Careers

We are always interested in applications from experienced bookkeepers and sometimes from payroll staff. We can offer flexibility, challenges, a superb learning environment and experience over a wide range of clients, with great satisfaction from a job well done. We are sometimes looking for qualified accountants of whom there are currently six in the Company.

This flexibility includes where you work - on or off site at clients, what time of day and how much work you handle - from usually a minimum of one day per week up to full time.

We believe we have the greatest concentration in the UK of operational Sage and Xero skills and experience - after all we have 45 staff! We all work well individually and truly as a team. This is vitally important as the basis for great client service. We are friendly, always approachable and we never score points of each other.

Clients are allocated BookCheck staff who they keep - this builds up a strong bond and aids communication. At the same time all staff know that help will be readily provided from the team, if required.

All work is thoroughly checked by a qualified accountant, normally monthly, so there is continuous feedback and training. We cannot imagine a better learning environment.

Prerequisites for a successful Bookkeeping application include:

  • Reconciling skills - a natural desire to 'get it right first time'
  • Solid computerised bookkeeping experience, usually a minimum of 2 years, almost certainly using Sage, Xero or both.
  • Ability to recognise when assistance is required and to work as a team
  • Willingness to follow tried and tested procedures and methodology
  • Prompt responses to email communications
  • Good communication skills
  • Accuracy and reliability

Prerequisites for a successful Qualified Accountant application include:

  • Reliability in producing sound monthly Management Accounts
  • Ability to handle the Opening Balance adjustments from the external accountant
  • Being able to flex to the client's reporting requirements
  • Good client handling skills
  • Prompt responses to email communications
  • Good communication skills
  • Accuracy and reliability

Prerequisites for a successful Payroll application include:

  • A preference for this role i.e. payroll is your first choice of work
  • Solid payroll experience, usually a minimum of 2 years, preferably using Sage
  • Ability to work as a team to deal with unusual situations
  • Timeliness, accuracy and reliability - as close as possible to 100%

We offer enormous flexibility - staff can choose to work:

  • At home or onsite with clients or a mixture
  • A choice of working anything from one day per week up to full time
  • At a time to suit, so the school run is not a problem
  • Changing requirements over time

We also recruit Supervisors, either directly or from within BookCheck. These are senior bookkeepers whose main responsibility is, not surprisingly, to supervise bookkeepers. This requires a high degree of understanding of Sage or Xero, a thorough knowledge of BookCheck systems, the ability to supervise staff and being a real 'people person'.

Please contact Zara Rayson, our Office Manager, by mailing careers@bookcheck.co.uk to explore the possibility of a career in BookCheck and to request an application form.

Please note - we always recruit directly and never use agencies
