Rebels Seeking New Bookkeeper to Bring Freedom to Universe and Local Businesses

Kate Stathis

Head of Bookkeeping

We're on the hunt for a new bookkeeper. Think you got what it takes?

Join the ‘misfits who give a sh*t’ - are you the ace BOOKKEEPER we're looking for?

This is an amazing opportunity to work with a bunch of award-winning and passionate people, who genuinely give a rats about their clients. At illumin8, we think outside the box and have a heap of fun along the way. We understand that work is not life and encourage a healthy work-life balance. We embrace technology and run our business 100% from the cloud and help our clients to do the same. (Fancy!) 

We're on the hunt for the next FREEDOM FIGHTER to be part of the illumin8 family and add value to our thriving team, and our incredible clients. Your role and responsibilities will include maintaining up-to-date financial information for clients by recording everyday transactions, preparing Business Activity Statements, processing payroll and producing financial reports.

While you're going to love the flexibility and options this role offers, we’re going to love that you:

  1. Are highly efficient and have out of this world communication skills
  2. Consistently deliver high level attention to detail, maintaining client records with ease and joy
  3. Pride yourself on your kick-ass personality
  4. Having proficiency in Xero software would be great (but not required), bonus points for Receipt Bank
  5. Are Xero Certified and have Xero Payroll Certification (or aiming towards this)
  6. Basic understanding of accounting principles 

Perfect for a ‘return to work parent’, someone who values flexibility, or a university/ TAFE student - our bookkeeper will love working alongside our large range of clients and be equally as invested in who our clients are as people, as well as their business and the ‘numbers’.  We combine our innovative and driven approach, with our quirky vibe, making illumin8 one truly unique workplace. 

This role will begin as 1-2 days per week (or hours equivalent), with the potential to grow as illumin8 continues to. So, hurry up and get in touch with us, as we are dying to meet you!

 “But how?!”

  1. Shoot us through your resume 
  2. Whip up a cover letter ‘selling’ yourself
  3. And record a quick video highlighting who you are and why you’re beyond perfect to be our next bookkeeping legend

Due to interest, if your application does not include all three of the above, we won't look at it, sorry. Bonus points for creativity!

Farewell Mav

Excitement and fear - The two contradicting but so often coupled emotions that come with a significant change. That was me 19 months ago.
