Job Details

Yeah, so, we have a Foosball table and dress down every day. . . but we are going to take a guess at this stage in your career, these things probably aren’t very high up on 'must haves’ from your next move. . .

Do any of these sound familiar? 

"I’m not unhappy but I would like to work with more interesting and complex clients, I want to keep developing my knowledge and leadership skills"

"I enjoy what I do but I need/deserve a better work life balance, hybrid, flexible working is what I need in my life!"

"I have no chance of stepping up until people retire, I want to know what I am working towards"

"timesheets drive me crazy". . .

We can’t help you on the last one but the others we feel confident we can!

Picture this, you would be joining an ambitious top 60, 16 partner practice at a time when the audit team is growing. Although there are 165 employees across the firm, you would become part of our 35 strong audit team, stepping into an Audit Managerrole. 

To be totally upfront, the Audit team has grown quickly over the last 12 months, we have recruited across the board from Semi Seniors to Senior Managers, individuals have joined from the Big 4 (and can’t get over the work life balance!) and smaller practices (who can’t get over the CPD and training!). The recent recruitment has been a down to a large amount of work being won and internal promotions to Partner and Director, resulting in portfolio redistributions. 

The redistribution of work coupled with work being won, means your portfolio would include groups, international organisations, subsidiaries, and holding companies across different sectors. There really is scope for your career to develop and you would have the support of Angie our L&D specialist to ensure everything is in place so that your aspirations become a reality. 

As an experienced Audit Manager, we don’t need to go into the day-to-day duties of that part of the job role. You would have the support of our brilliant team of Assistant Managers, Supervisors, Seniors, Semi Seniors and Trainees.

The Nitty Gritty

Flexible working? It’s not just lip service here at Carter Backer Winter LLP. We operate in a hybrid model (3 days office, 2 days remote), 35 hour working week, you can work your hours between 7am - 7pm, to work around you, your life and the most important things. 

To top it off, you get to work in an environment that promotes both personal and professional development and supports wellness in the workplace. Feel free to check out our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Glassdoor).

As with any job we think there are a few things that would help you succeed from the start, these include:

  • ACA / ACCA qualified - with a strong auditing and accounting services background dealing with a wide range of clients and currently working in an Audit focused Manager role
  • Strong technical knowledge - bit of an obvious one, but you will need to have an excellent working knowledge of IFRS, UK GAPP and Auditing Standards
  • Have a desire to take responsibility for continuing to support development of your teams
  • Strong IT skills - we use Excel, CCH Auditing and Accounts modules, CCH Time Management, Inflow, Mercia, and Xero on a regular basis
  • Excellent communication skills, comfortable liaising with team members and holding meetings with clients
