Job Description

Are you a qualified ACA / ACCA qualified Audit Manager / Audit & Accounts Manager from a small or medium firm background looking to upgrade to a larger, Top 60 practice based in a prime location in the West End Central London? Or are you currently working in a large practice as an Audit Manager, and looking to move to a smaller firm for a better work life balance and better career progression? Are you keen to work in a friendly environment with a good work life balance, with great support for all staff, training and CPD on offer as well as progression opportunities to senior manager level? Based in the audit and accounts department, your role will be up to 70% audit based, with the rest of your time spent on accounts and general practice assignments including advisory and corporate finance projects. This unique firm has a laid back and easy going culture and would suit someone from outside of London looking to make their first move into a London practice, or a bigger practice firm looking for a better work life balance. You will be responsible for managing your own portfolio of clients (C£400 - £500k); managing audits from planning to completion, managing small teams, reviewing work, giving staff appraisals and reporting directly to partners. You will also carry out a number of interesting ad hoc advisory based projects as well as new business development. Your clients will be varied and include industries such as media, property, entertainment, technology and retail.  There will also be genuine opportunities for you to progress to Senior Manager level in the future due to the office needing some more managerial leadership. A large number of partners in this firm started out as Managers so they have a very strong track record of promotions to partner level.

To be considered for this new role you must be a qualified ACA / ACCA with post qualification experience, currently working in a good quality practice firm either as an Audit Manager / Audit & Accounts Manager or an Audit Supervisor / Audit Assistant Manager looking to step up to your first managerial role. It would be beneficial if you have experience managing your own portfolio of clients as well as experience of a wide range of software packages. This firm has also had great success with candidates who have lived outside of London and relocated to London and wanted to work in a good quality, friendly mid tier firm. Experience of a wide range of clients would be an advantage as would enthusiasm to progress in a short space of time.

This friendly Top 60 practice with around 60 staff and a client base to rival a much larger firm, will offer you a challenging and varied role, interesting and high profile clients to work on and genuine work life balance. You will also have the opportunity to progress to a higher level in the future. This represents an excellent opportunity for a qualified ACA or ACCA Audit Manager with strong academics to work in a rapidly growing London based practice, develop your audit, accounts, advisory and managerial skills and receive top rate training and support in a friendly and profitable firm.
