Are you the super-duper Accounts Superstar that SSG are looking for? Come & join the growing team of SSG & become part of our wonderful journey

by Max Jones / Monday 17th JuLY 2017


★ Up to £35,000 per year
★ Wonderful opportunity for a AAT qualified or qualified through experience accountant  
★ Friendly, encouraging & motivated office environment

Stuck in a role which doesn’t challenge you? Had enough of going through “the motions”? Want to be part of a close knit team in a genuinely growing business? Or as Monthy Python used to say - Do you like the idea of something completely different?...

If so, how about ditching all of your career woes and coming over to ‘The Dark Side’?

SSG have a fantastic opportunity for an number of Accounts professional to join our committed team, working out of our beautiful and unique offices, based in the very heart of Berkhamsted (near Hemel Hempstead).

You will work with our client base (who are all small recruitment companies) to generate Monthly Management Accounts (and all the weird & wonderful “things” that come with it!). 

►Who are SSG?

Since 2003, SSG has offered motivated Recruiters a free business launch and brilliant ongoing business support facility in exchange for nothing more than a decreasing percentage of the on-going billings of the business.  No fixed costs, no money up-front, no surprises.

From our humble starting point back in 2003, we have been fortunate enough to have now established over 300 new Recruitment Companies for our target demographic.

►Your Opportunity – Accounts Superstar!

Working closely with the existing team, you will take responsibility for the production of Monthly Management Accounts (and everything that leads up to their production – invoicing, credit control, expenses, VAT calculations, bank reconciliations, chatting, laughing and the inevitable consumption of coffee) for an existing client base of recruitment companies. 

You will have all the fun of working closely with your own portfolio of clients, who will look to you for practical advice, moral support and encouragement, as they work hard in their own business.  You will gain satisfaction in knowing that you are making a real difference to the lives of the recruiters we support.

At the same time, you will be supported by a great team of people here at SSG who are lovely, friendly and brilliant at their jobs (I know, because they told me!)

►Key skills required?

★You will need to understand the whole world of Accounts, but you will be particularly familiar with the production of Monthly Management Accounts and all the associated tasks involved with their production. 
★You will ideally have worked with small Limited Companies in the past and have experience spinning the plates and dealing with a number of different clients at the same time. 
★You’ll have experience working within Accounts in a recruitment background.
★You will be able to confidently liaise with all ‘stake holders’ involved in the delivery of our superstar service, and be professional, friendly, punctual, of smart appearance, dedicated and caring.
★You will need to be the type of person who thrives on getting things just right, being in control of a process, focussed on the perfect administration of a basically human task.

This is not easy – combining efficiency with real care in a genuinely empathetic way.
So, yep, the best way to describe this role is Accounts with Personality, Accounts with a twist, Accounts+…! 

►The Rewards?

What’s in this for me, I hear you ask?

Well, apart from the genuine satisfaction of doing something unique, learning new skills and enjoying being a key member of a totally ‘different’ business, you will probably be interested in some of the following stuff:

★ Salary between £25,000 & £35,000 per annum.
★ Exceptionally friendly and helpful colleagues
★ The usual holiday allowances
★ Pension scheme
★ Lovely working environment
★ Constant challenge
★ Full Fat Friday, every Friday

Honestly… SSG is a great place to work!
