Transactional accountancy or, as it is sometimes called, clerical accountancy is the backbone of any accounts and finance department.
Transactional accounting is about recording the financial events of the business according to acceptable practices. Responsibilities of transactional and clerical accounting jobs vary by level and experience. Not only is it an entry point into the accountancy and finance industry but it is also the gateway to becoming a part-qualified and, eventually, qualified accountant. However it is also a vocation in itself, with many people progressing into management and leadership roles within transactional areas after having made successful careers in their specific niche.
As recruiters we have to be on top form. It means that we have to understand what the client wants and needs in forensic detail. It also means that we need to understand what experience the candidate has, what their capability and skills are and their ambitions. Only when we have all of this information can a successful match be made.
For this reason we invest heavily in our training and processes. We provide a full consultancy service – it is not just about sending over CVs and asking the client to sift through them. It’s also about ensuring we support a candidate so that we give them every opportunity they need in their careers.
Some of the many transactional accounting and clerical accountancy roles we work on:
- AAT Qualified jobs
- Accounts Assistant jobs
- Accounts Receivable jobs
- Assistant Accountant jobs
- Bookkeeper jobs
- Credit Controller jobs
- Payroll jobs
- Sales Ledger jobs
The clerical market lends itself particularly well to temporary and permanent jobs. Temporary jobs normally come about because of a seasonal increase, a maternity/illness cover or a fixed term project. They can be undertaken by the professional temporary worker/contractor or by those who are searching for permanent work. Similarly, organisations are looking to recruit those people who will add to their team and enhance the value they have. Therefore there are many permanent transactional accountancy jobs and opportunities.
Whilst we advertise all of our roles, often the fast moving nature of transactional accountancy can mean that things move swiftly, therefore feel free to send in your CV (visit the contact us page and select your closest office) and sign up for our Jobs By Email in the box to the left hand side.
