Part Time Accounts Administrator  

£12 per hour

10-15 hours per week

At Crescent Business Support, we’re looking for someone to join our fast-growing team of virtual assistants as an Admin Assistant. This is a flexible role, covering between 10 - 15 hours per week primarily working from home.

As a business, our job is to make our clients’ lives easier with exceptional standards of office support. Therefore, we’re looking for someone who has worked in administration and has the confidence and knowledge to tackle the role with skill and enthusiasm.

You’ll have experience in a similar role, some knowledge of office support systems, and be able to grasp new tasks quickly - though we will offer training where required.

To thank you for your work ethic and dedication to doing a great job, you’ll be able to work remotely and have some flexibility with your hours to fit around family and life>

This is a permanent, part-time role. We’re looking for someone to start as soon as possible on a salary of £12 per hour.

What is the role?

As our Accounts Administrator, you’ll be working mainly alongside our founder, Amy, to support both the running of Crescent Business Support and our client accounts.

Your role will include:

  • Sending invoices and other accounting duties using Xero Cloud Accounting, including adding purchase receipts, new client details and bank reconciliation.
  • Credit control.
  • Sending out new client contracts and setting up clients on our system.
  • Organising meetings.
  • Acting as a liaison between other members of the team.
  • Writing and following office protocols and policies.
  • Carrying out daily data entry activities, as well as other admin tasks.
  • Maintaining company records to make sure we’re compliant with data protection laws.
  • Attending and participating in necessary meetings, networking activities and training sessions.
  • Other additional tasks may be reasonably required on occasion.

What skills are we looking for?

Our clients bring us on board because they need someone who can take over their processes and make their lives easier. So, we’re looking for someone to join us who has the experience and confidence to take on tasks with ease and efficiency.

You must have a minimum of 2 years previous accounts admin experience.  We need someone who is confident using Xero Accounting software and Microsoft packages – specifically Outlook, Word and Excel – and who has the ability and willingness to learn quickly. Of course, not every system nor every piece of software will be familiar, and we will offer training if required.

We’re also looking for someone who has the skills and professionalism our clients have come to know and expect from us. To be successful, you’ll be:

  • Well-organised.
  • A great communicator, with excellent verbal and written communication and thorough attention to detail.
  • Proactive.
  • Able to show a positive attitude at all times when dealing with clients.
  • Computer literate.
  • Have great attention to detail.
  • Polite and well-mannered.
  • Able to follow instructions and be confident making decisions.
  • Educated to at least GCSE Level 5 in both English and Maths or equivalent.
  • Able to work in a group and well as independently.
  • If you have or are working towards a bookkeeping or accounting qualification this will be a bonus.

As we support our clients virtually, you must have experience working remotely or from home.

What about holidays and benefits?

This is a great opportunity for someone who has a busy life>

Pay depends on your qualifications and experience, but will initially start at £12ph. You’ll also have the opportunity to earn overtime.

Other benefits include:

  • 17 days holiday per year, including statutory bank holidays (28 days per year FTE)
  • Christmas closure: the office will close for Xmas Day to New Years’ Day inclusive. The working days in this closure period will not be taken from your holiday allowance and will be in addition.
  • Day off for your birthday
  • Company pension scheme available (if applicable)
  • Benefits platform offering discounts on shopping, leisure as well as access to health and wellbeing support including counselling.
  • Regular team lunches.
