Job Description

We are looking for a Manager to join our Corporate Services team in our Taunton office, which is just 2 minutes from junction 25 of the M5. You will lead teams on client audits, having an excellent understanding of your teams’ strengths and experience and assign the right people to audit assignments and deliver exceptional client service. The clients you will be working with are exciting and varied, operating in sectors such as food and drink, sports, manufacturing, software developers/sellers, charities and other not-for-profits.

Due to new client acquisition and company growth, our Taunton audit team is going through a sustained period of growth, leading to excellent career prospects for you to look forward to.

What you'll be doing:

  • Manage a portfolio of corporate services clients – for whom we provide both audit and non-audit services. Planning, review and completion/reporting of audits – reporting directly to partner whilst on some larger groups may be working alongside one of the senior audit managers
  • Manage a portfolio of Business services clients – for whom we provide non-audit services. Key point of delivery for vast majority of services delivered to these clients
  • Responsible (with appropriate systems training of course) for the management of our own work in progress and billing on the above portfolio(s)
  • Day to day role would involve the coaching/training of individuals but I would expect that in time you would have an appraiser role for some of our team members
  • Support on special projects for both on an ad hoc basis for the above clients
  • Being the key point of contact/relationship manager for these clients
  • Supporting office partners and directors in business development/marketing activities – both direct targeting and networking/developing own profile.
  • The split of audit to non-audit work would be very broadly 50:50

About you:

  • ACA/ ACCA qualified (or equivalent)
  • Post-qualification experience in audit and a good working knowledge of compliance, regulation and bespoke audit and accounts software
  • Full, clean driving licence, plus unrestricted access to a car (which must be insured to cover business use and the transport of passengers)
  • Professional, articulate and confident in approach
  • Capable of quickly building rapport with clients
  • Corporate tax awareness
  • Previous experience of managing and developing people
  • An ambitious, technically able and strategically-minded team leader
