Cloud Accounting Specialist

Newcastle upon Tyne

ION is unleashing integrated cloud-accounting and Salesforce technologies into the UK mid-market, enabling its customers to sell faster and smarter, rapidly accelerate growth and outperform their competitors at every level.

We are a fast growing and ambitious team, with grand plans and a hunger for excitement.


Financial transformation is the process of utilising technology to effect change management within an organisation's finance function. In the case of cloud accounting, you keep your business books online. That includes records of income and expenses, and assets and liabilities. The information is encrypted, much like a bank’s, so only people with the login can view the data. Cloud-accounting provides a scalable and accessible solution, allowing ION to deliver services anywhere in the world.

The mid-market space is our focus and is an exciting place, but requires robust, versatile and proven solutions. That is why we are a software consultant and reseller of the following products, including FinancialForce, Sage Intacct and Accounts IQ that provide these very things.
