Your new firm

This four partner firm has offices in Barnoldswick and Skipton offering accounts, taxation and business advisory and support services to a wide range of businesses and individuals.

Your new role

What you'll need to succeed
The partners are looking to appoint a general practice trained Chartered Accountant (ACA is preferable however ACCA will also be considered) who is currently managing their own portfolio of clients. As a future leader of the firm you must be able to demonstrate a strong commercial acumen, the ability to lead, develop and maintain excellent client relationships and a sound work ethic.

What you'll get in return
