The Company:

This firm treat people like adults and have a focus on attaining high standards while also achieving a good work life balance.

  • You will be given the freedom to make the role your own, offering support in driving the business forward, winning new work, and expanding into new areas.

The Person:

  • You must be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, or equivalent) with a practice background
  • You must have experience of managing the accounts and audit process from start to finish, overseeing junior team members to increase service delivery and the ability to maintain strong long-lasting relationships with clients.
  • You must be a confident and driven individual who wants to take on more responsibility and ownership in their field.

The Benefits:
