Are you a finance professional looking for a new challenge, who is analytical and thrives on problem solving in complex environments? Do you understand how finance teams need to embrace change? Are you keen to utilise your experience in a challenging and varied role which will allow you to work across diverse projects and clients to make a real difference?
The Opportunity
We are looking for individuals to join our dynamic team in our Advisory business in Auckland. The Advisory business forms part of our wider Assurance and Advisory function, and due to our exciting growth we want to speak with people who are passionate to build a successful career.

  • Supporting clients during disruptive events (large transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions, divestments, etc.).
As a result of the diverse nature of the work you will often find yourself working with other professionals in tax, corporate finance, risk, and consulting expertise. You will develop effective business relationships, and both lead and manage teams.
You will have the opportunity to genuinely help our clients, and make a real contribution as we grow by bringing your point of view and energy to the team.

In addition, you will need:
