Job Details

You will be working for a Top 10 firm in Southampton. Their teams are partner-led and coordinated across disciplines, allowing them to provide clients with professional service and all-round advice. The team provides a range of services including external audit, finance due diligence, valuations, and payroll services to a diverse client base ranging from small businesses and startups to substantial international groups, and their client portfolio includes businesses from a variety of different industry sectors, across both private and AIM listed companies.

They are seeking a talented individual to join their Audit Team in Southampton, which is responsible for planning, performing, and completing the audit process for each assignment. You will ensure clients are provided with a high-quality service, through effective management of resources and liaison with relevant departments.

As Audit Assistant Manager, some of your responsibilities will be to establish relationships with key contacts at the client; ensure that clients receive efficient and proactive service and expectations are exceeded; identify issues and agree resolutions with partner or Director, ensuring they are up-to-date with the job's progress; have an awareness of commercial aspects of clients' business and its impact on our work; identify and highlight any opportunities for the firm apparent from work undertaken; have regular discussions with the client to confirm progress, identify solutions to any hurdles and ensure reasonable expectations are met.

You will be technically competent with a good commercial awareness along with strong communication skills (internally and directly with clients).

In return, you will receive a competitive salary and benefits package and be given every opportunity, and the support, to progress your career forward.
