You will work in a friendly and growing team, and you can expect to work on an interesting array of high profile and growing London based clients as well as international clients from some very interesting sectors. The firm is growing at a rapid rate due to many new business wins from larger accountancy firms. This is a unique opportunity for an ACA qualified Audit & Accounts Manager or Assistant Manager / Supervisor (or an experienced senior) to join an entrepreneurial yet traditional practice and play a role of great importance to the continued growth of the firm.
