Job Description

Job Description

Godfrey Wilson is an award-winning charity-specialist practice in Bristol. Having built a reputation as a leading provider of audit and accountancy services to small and medium-sized charities, we now work with over 200 charities in Bristol and nationally. Due to sustained growth and some exciting new client wins, we are looking to expand our audit team at the Audit Senior level.

The role would suit a recently qualified auditor who is looking to take the next step in their career, or an experienced auditor looking to work with a more values-driven firm. As a rapidly growing firm, we can offer excellent career progression opportunities and are particularly keen to hear from people who are keen to progress to Manager level within a year or two.

A passion for charities is essential – it runs through the heart of everything we do. At Godfrey Wilson, an audit isn’t just about ticking boxes, it’s about using our skills to make a difference: strengthening governance, identifying efficiencies and challenging embedded practices. Our work helps our charity clients to grow and evolve and ultimately to become more effective.

You will be joining a firm that values and rewards its people. You will receive a competitive salary and pension alongside a comprehensive package of benefits and wellbeing initiatives: from flexible and remote working options, generous annual leave, healthcare membership, Employee Assistance Programme, and performance-related bonus schemes.

Above all, you will get to work with inspirational charity clients and like-minded colleagues who are passionate about making the world a better place.

  • Desire to provide exceptional customer service and an ability to build a strong rapport with clients.
  • Willingness to take ownership of projects and take responsibility for quality outputs.
  • Ability to supervise, train and develop junior members of the team.
  • Flexibility – the ability to travel to client sites both within and outside Bristol, with occasional overnight stays.

Salary & Benefits

  • Salary c. £40,000 (dependent on experience).
  • 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays.
  • 35 hour working week (part-time hours considered, minimum 0.8 FTE).
  • Flexible start/finish times, subject to core hours.

  • Employee Assistance Programme (free counselling, advice and support).
  • 24/7 GP consultations and prescription service.
  • Wellbeing hub with online resources (stress-management, sleep, exercise, nutrition).

  • Commitment to CPD, training, development and coaching.
  • Professional membership subscriptions paid.
