Are you ready for your accountancy career to grow? Are you ready to impress and delight as a result of your work?
When you join the CRASL Team, you become part of our accounting family.
We are looking for a Bookkeeper to join our friendly team.
You join a team that cares passionately about your next career move, as well as getting support to help you to define and achieve your personal goals.
You will be part of a team that cares passionately for its clients, ensuring they receive your helpful and friendly approach to delivering the best of our services.
We work with each of our customers for smarter, faster solutions that free them up to nurture their business.
You will have the choice to work flexibly when you are most productive to get the work done around our core hours of 10 am – 4 pm. Start your working day early or late in the morning, whatever works best for you and your clients. The quality of work and the client experience are what is important, not the number of hours you put in.
You will be given time to ensure you are up-to-date with the latest changes in accounting, taxation, and technology with regular training sessions.
Our team matters to us and whilst what we do may be serious, it does not mean the way we do business has to be. You will find the way we work makes us an enjoyable company to work for, in a fun environment.
We meet socially at least once every quarter to do something fun, whether that’s laser quest, a BBQ, or a meal. All paid for by CRASL!
You will be part of an organisation that is always looking for a more efficient way of working; we encourage innovation and your ideas will be valued.
