Finance Assistant

Job description

The one for the aspiring accountant. 


Ideally you're a recent graduate or equivalent who can demonstrate some technical grasp of the basics and may have some previous finance / accountancy experience too.


You get to be part of one of our awesome delivery teams of 2/3 talented people with your own portfolio of start-up clients.


As a Finance Assistant you’re expected to get stuck in pretty quickly, with the full support of your Senior Finance Assistant and Business Accountant teammates.  Given this, we are looking for candidates who can adapt and learn right from the outset.


Applicants should have up to 12 months previous experience of working in a UK firm of accountants, ideally in a smaller firm where a wide range of skills were needed. The ability to take the initiative to solve problems and a desire to learn are key.


The important other stuff


You’ll be supporting the team at ihorizon in a variety of areas to ensure high quality client service at all times. On the job, and with the experts around you, you’ll be continuously learning whilst balancing the busy workload against studying for your accountancy qualifications, which we’ll fully support in paid time and funding.


We don’t stand still and neither should you at ihorizon. You should be looking at progressing to Senior Finance Assistant and Business Accountant in due course, taking on more responsibility and personal growth as a result.
