We are looking for a Sage 50 Specialist to join our friendly team. This is a busy and varied role, so great if you would like to deal with both the technical and support side of things but also get involved in accounts work to support clients.
This is a working from home UK based position.

There is the opportunity to expand your duties into many other areas.
Who you are:
You should be a Sage super fan with expert knowledge and have a desire to work within a busy environment of an exciting and forward-thinking business. You are down-to-earth, honest, have an eye for detail and behave in a professional manner. You are I.T. proficient with Sage 50 Accounts and ideally Sage 50 Payroll software and have experience using Microsoft Excel.
This role would suit someone who is highly organised, is a good communicator and is able to manage working to deadlines and works well under pressure. Being able to re-prioritise constantly in a fast-paced environment and be reactive to urgent enquiries and client demands is essential.
This job is for you if you don’t like any two days to be the same and love helping clients achieve results with their software. We want you to be able to come at things from a business perspective, as everything we do is centred around the user.
You should be comfortable completing migration projects that include end of period transfers of debtors, creditors and bank ledgers plus the closing Trial Balance once available.
You should have a minimum of 5-years real-world working knowledge of Sage 50 Accounts in industry and in particular have experience of the SOP, POP, Products, BoM and Projects functionality. Manufacturing sector experience advantageous but not necessary.
The suitable candidate should have high-end management accounts experience. You don’t need to be qualified, you can be qualified by experience, but you should be able to produce a set of management accounts. If you have forensic accounting experience or have ever worked somewhere with Sage 50 which was in a mess and you had to get it straight and un-pick things, that’s music to our ears!
Applications close on 4th December 2020.
Please submit cover emails and C.V.’s early as they will be reviewed as soon as they are submitted. Suitable candidates may be called into interview before applications close.
Please apply via email to Rebecca at email@example.com with your C.V. and covering email outlining why you think you would be suitable for the position.
