Make your career count

At Price Bailey, we provide exciting opportunities for training, personal growth and career engagement. We believe in fostering happiness and fulfilment in your work, whilst supporting and inspiring you to grow. We understand that your life extends beyond the workplace, which is why our Smart Working culture promotes flexibility, allowing you to choose when and where you work, whilst still providing excellent client care.

A well-established firm of chartered accountants and business advisors, we offer a wide range of services, including auditing, accounting, tax and corporate finance. We proudly serve a diverse client base across the UK and internationally, with a strong focus on entrepreneurial owner-managed businesses that share our passion for innovation.

What do the team do?

Our Outsourcing department is rapidly evolving and has quadrupled in size over the past two years to meet the needs of its ever growing portfolio of clients. They typically work with moderately sized firms from a plethora of sectors that require our external expertise to help support them with operating their finance functions. 

This can be on specific elements, such as data-entry and maintaining their books and records, support with VAT compliance, through to providing them with insightful management accounts. We can also offer a fully outsourced finance solution, which encompasses all aspects of an internal finance function.

We have a relationship centric approach and are trusted advisors to clients of all shapes and sizes, but they are typically owner managed businesses, giving you the opportunity to deal directly with the decision makers and to truly help shape the direction of their firm.

  • Onboarding of new clients, including system set ups and process reviews, advising both new and existing clients on optimum processes and suitable systems to achieve objectives laid out.
  • Managing a team varied in role, from trainee accountants, assistant accountants and management accountants.
