Job Description

Are you an ACA qualified Statutory Accounts & Tax Manager / General Practice Manager from a small firm background, looking to upgrade to a niche accountancy practice firm based in zone 2 North London that specialises in working with music, media, creative and entertainment clients? Are you looking to work for a firm where you can gain exposure to interesting clients and better quality work, and assist the partners with the day to day smooth running of the department? Are you also looking to work in a general practice role, where you can utilise all of your accounts, tax, supervisory and advisory skills? If so, this growing independent accountancy practice with around 30 staff is looking to recruit a new member of staff due to impressive growth over the last few years. Based in the business services department, your role will be varied, and will include managing a portfolio of clients, preparing statutory accounts for clients, corporation tax returns, personal tax returns and supervising junior members of staff. You will be responsible for reviewing work, managing a small team as well as ad hoc projects. You will also be responsible for liaising with clients and building relationships. A very strong emphasis is put on the advisory side of accountancy and you will be expected to provide value added advice to your clients on a regular basis. Your role will mainly be supervisory based but will include a hands on element for more complex work. You will work directly with the partners and be the first point of contact for clients. Your client base will be varied and include an impressive array of SME and medium sized businesses, all from the music, media, creative, entertainment and art sectors (eg music promoters, music producers, designers, fashion labels, gigs, shows and events, festivals, ticket sales, music agents, security and stewardship providers etc). Most clients will be small and medium in size.

To be considered for this new role you must be a fully qualified ACA Manager with PQE, although the firm will also consider someone who is a qualified Accounts Senior or Assistant Manager and looking to step up into a managerial role. Your current role must include the above duties (including preparing accounts and tax returns, managing a team, supervising staff and managing a portfolio of clients). You will now be looking to upgrade to a firm where you can advise interesting and high growth entrepreneurial clients and have high levels of responsibility from day one. Experience in a range of software packages would be an advantage particularly sage and CCH.

This growing accountancy firm has a great reputation for being a friendly and supportive place to work and providing their staff with challenging and varied roles. You will work in a friendly and growing team, work directly with partners and you can expect to work on an interesting array of clients from the music, media, creative, design and entertainment industries. The firm is growing at a rapid rate due to many new business wins from larger accountancy firms and they have very ambitious growth plans for the next few years. Overall this is a unique opportunity for a good quality small firm Accounts Manager / General Practice Manager / Accounts & Tax Manager who wants to work in a good quality independent practice firm with great promotion prospects and work life balance, to join a leading player in the business services sector and carry out a high profile accounts & advisory role.
