Job Details

Your new company

Based in central Bristol, this chartered firm represents a diverse range of clients in a variety of industries, including sole traders, partnerships, and limited companies, SMEs with turnovers ranging from £250,000 to £10,000,000, as well as a significant number of larger corporate clients with turnovers exceeding £40,000,000. Manufacturing, building, and printing are just a few examples of industries, and they also work with charities and non-profit organisations. As a result, a wide range of clients can be used to shape client work and portfolios based on the skill set, preferences, and motivations of the suitable personnel. As a result, people with a fully accounts/tax oriented background are just as valuable as those with a combined audit/accounts expertise.

Your new role

As an Audit and Accounts Senior Accountant, you will be responsible for managing, controlling, and conducting audit fieldwork for a diverse range of clients with a turnover of up to £40 million, as well as developing strong relationships with those clients and the potential for involvement in advisory projects with the management and director group. Clients come from a variety of backgrounds and businesses. Other roles include financial statement preparation for non-audit clients, account preparation, and other duties. Given the scope of the role and the firm's positive developments, there are excellent prospects for short/medium/long-term career progression for career-focused individuals seeking to develop and progress their accountancy practice careers following qualification within a successful firm of chartered accountants.

What you'll need to succeed

You will be ACA or ACCA qualified, having a background as an Audit and Accounts Senior Accountant in accountancy practice. You'll have recent experience working for a small or large accounting firm. So you could have experience working in smaller, independent organisations, directing the performance of audit, accounting, and other services to a diverse customer base including limited companies, SMEs, and OMBs, as well as single traders and partnerships. Alternatively, you may have spent your entire career in a larger company focusing solely on auditing large corporate clients and are looking for a transfer to a smaller business with more autonomy, influence, and control over your own career path. As a result, your career could have started at any size accounting firm. You'll be seeking for a challenging, long-term career move where you can carve out a career for yourself inside a very successful accounting firm.

What you'll get in return

£47,000 - £53,700 dependent on the experience background and level of the right professional, plus benefits.
