Bookkeeper, Hove – £13-15.00 p/hr (3-4 days per week)

I am delighted to be starting the recruitment process for a small and successful business to find them a really competent, diligent and commercially-focused bookkeeper who relishes a varied role. You will take full responsibility for all aspects of daily financial accounting transactions for both sales and purchases. This will involve the use of Sage Cloud Professional to generate sales orders with the appropriate product codes, generating purchase orders and completing pro forma and final invoices for customers.  You will also manage payment runs, along with all associated administration and following up with suppliers/customers so you will need to be a strong communicator who is very well-organised with a real eye for detail. 

Other duties will include submitting VAT returns, maintaining bank reconciliations, month/year end processes and producing management reports as required. Advanced Excel skills are essential for recording and analysing project costs, and you will also be very experienced in the use of Sage 50. You will also need to be comfortable taking on administrative duties as it’s a small team and everyone mucks in to get the job done and meet business objectives.  Please note that is essential you have recent experience of managing a project-based invoicing process using Sage 50. 

If you are an accomplished SME bookkeeper with a CV which demonstrates commitment to previous employers and the ability to add value to business processes and efficiency, then we would love to hear from you. Please include in your covering email a note of which hours/days you can work and at what hourly rate you are hoping for. Also please let us know if you are self-employed or are looking for an employed (PAYE) role.  This role will be based at the directors’ house for the first few months while they find new business premises in the Portslade area (so you must be happy with working in a home business environment for a while where there is a family dog!).
