Firm: Fast Growing Mid-Tier Firm

Workload: 100% Accounts and Tax (Exposure to Audit Offered)

Salary: Up to £40k

Are you an experienced senior who enjoys close client contact and a mixture of corporate and HNWI clients? Are you looking to progress to a manager level in the short term and director level in the medium term?

If so, our client, a progressive accountancy firm in Chelmsford is looking for an ambitious Accounts Senior to join their team. The client base is an extremely varied mix of OMBs and HNWIs covering sectors such as property investment, media and business services (in particular recruitment consultancies) with the largest client having a turnover in the region of £50m.

Whilst this role is expected to be 100% focused on accounts and tax preparation, the workload in the department is 20% audit and therefore should the successful candidate wish to gain experience in this area they will have the opportunity to do so.

The Accounts/Audit department has grown four-fold in the past four years, mostly due to referrals based around their proactive and value-added service to their clients. This has led to the firm looking to recruit someone at the Accounts Senior level and who can demonstrate the ability to move up to Manager level in the medium term. The firm are seeking an individual who is comfortable supervising staff and who has the commercial acumen and drive to progress.

As the successful candidate you will:

  • Be ACCA or ACA Qualified
  • Have a minimum of three years' experience with a UK accountancy firm
  • Be comfortable with supervising staff
  • Able to demonstrate good client relationship skills
