Job Description

We are looking for a motivated candidate to join our sociable team.

Your role will be approximately 80% Audit and 20% Accounts, so we’re looking for someone with experience in both areas but who wants to focus more on Audit, who has been working in practice for between 1 and 2 years.

You will gain an in-depth knowledge of UK and international clients as part of this team of 13, working on a variety of exciting clients with real career opportunities.

You can expect from us:

  • A competitive salary, with full study support to complete your professional qualification
  • Lots of social, fun events and charity activities
  • Commitment on your coaching and personal development
  • Company benefits and 23 days of paid leave, plus all public holidays

What we would like from you:

  • AAT finalist (level 3 or 4)
  • Between 1 and 2 years’ experience in public practice working with corporate clients in a mixed audit and accountancy role
  • Experience of planning and completing audit and accounts preparation assignments
  • Strong IT skills, with CaseWare experience a definite advantage

Want some more detail?

You’ll be providing audit and financial reporting services to our diverse corporate and entrepreneurial clients. The role is 80% in-house although a large part of that time will be spent dealing directly with clients:

  • Working solely or as part of a team on audits and accounts preparation assignments for small, medium & large companies
  • Preparation of statutory financial statements
  • Preparation of working papers
  • Audit of financial statements
  • Review of audit and accounts work undertaken by junior members of the team
