The Accountancy Recruitment Group Ltd

Semi Senior / Bookkeeper (independent firm of accountants) | Chesterfield | £25,000 - £30,000 + benefits

The Opportunity

High integrity, welcoming and professional independent firm located in central Chesterfield. You’ll enjoy plenty of variety, being part of a lovely team and superb work life balance.

The Partner is looking for an experienced accounting professional - someone with previous experience as Semi Senior or Bookkeeper within another firm locally.

You’ll be working with some really interesting clients and their portfolio is extremely broad (sole traders, partnerships and ltd companies across a total myriad of sectors).

It’s a practice with a reputation for quality, honesty and a partnership approach to accounting. They don’t cut corners or put you under pressure to send work out that is inaccurate or rushed. The important thing for the owners is that the employees and the clients they work with feel valued and prioritised.

You’ll be getting stuck into preparing finalised accounts, VAT returns, basic tax calcs and all round bookkeeping. You will ideally have used cloud based software (Sage or Xero) previously.

You need to have previous practice experience.

You won’t be micro managed here - there’s chance to do paid overtime if you would like to earn a little more at certain times of the year but equally there’s complete work life balance if you would prefer to stick to the core hours -- there’s also sensible flexibility in terms of start and finish times to ensure you can balance a commute / other commitments before or after work.

Basically a really friendly, enjoyable place to work and a firm with a reputation to be proud of.

You’ll ideally be AAT but qualified by experience is also fine. You need to be able to demonstrate success in a similar role within practice.


Great communication skills.
Confidence when working with a broad range of clients.
Xero or Sage experience.
Good understanding of accounts preparation and double entry.
High attention to detail and ability to manage your own workload effectively and calmly.
Being a team player who will make a brew when it is your turn!
