Job Details

In a nutshell

Would you rather spend a weekend camping rather that stay in a city centre hotel?

Maybe you grew up on a farm or you love being in the countryside?

Would you choose wellies and a gilet over formal office wear?

If you're more drawn to the rural options above, this is a great chance for you to specialise in the agri sector (if you haven't already) and continue to build a fulfilling and rewarding career.

Long term, you'll receive ongoing support to progress to a senior manager, director even up to partner level (if this is part of your career plan) with structured leadership programmes that have proven to be successful over many years from our in-house Learning & Development team.

Last year we had 10 internal partner promotions!

Evenings and weekends will be yours again - as we are one of the UK's Best Workplaces for Wellbeing by Great Place to Work and ensure that our employees have a good work/life balance.

What you'll be doing day to day

You'll be working with entrepreneurial agricultural clients who have diversified their farming businesses to cider farms, wedding venues, ice cream parlours and other interesting enterprises.

Some days will include networking and county roadshows, farm walks or local cattle markets. Sharing knowledge and catching up with other rural teams across our southwest offices will form part of a normal working week.

Overseeing workflow and day to day management of the team, coaching junior members who are studying their AAT/ACA/ACCA qualifications or who have recently qualified, with their development.

About you

You'll be an ACA/ACCA qualified accountant or AAT qualified accountant with years of relevant experience.

Rolling your sleeves up to get the job done and help others is just what you do.

Managing others is a rewarding part of your role and something that you enjoy.

Join a team who is proud to to work with a dedicated industry sector, that grafts all year round to feed our nation.

Don't worry if you don't have an up-to-date CV, feel free to email me at Carrie.MacDonald@pkf-francisclark.co.uk to arrange an informal chat.
