountancy practice
  • Must have demonstrable accounts experience, ideally in all areas listed above
  • Must be confident in liaising with staff and clients in a professional manner
  • A relevant accounting technician qualification (AAT, IATI) is highly desirable but not essential


  • Competitive salary based on experience
  • Regular meetings to discuss ongoing performance and future plans.
  • Reviews based on individual performance instead of ranks/levels or time frame
  • Office-based due to local clients
  • Free parking
  • Gym and showers facilities on site

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 or send an up to date CV via the link provided to speak further about this opportunity.
