Role: Bookkeeper / Accounts Assistant
Location: Poole, (Hybrid & Flexible)
Hours: 15-35 hours per week as a guide

What you will experience

On joining Ocelot you will have an opportunity to help and have an insight into the awesome world of Content Creators, whilst also growing as a person and professional.

You will be able to help create and design Ocelot as we grow, by improving processes and establishing a role of your own. Your thoughts and ideas will be encouraged and listened to.

This is a great opportunity to work in a business that focuses on results and outcomes – not how many hours you put in. You will be able to work at the office, in a coworking lounge or at home – and have flexibility to set your own schedule around life, with encouragement to prioritise self-improvement and growth.

You’ll be encouraged to join industry events such as Xerocon, Digital Accountancy Show, Accountex and more!

Ocelot has some really amazing clients who you will get to work with – from the smallest to the Top UK creators. You will work in partnership with some of these creators who will be very polite and appreciative of your help.

Although we are all individually responsible for our own success, we’re stronger together as a team. You’ll be given a sense of purpose and meaning through your work, whilst also being fully supported and valued as an individual by the team and clients you work with.

  • Weekly bookkeeping for a portfolio of clients using Xero & Dext
  • Preparing VAT returns
  • Maintaining the Fixed Asset Register
  • Month end reviews
  • Preparing reports so clients understand their financial position
  • Working closely with and supporting other team members 
  • Communicating proactively and understanding client needs
  • Constant self-improvement, working as part of and being supported by the team!
  • Assisting with business development and ideas

What we will give

  • Casual dress (be yourself!)
  • 25 days holiday, plus Bank Holidays
  • Additional 3-4 days holiday for annual Christmas shut down
  • Access to Foundry Workspace (Poole) facilities & events
  • Become Xero certified
  • MacBook supplied
  • Flexible working arrangements

Who you need to be

  • You are a bookkeeper qualified to AAT Level 2-3 or above
  • You have 1-2 years experience within a practice
  • You have a good understanding of Bookkeeping, VAT and Sales – or be willing to learn these
  • You like using Xero!
  • You will be someone who goes above and beyond basic bookkeeping and accounting – someone who will look after our clients, and give them the service they deserve! You will be somebody who understands we don’t just do bookkeeping & accounting – we help our clients to achieve their dreams.
  • Confidence in communicating directly with clients
  • You’re comfortable with video – recording, introducing, casual chat, etc
  • You can write – string a good sentence together, keeping complex accounting concepts simple and communicable.
  • You love content creators, and want to incorporate some creative ideas into Ocelot!
