Job Description

e’re killing it.... 


We are one of the fastest growing accountancy firms in the UK and we have the awards to prove it. We were voted as the 8th Best Place to Work in the UK by the Sunday Times, have won Audit Team of the Year in The British Accountancy Awards, and were voted Best Company in Europe in the European Engagement Awards.



Why? Because we are leaving the dull old ways of accountancy behind, making our own rules, and always putting our people at the heart of our success. 



About you:


You will be ACA/ACCA qualified (or equivalent) and looking for a new challenge, or rather somewhere to challenge yourself.


You’ll have bags of personality, you’re good with people and, oh… you’ll be pretty good with numbers too.


Your focus will be planning, executing and finalising all areas of audit assignments alongside our Managers and Partners. By doing this, you’ll help us deliver an exceptional client experience that’s central to everything we do


But lastly you will want to be a part of what and who we are here. An Audit function that isn’t afraid to change things. Isn’t afraid to take a risk. Where our people’s happiness is as important as our client’s happiness.  Where you will be pushed, challenged, and supported and truly develop your career how you want it to be developed.


What you will be doing/need


  • 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
  • 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.


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 we genuinely have fun doing it….so we want somebody that loves what they do and in return we will give you the place to love where you do it.


Are we a match?


Our values are at the heart of what we do at Cooper Parry and it’s really important we recruit like-minded individuals into our teams.  


Play all in – we are committed, engaged, and driven. 

In it together – we believe in all for one and one for all.  

Be Nice – we are kind, humble and authentic. 

Be Brave – we are bold, entrepreneurial and rebellious. 

Keep Learning – we explore, discover and are curious.  


A little more about life at CP….



We are challenging grey...  

We are challenging boring. We are challenging status quo. Our people engagement scores are through the roof – our people are fully engaged in everything we do - from how we embrace technology and workplace design to how we create innovative and flexible working patterns that have a positive impact on the service our clients receive and on the lives of our people. Our culture is who we are, and it genuinely shapes our strategy and the experience for our clients. The way in which we operate and the incredible environment we are building is hugely advantageous to those wanting to combine a career in practice with an unrivalled culture and personal growth opportunity. 


We are building a truly modern workplace culture...  


We’ve always believed in trusting our people to make the right decisions for themselves. From how you dress (our only rule is ‘wear something’) to when you work (we have no ‘core hours’) and how often you holiday (we have open holiday). We have just introduced another game-changing element we call ‘Work from Anywhere. Forever’ (WFAF!).  We now give our people the opportunity to work flexibly, and potentially from anywhere, giving our people the trust and accountability to deliver to the required standards.


Play to your strengths, we say. Create a role you’re truly passionate about. Then, work flexibly to design a life that’s right for you. 


Tired of the draining experience in your current audit firm? It’s different here. Read our culture book for yourself  #makelifecount 


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 doing that by putting our people at the heart of our culture. Why? Pretty simple really… if our people love working here then then they do amazing work. That’s why we offer things like: 


  • Competitive salaries aligned to big firms 
  • Open holidays 
  • No dress code - “Wear something!” 
  • Incredible development and career growth 
  • A truly flexible approach to work balancing working from home, in office or with clients - “Work from Anywhere. Anytime. Forever”.
