Heart Bookkeeping exists to service small business owners who value our support, expertise and recommendations as they juggle the many aspect of running their own business.

At Heart Bookkeeping we genuinely care about the success of our clients and the wellbeing of each other. To succeed with us you must enjoy working as part of a team, be driven towards achieving outcomes, have a positive and friendly attitude and be tech savvy. You must also be resourceful and curious – we love people we come to us with solutions rather than problems.

Yes absolutely! We are a fast growing bookkeeping firm with big goals and ambitions. We prefer to promote from within where there is someone willing and able to fill the position and we work with our team to plan their professional and career progression.

As well as the advancement opportunities available within our current organisational structure, we envisage further opportunities opening up in the next few years so watch this space 😉

Some our roles can be performed remotely and we may allow employees to work from home where they have a productive and dedicated work space and excellent internet connection.

Generally all roles will start in the office environment (unless specific otherwise on our Job Advertisement) for training and culture development purposes but could then be transitioned to partly or fully WFH

Work from home employees are required to fund their own desk, chair and internet service. If you are partially WFH you will also need to provide your own screens at home, as Heart will provide your screens within the office. Heart will provide your laptop and headset in all working arrangements.

Our workforce is made up of team working in casual, part-time and full-time capacities which suit their lifestyles. Some of our team work shorter days or shorter weeks because it’s what works for their families.

If you’re available at least 3 days a week then we’re likely to have a role to suit you. Some of our more senior roles do require a minimum 4 day week so just check out the specifics of the job role for clarification before applying.
