THE WHO, THE WHAT AND THE WHERE

We could probably write 2000 fluffy words telling you all about why we think this is a phenomenal opportunity, but you’re an accountant, and you like facts, so let’s hit you with them:
- The business is led by three incredibly experienced and talented individuals who have learnt everything they know from the major players in accounting. They know what works well, and what doesn’t and have modelled the business around this.
- Given their experience, they have a really diverse range of fascinating clients including private groups, high net worth individuals, internationals… the list goes on.
- There are genuine opportunities for career progression, the business is in a phase of rapid growth and with so much work on, if you excel, it will absolutely be recognised. They have yearly pay rises and bonuses (they even paid them during Covid)
- You are strongly supported by solid administrators so there is very little admin. They’re also very technically advanced and are into paperless work environments so you’ll be more efficient and save the planet at the same time – double win!
- They are very social and quite frankly, just a tonne of fun. An accounting job is an accounting job, you know that, and you’re smart (because you’re an accountant) so you also know that having a place you enjoy going to every day is key.
- The office is currently based in Leederville (hello amazing lunch options!) but it won’t be home forever. The new digs are going to be state-of-the-art and freaking phenomenal. You may have to wait a year or two until you find yourself there, but it is going to be worth it. At the moment the office they are in is shared with another company (they are really cool too) so you can see how another business operates.
- QUICKFIRE ROUND: Ongoing training and CPD, financial (and emotional) support for CA study and flexible working arrangements.

That was only 280 words. How did we go?

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

Again, you’re smart, you’re an accountant (are we buttering you up? We totally are but no one is here to stop us), so you know what is to be expected of you, but he is a taster:
- Preparation of income statements, financial statements, BAS and FBT
- Assist with the prep of tax effect accounting and General Purpose Financial Statements
- Research and provide advice
- Assist with financial modelling, cash flow planning and budgeting for clients
- Maintaining regular client contact via all avenues including meetings

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

Apart from their incredibly strong knowledge, one thing that they really pride themselves on is their ability to understand the very technical and be able to explain things in a way to clients so they can comprehend and have a little “ah-ha” moment. We are looking for someone who can do exactly this and prove it to us. We are also looking for:
- A Bachelors Degree in Accounting or Commerce
- 3 to 6 years experience in Public Practice accounting (if you are experienced in public practice, but don't quite fit in this bracket, please still apply as there are other opportunities available via Itch).
- Experience in Xero (ideally)
- Strong attention to detail and very good at compliance
- Someone who is sophisticated and sharp, with a very professional presentation
- Great communications skills, both written and verbal
- Someone who wants to join in on the fun and positive culture
