An Accounts Assistant is required for a Leeds business with whom we have a long-standing relationship.

We are partnering with Armstrong Priestley, who specialise in the installation and maintenance of fire protection systems. Armstrong Priestley are independently owned and have been in operation for over 40 years now. The business has recently gone through a management buyout and are looking to continue their growth.

As the Accounts Assistant, your main aim is to provide accounting and transactional support across the business, ensuring the smooth processing of data and assisting in maintaining accurate financial records. The finance team works closely with the operational side of the business, ensuring the ability to respond to client queries and opportunities with speed and accuracy. This is an additional position within the finance team.

Armstrong Priestley have shown year on year growth and are keen to continue this development. The business has a low staff turnover, operates from purpose build headquarters and you would become a key member of the team and business.

Some key duties of the Accounts Assistant include;
  • Producing and processing invoices
  • Liaise with engineers and ensure timesheets are accurately processed
  • Assist with job costings
  • Journal postings
  • Cash allocation
  • Ledger duties
  • Accounts administration

There is the potential to develop the role around your interests and desires. The business is growing, and support is required in a number of areas. The role could be recruited full-time or part time (minimum of 25 hours), and consideration will be given to candidates who are actively studying an accountancy qualification, this is not a requirement though.

Armstrong Priestley is based on the outskirts of Leeds city centre. The site has parking and is also accessible from the train station (approx. a 10-minute walk).
