This independent firm of chartered accountants and business advisors enjoys an excellent reputation for quality and has experienced exponential growth over the last few years. This has in turn created an opening for an experienced auditor to join directly as a Manager.

As an Audit Manager, you will contribute greatly to the relationship management of a number of important clients. This will often mean being the first port of call on technical and other queries and offering general accounting advice to clients within your portfolio. Responsibility for ensuring that audits are planned and executed to the highest standards, billing and recoveries managed and certain fees negotiated will also form part of your role. It is anticipated that you will contribute towards the marketing and business development activities of the office, preparing tenders and attending new business meetings (full support and training will be given as this may or may not be an area you are familiar with). This is not seen as a career manager role and the expectation is that you will show the qualities required to become a senior manager and beyond in due course. To be considered you will need extensive up to date external audit experience delivered to quality mid-market privately owned businesses and be a fully qualified accountant, ACA (ICAEW), CA (ICAS) or ACCA from within a quality firm of accountants, though it does not need to be a national firm. Excellent P&L and balance sheet skills and great inter-personal and communication skills are a given.

This firm values its people, their development and their work and life balance highly. They will offer encouragement and support to help you develop along with excellent clients to work with. If that sounds like your kind of firm I will look forward to hearing from you soon.
