Finance Assistant / Part Qualified Accountant

   Farnborough Airport, UK

Finance Assistant / Part Qualified Accountant

Basic Salary £23K to £28K (depending on experience) + benefits

Are you an experienced finance assistant or AAT part qualified accountant? Do you possess strong Excel skills, a fastidious eye for detail and the flexibility to work across a variety of finance functions?

AeroProfessional is a dynamic aviation manpower business located at Farnborough Airport. In our small finance team, everyone makes a big difference – contributing to purchase and sales ledger activity, payroll, bookkeeping, financial reporting and office management functions. We operate to a busy monthly schedule, where the timely achievement of financial deadlines helps the business maintain its excellent reputation as a world-class provider.

Right now, we are seeking a permanent full-time Finance Assistant to join our busy team, working Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.30pm. Reporting to the company’s Financial Controller, you will perform a wide variety of tasks across a number of profit centres, using Excel and Sage 50 as your main tools.

What you’ll be doing

  • Raising customer invoices
  • Updating sales ledgers, including credit control and processing of bank receipts
  • Processing and checking invoices from external contractors and suppliers
  • Payroll compilation (to gross-pay level)
  • Bookkeeping and contributing towards monthly management accounts
  • Upkeep of various ledgers and spreadsheets, encompassing a range of business processes
  • Assisting with office management, including facilities, equipment, stationery supplies etc.

Our Finance Team supports our various profit centres very closely, so you can expect to be exposed to (and feel the pulse of) our operational business way more than you might in a larger corporate environment. Everyone’s contribution is both visible and recognised!

We are looking for a dedicated professional who places a very high importance on accuracy – and who takes extreme pride in their work. Beyond that, we are seeking a committed colleague with proven ability of the below:

What attributes you’ll need

  • Communicate effectively at all levels
  • Confidently deal with customers, contractors and suppliers, by phone and by email
  • Take responsibility for their work and use their initiative
  • Complete tasks in a timely manner, with an understanding of the impact of missed deadlines on the wider business
  • Use Excel to a strong intermediate level

Desirable Attributes

  • Experience of Sage 50 would be advantageous, as would the ability to demonstrate progress towards a professional accounting qualification (eg AAT).

AeroProfessional offers a competitive salary, 23 days annual leave (which increases with length-of-service) plus an attractive benefits package which includes an option for varied start-times and 20% remote-working following probation period. Our modern well-equipped offices are located at Farnborough Airport, with parking available onsite.

We look forward to hearing from you.

All candidates must have the right to live and work in the UK.
