Trainee Accountant - Galway

Candor is a boutique accountancy firm of 18 staff based in Galway city.  We are a progressive, staff focussed organisation where work/life balance is key to delivering top class customer service.  Happy staff lead to happy clients. 

We currently have an opportunity, commencing this summer, for two top class trainee accountants who will be trained to the highest level over a three and half year contract.  Working as part of a young, dynamic, innovative team you will learn all that is required to become a qualified accountant.  The world is then your Oyster!
The role involves working as part of our team to deliver top class service in the following areas:

  • Basic bookkeeping for businesses from a variety of industries
  • Accounts preparation for year end compliance
  • VAT, Payroll and PAYE/PRSI returns
  • Audit assistant
  • Liaising directly with clients to deal with issues as they arise

The role is a progressive one with additional responsibilities and management experience as the contract progresses. We love exploring new and better ways of doing things and provide an environment where trainees can voice their opinions and provide solutions we may not have thought of.  

A minimum of a 2.1 Honours level degree is required preferably in a business related field but not compulsory.  We are open to applications from other backgrounds but it needs to be clear why you want to work in an accountancy firm.
