This role involves leading our Outsourced Finance team in their work to help our clients thrive by providing them with meaningful financial information at their fingertips. You’ll be making a massive difference to both our clients and the Wow team.

You’ll have extensive experience of bookkeeping and/or management accounting and love dealing with people as you’ll have a lot of contact with business owners, answering queries and providing them with management accounts, all completely remotely using the latest technology.

Giving business owners financial information at their fingertips. Here's how you'll make a difference:

  • Building and maintaining great relationships with clients, helping them run a slick finance operation and answering their queries day-to-day
  • Keeping the client's accounts up-to-date, so they always know how their business is performing and can make decisions
  • Processing management journals, such as prepayments, depreciation and accrued/deferred income
  • Running monthly reports and preparing Management Accounts
  • Completing and reviewing balance sheet reconciliations and monthly management reports is essential
  • Using your VAT knowledge to advise and prepare VAT returns, ensure deadlines are met
  • Using software such as Xero and Dext, as well as packages such as Google sheets
  • Working with the other teams at Wow to ensure we deliver a smooth and collaborative service to our clients

To be successful in this fast-paced, ever-evolving role you will need the following:

  • People Management experience
  • A love for supporting and training people
  • Be process-driven, ensuring all processes are followed and documented
  • A high level of technical bookkeeping expertise
  • Good hands-on knowledge of Xero
  • An understanding of other Xero apps such as Dext
  • Extensive bookkeeping/accounting experience, either in an accountancy practice or in industry
  • An AAT, ACA or ACCA qualification is desirable but not essential
  • A passion for connecting with clients, and an ability to build trust and rapport quickly
  • A positive, collaborative, team working approach

Location and working hours

  • The position is full-time, with flexible working around Wow’s core hours of 10am-4pm. There is no fixed start or end time each day.
  • You'll be based in the UK, so you can join us for our quarterly team days and social events.
  • Day-to-day, you get to choose where you work. All you need is your laptop (which we’ll provide) and the internet... and enough snacks to see you through the day!
  • Whilst you have the freedom of remote working, we don't want you to feel remote. Right from the start, you'll feel connected to the amazing Wow team through a series of online and in-person events that will help you build the relationships and get the support you need to thrive in your role.
