Job Description

You’re happy in your current role. . .but you are still reading this ad. . just a little curious, we get it and we kind of like that.

"I’m not unhappy but I would like to work with more interesting and complex clients"

"I enjoy what I do but I need a better work life balance, I don’t want to go back to the office full time"

"I have no chance of stepping up until people retire, I want to know what I am working towards"

"timesheets drive me crazy". . .

We can’t help you on the last one but the others we feel confident we can.

Picture this, you would be joining an ambitious top 50, 20 partner practice at a time when the audit team is growing. Although there are 165 employees across the firm you would become part of our 35 strong audit team, stepping into a brand-new position created for an ambitious experienced Audit Manager.

To be totally upfront, a great Senior Manager joined us in Q1 in a hybrid role to take on the technical side of things and manage a portfolio, they are doing amazingly, however due to the amount of work being won we would like to free more of their time up by dishing out the portfolio. There has also been a recent Director promotion internally we now have a really interesting portfolio that needs looking after . . .this is where you come in!

The redistribution of work coupled with work being won means your portfolio would include groups, international organisations, subsidiaries, and holding companies across different sectors. There really is scope for your career to develop and you would have the support of Angie our L&D specialist.

As an experienced Audit Manager, we don’t need to go into the day-to-day duties of that part of the job role. You would have the support of our brilliant team of Assistant Managers, Supervisors, Seniors, Semi Seniors and Trainees.

The Nitty Gritty

We totally appreciate that joining a company during a pandemic isn’t going to be as straightforward as normal, but rest assured even before COVID-19 with our use of tech we were set up for homeworking and are ready to induct our newest team member remotely if needed and welcome you to the team using Microsoft Teams and lots of online support.

To top it off, you get to work in an environment that promotes both personal and professional development and supports wellness in the workplace. Feel free to check out our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Glassdoor) and visit the FAQ section on our careers page to see how we are continuing to support everyone through COVID-19.

As with any job we think there are a few things that would help you succeed from the start, these include:

  • ACA / ACCA qualified - with a strong auditing and accounting services background dealing with a wide range of clients and currently working in an Audit focused Manager role
  • Strong technical knowledge - bit of an obvious one, but you will need to have an excellent working knowledge of IFRS, UK GAPP and Auditing Standards
  • Have a desire to take responsibility for continuing to support development of your teams
  • Strong IT skills - we use Excel, CCH Auditing and Accounts modules, CCH Time Management, Inflow, Mercia, and Xero on a regular basis
  • Excellent communication skills, comfortable liaising with team members and holding meetings with clients.
