Are you a detail oriented accountant with a good understanding of how to account for fixed assets? Do you understand component accounting and like taking ownership of the fixed asset register? Are you looking for a fully remote contract with a quick start?

My client is a charitable housing association currently working fully remotely and using the time to make some significant changes to their stock. A five year plan is in place to renovate and refurbish a number of homes which will impact the Fixed Asset Register, meaning they are looking for an Interim Fixed Assets Accountant on an initial 3 month contract to:

  • Liaise with stakeholders primarily in the maintenance teams to understand upcoming stock changes
  • Update the Fixed Asset register to reflect the changes that will be made to the stock over the coming years, highlighting changes to depreciation and amortisation
  • Ensure the system accurately reflects the true value of components according to the work that will be done on the properties
  • Set the Fixed Asset Register up to be accurate by the end of the financial year in time for audit.

For those with a good understanding on Component Accounting and Fixed Asset Accounting, ideally in the Housing sector, this would be a great role to own a substantial project and deliver huge value to an organisation doing hugely worthwhile work. The post can be fully remote and there will be no need to visit the office during the course of the contract.

To be considered please meet these criteria:

  • Demonstrate a clear understanding of component accounting and fixed asset accounting through your experience
  • Have strong interpersonal skills
  • Have strong systems skills, ideally with bespoke Fixed Asset Accounting software.

This post is likely to move quickly as soon as the right person comes forward – please apply now.
