Hours: Monday – Friday, 36.5 hours per week
We’re looking for an experienced individual to supervise our Virtual Finance Office team at our Leamington and Coventry offices.
We’re accountants, and of course we do our clients’ accounts, but at HB&O, we offer so much more than ticking the boxes of compliance. We are our people, and it might be cliche but they really are what makes us special. The loyalty of our team (we’re talking ten, twenty or even thirty years service) speaks volumes about the way we treat our staff and the way we do business.
Our goal is to make the complex clear, looking beyond the balance sheet to pinpoint what our clients really need to help them take their businesses to the next level. We have built a team of passionate and experienced individuals who thrive on getting to know their clients’ businesses inside out so they can help spot opportunities.
The role will include:
Review bookkeeping and related workpapers prepared by staff members
Review VAT returns and related workpapers prepared by staff members and approve for sending to clients
Oversee progress for all department jobs (bookkeeping, VAT returns and management accounts) and take overall responsibility for meeting reporting deadlines
Monitor and maintain HR and job management software in line with department standards
Assist staff members with work-related queries, providing training and making decisions where necessary
Identify and resolve any problems with staff capacity, workflow and job cover
Act as the first point of contact for staff on HR related matters and resolve any issues
Conduct weekly team calls
Monitor and maintain all department specific controls and processes and ensure these are adhered to
Conduct spot checks and review work to ensure quality and compliance
Ensure physical and e-filing systems are well managed and maintained
