If you are a qualified accountant with project management experience, this is a fantastic opportunity to drive the success of a growing group with a bright future.

We are AIR IT, a responsive, client-focused and award-winning Managed Service Provider, helping clients achieve success and transformation through their IT and communications. Independently ranked as one of the UK's top and most progressive Managed Service Providers (MSP), we are a mature, well-established and trusted strategic technology partner with over 15 years of industry experience.

We're currently looking for a Project Accountant to join us and support the group's ongoing integration and growth.

The Benefits
  • Competitive salary
  • Pension
  • Healthcare scheme
  • Training, development and progression opportunities
  • Make your mark with a fast-growing business


This is a great opportunity to make a positive, lasting impact with our organisation and shape and define processes across the group to ensure our future success.

Making sure that our employees love what they do is just as important as ensuring our clients love what we do. We take great pride in offering a fantastic place to work, where staff are happy and able to thrive and grow.

Here, you will be supported to pursue your professional ambitions while helping us elevate our group to new heights of success. What's more, as this is a new role in our business, you will have the freedom to shape and evolve it as you see fit.

As a Project Accountant, you will work across our group to deliver a range of finance-related projects.

Reporting to the Head of Finance, you will help to integrate the finance systems from our newly acquired businesses into the group finance system.

What you will be doing:
  • Liaise with our newly acquired businesses to understand their current reporting processes
  • Review our existing finance practices and recommend a consistent set of processes to use going forwards
  • Develop consistent group reporting
  • Support budget preparation activities
  • Use lessons learned to create a methodology for future acquisitions


What we need from you:
  • To be a qualified accountant (with an ACA, CIMA or ACCA qualification)
  • Project management experience
  • A track record of working in a fast-paced environment
  • Knowledge and experience with a variety of IT systems
  • A strong understanding of the technicalities of a group structure
  • Intermediate (ideally advanced) MS Excel skills
  • Ideally, you will have experience of system changes or large projects, but this is not essential. Experience with mergers and acquisitions would also be an advantage, as would experience with Xero
