Accounts and Administration Assistant

Some people don’t think Tax Consultancy is the most exciting field in the world. We disagree.

Every business is a puzzle that just needs solving. And Counting King have a particular expertise in R&D Tax Credits. What we do is more than just filling in paperwork for our clients.

We help them shape their business to be agile, innovative and to maximise their tax efficiencies, so they can navigate the world of R&D Tax Credits and ensure that year-on-year they maximise their claim eligibility, recover some of their costs and allow them to continually reinvest back into their business.

Since we started up in 2018, we have supported over 100 SME businesses to successfully make these claims, and we’re getting busier and busier. So our small team needs some new members.

Enter: you, we hope. We’re looking for an Accounts and Administration Assistant to join our team in Salford.

Main Duties and Responsibilities

  • Providing an accurate and efficient administration service for the wider team, maintaining administrative processes and systems to ensure all our operations are running smoothly
  • Being a first point of contact for both our clients and other team members; responding to a variety of queries from colleagues and external customers as appropriate.
  • Contributing to the development and implementation of related projects and initiatives across the company as required.
  • Diary management- you’ll be responsible for contacting clients and book appointments for analysts to discuss projects.
  • Remedial accountancy activities in the form of general bookkeeping, invoicing and credit control.

Benefits You Will Receive

  • We have an enhanced holidays package- 25 days + bank holidays.
  • Training: for the right candidate, outside of our comprehensive in-house training from our Head of R&D Analysis we are also open to provide access to accountancy, administration or tax based qualifications.
  • In terms of an office environment, we’re relaxed (no suits and ties unless the clients are in!) and friendly with a beer fridge for Friday beers.

Full Time (35 hours per week)

How Do I Know If I’m The Right Person For Counting King?

As much as we’re looking for the right mindset more than skills- we want someone industrious, bright and who has a “client satisfaction first” mindset- we would like an individual to have experience working in an office environment in an administrative role with an element of phone-based working. Likewise, any financial experience in accountancy or tax is a preference but not essential.
