Job Description

Are you an ACA qualified Audit Manager from a good quality practice firm looking to upgrade to an international Top 20 firm based in Central London? Are you looking to receive excellent training and support so that you can step up and work for a larger practice, work on larger, technically more challenging clients (with turnovers from £50m to £600m although some clients are much larger) manage larger teams, yet still work in a friendly environment with a good work life balance? Based in the busy audit & advisory department, your role will be 100% audit and advisory based. You will also gain exposure to advisory projects and special assignments such as due diligence, fraud investigations, valuations, acquisitions, disposals, business plans etc. This unique firm has a laid back and easy going culture and would suit someone looking for a good work life balance. You will be responsible for managing your own portfolio of clients (GRF £500 - £800k); managing audits from planning to completion, managing teams, reviewing work, giving staff appraisals and reporting directly to partners. You will also be responsible for assisting with new business development and winning new clients for the firm. Your clients will be varied and include industries such as media, property, renewable energy, transport, mining, technology, professional services and retail.  There will also be genuine opportunities for you to progress to senior manager grade in the future due to the office needing some more managerial leadership.

To be considered for this new role you must be a qualified ACA with post qualification experience, currently working in a good quality practice firm (ideally a top 50 firm or larger) as an existing Audit Manager. It would be beneficial if you have experience managing your own portfolio of clients as well as experience of a wide range of software packages. At least 60% of your current role must be audit based. Experience of IFRS would also be an advantage. This firm has also had great success with candidates who have previously lived outside of London and relocated to London in order to work in a larger firm and with larger clients, but still work in a friendly team with a good work life balance. You must have experience of managing audits from planning to completion as well as other general practice and advisory assignments. Experience of a wide range of clients would be an advantage as would enthusiasm to progress in a short space of time.

This friendly Top 20 international practice with a client base to rival a Big 4 firm, will offer you a challenging and varied role, interesting and high profile corporate clients to work on and genuine work life balance with flexible working arrangements possible. You will also have the opportunity to progress to a higher level in the future. This represents an excellent opportunity for a qualified ACA Audit Manager with strong academics to work in a rapidly growing Top 20 practice, develop your audit, general practice, advisory and managerial skills and receive top rate training and support with great opportunities to learn new skills and progress to a higher level in the future.
