Job Details

Your new firm
You will be joining a leading accountancy firm with strong presence across the North West for over 50 years. They specialise in departments ranging from audit and advisory to tax, payroll, business start ups and more. Their client portfolio varies on a huge scale, servicing clients including sole traders, OMBs, limited companies, groups and more for you to extend your current knowledge on. With continuous onsite training and clear progression programmes and clear flexibility in a role, this is the perfect next step in your practice career. Due to ongoing internal growth within the firm, an audit and accounts senior job has arisen.

Your new role
You will be joining a fast paced, growing team of audit and account professionals for you to both learn and develop from. Your day-to-day duties will cover assisting and overseeing the team with the planning and fieldwork stages of the audit whilst helping to ensure quality and compliance with clients. You will also work closely with the juniors in the team, advising and guiding them daily through stages of the audit, whilst maintaining current and forming new client relationships. In terms of accounts work, you will be preparing accounts to both manager and partner review, working predominantly on statutory and management accounts. The client base will be similar for both the audit and accounts work.

What you'll need to succeed
To succeed in this role, you will need to have a minimum 3 years experience within a similar role in an accountancy firm, whilst being either a finalist, qualified by experience or a qualified ACCA or ACA professional. You will need to be technically competent working with a varied client portfolio, working on all stages of an audit. You will also need to have experience preparing both financial and management accounts. With this technical experience, you will also need to show solid communication skills and demonstrate strong team-working abilities.

What you'll get in return
In return, you will be offered a competitive salary ranging between £30,000 to £40,000, dependent on experience. You will also be offered a very healthy work-life balance, consisting of flexible working hours, hybrid working patterns and a shorter working week. If you are still a studier, study support will be offered for you to complete your qualifications. Continuous on-site training and development programmes will be offered, alongside a healthy holiday package and many more benefits upon employment.
