Team Supervisor

Business Planning Meeting

Job Description

Location: Coventry and/or Leamington Spa

Salary: Competitive

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

  • Respond to telephone queries and provide ad-hoc support to clients

  • Assist managers and client managers with monthly client billing

  • Assist managers and client managers with general administrative duties

  • Oversee staff performance and provide regular feedback to managers

  • Assist with conducting quarterly appraisals

  • Assist with the recruitment of new team members

  • Identify the need for and assist managers with the development of department specific processes and controls

  • At least 18 months practice experience

  • Qualified by experience

We look forward to hearing from you.
