MCS Group have an exciting opportunity for a qualified accountant in Belfast, offering excellent client exposure and autonomy.

MCS Group is proud to work with a leading accountancy practice in Belfast that prides itself on being a small practice that takes on large practice work – specialising in providing technical solutions to high-net-worth clients while also offering a very personal and consultative service to clients at every stage of the process.

The Role:

To assure you are given the right balance of support and autonomy, you will initially be given an estimated amount of work to do based on your previous experience and skillset to see how you get on. You will work closely with the directors and managers who will regularly take the time to discuss your performance and explore how they can best assist you in your role and career development.

  • Take the lead in managing your own client portfolio, allowing you to be the main point of contact for your clients.
  • Get involved in a broad range of services, including: accounts, audit, tax, corporate finance, forensics, and business planning and advisory work.
  • Become a mentor for junior team members, including: delegating work, assisting with ongoing training, ensuring key deadlines are met, and enhancing the overall service delivery.

The Person:

This firm is looking for a career-driven individual with a strong accounting background who is looking for more autonomy and client exposure in their role.

  • You must hold a professional accountancy qualification (ACA, ACCA, or equivalent)
  • You must have a strong accountancy practice background (ideally 2-4 years PQE)
  • You must have demonstrable experience in accounts (and either audit and/or tax)
  • You must be confident in liaising with staff and clients in a professional manner


  • Competitive salary based on experience
  • Regular meetings to discuss ongoing performance and future plans.
  • Reviews based on individual performance instead of ranks/levels or time frame
  • Primarily office-based due to local clients
  • Free parking
  • Gym and showers facilities on site
