We need to expand further our financial reporting team to meet anticipated growth in our audit practice, continue to provide technical accounting support, ensure quality is maintained, identify efficiencies in working practices and lead on implementing financial reporting changes as they are published in the future, so this is an exciting time to join the team and be part of our journey!

About the Job

Your primary role will be:

  • Acting as a financial reporting specialist on complex audits, providing audit teams with targeted expertise on the subject matter to support high audit quality
  • Assisting with financial and non-financial reporting consultations submitted to the firm’s service desk
  • Responsible for performing second opinion reviews of technical accounting matters under IFRS and UK GAAP, developing our audit teams in the process
  • Drafting corporate reporting internal technical communications and practice aids
  • Working with other team members on ongoing projects, including input into the development of audit work programmes, taking responsibility for the financial reporting intranet pages, development and review of technical materials for training purposes and researching new and emerging financial reporting developments
  • A point of contact for informal technical queries from client-facing partners and staff, in your local region but also supporting other offices nationwide


Role Requirements

  • ACA/ACCA qualified - or equivalent
  • Experienced Senior Manager with experience of working in, or very closely with, an audit technical team
  • Strong IFRS and UK GAAP financial reporting knowledge
  • Experience of performing technical reviews of UK Premium, Standard and AIM listed entity financial statements to ensure compliance with reporting requirements
  • Excellent written and interpersonal communication skills
  • Attention to detail and ability to respond to and meet deadlines

In return, you will get to work closely in our growing team with other like-minded, collaborative and supportive individuals, and the opportunity to engage with a wide range of individuals within the audit business and other departments such as Accounting and Financial Reporting, Learning & Development, Valuations and Risk & Advisory Services and Ethics Team. 

This role will enable you to progress your career whilst developing deep technical knowledge and expertise, and to help others deliver quality audits and financial reporting advice as they navigate the imminent exciting changes in both; core areas of corporate reporting (such as changes in accounting standards); and emerging areas (such as sustainability reporting).

Hybrid working is available. This role can be based out of any of our UK offices, but some travel will be expected to regional offices.
