Job Description

We are looking for an experienced, reliable Manager to join the specialist Charity and Not-for-Profit team. You will have significant experience managing a portfolio of clients and have a keen interest in the not-for-profit sector.

Client Details

Our client has nearly 450 people working together under one roof at their office in London, making them the largest single office accountancy firm in the UK.

Trust underpins the culture there, together with specialist expertise, approachability and exceptional client service. Trust is more than providing the best expertise. It's about character and integrity. The people you trust have values that match your own. Because of this, cultural fit is an important consideration when choosing people to join their team.

They're big enough to display deep knowledge over a range of specialisms, but small enough to understand the power of personal connections. They long ago moved from being accountants to being advisers and are now partners to their clients. In fact, they believe that what they do is as much about relationships as expertise, so they are looking for individuals who are prepared to look beyond the numbers, to see the people and stories behind them.

The importance of relationships is equally important between colleagues. They expect our teams to collaborate with each other to successfully operate across departments. It means externally they support the whole of the client rather than a fragment and internally we all benefit from shared experience and knowledge.
