Accounts Senior

Our client is a very well-known and respected practice with a prestigious reputation who require an experienced Accounts Senior to join their expanding team. Based in a rural and beautiful part of the town centre, this opportunity would be ideal for someone who wishes to be employed with one of the best accountancy practices in the region.

This role will involve preparing accounts for various businesses, including limited companies, sole traders, and partnerships together with the associated tax computations.


The role would be primarily limited company accounts preparation, of which 85% would be in the Darlington office and 15% would be at clients (vast majority within 15 miles of Darlington).
There may be some supervision and training of junior staff members, including reviewing their work.
the role might involve a bit of management accounts and sole trader accounts preparation (mainly January) but this would be small compared to the limited company accounts work.
