Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced Audit Associate who is ACA/ACCA qualified (or equivalent) and looking for a new challenge based in our Solihull office. You’ll have bags of personality, be good with people with an appetite for a challenge and the ability to hit the ground running and, oh… you’ll be pretty good with numbers too.


About the role...


Your main focus will be planning, executing and finalising all areas of audit assignments alongside our Managers and Partners. You will also need be delivering some smaller projects directly to the Partner. By doing this, you’ll help us deliver an exceptional client experience.


What you'll need...


As the ideal Associate candidate you will need to be:


  • A team player able to work at pace and under pressure – you’ll often have to gather information fast and work with groups of people to work things through.
  • Able to demonstrate a leadership/coaching style – you might work with more junior members of the team or who work for our clients where you have to be patient and help others develop.
  • A great communicator able to build relationships internally and with our clients – emails, phone calls, whatever it is – you’ll be straight-talking, open and good at getting messages across.
  • Have excellent attention to detail – you’ll get involved near the end of projects too, getting everything ready for sign off and looking over bits of work the team has done.
  • ACA/ACCA qualified or equivalent (ideally 1 year post qualification)
  • Most of all you will need to fit with the Cooper Parry values and vision – you’ll like how we look, how we sound and what we stand for. You feel like you’d fit in.


This is an excellent opportunity for someone with experience of being the senior on large, complex and high risk audits who has delivered projects to a high standard. You must have experience of delivering the whole audit cycle, end to end, including the planning of a new audit engagement from scratch. You will also be responsible for appraising others so you must be comfortable in the delivery of feedback and coaching to the team.


Our audit team is energetic, self-motivated and dedicated to giving a first-class service to our clients. We challenge the status quo, deliver exceptional results and have fun whilst doing it!


About us and what's in it for you...


At Cooper Parry our mindset is simple. We only do things if we believe we can be No.1.


We start by putting our people first. We offer competitive salaries, open holidays and flexible working. We’ve a great pension scheme, the “coolest” workplace (according to The Times and The Telegraph) and a 7pm-7am email curfew. We also offer exercise classes, career coaching and loads more benefits.


No wonder we came 13th in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2019!


We’re also growing fast. We’re the No.1 firm of accountants and business advisers In the Midlands for businesses with a turnover between £10-200m. We’re growing at an incredible rate and more and more companies want to work with us because of our values, culture and our ability to make it happen.
