Job Description

Who we are:

Galloways is the fastest growing accounting firm in Sussex. Operating from multiple offices across the county we look after small, medium and large businesses, charities and individuals. We have over 100 people with specialist expertise across all areas of accountancy, taxation, and financial planning.

We run our firm like a business, just like our clients do. Yes, we are accountants, but we want to be successful, have great careers, enjoy our work and make money, and we make that happen by working with like-minded people.

What we do:

We help businesses and individuals manage their financial and compliance matters, as well as trying to help them make or save money. Accountants like talking about what they do (don't we all?), but every client story starts with their specific problem or requirement that needs addressing. That's why the most important thing that we do is listen...

We provide the full array of specialist accountancy, taxation, payroll, advisory and financial planning services that you would expect in a firm of our size - from complex group audits to sole trader accounts preparation. We embrace the digital world through our cloud accounting capabilities, but equally recognise the importance of face-to-face and empathetic advice.

We work with:

Our firm has been in existence for a very long time (1870 we think). The only relevance our longevity has is that it has enabled us to build a fabulous and diverse client base in Sussex. We are pretty certain that we don’t have many clients that date back to our beginnings, but we have many family and business customers that we have been looking after for many generations, and you can be confident that we plan to continue to do the same for generations to come.

Work with us:

We are a group of great people helping even greater clients manage their financial affairs. We offer the study support, market rate salary and competitive benefits package that you’d expect, but what differentiates us is our ambitious growth plans for the future. Growth means limitless opportunity for you to develop, grow and build your career as you want to – all with the support of a group of like-minded people in a great part of the country.

We recognise that most accountants fall into the profession and thus we are simply looking for people who are able to demonstrate a high level of numeracy, the intellectual ability required to pass demanding professional examinations, an eagerness to work hard and the personal skills with which to build effective relationships with both clients and colleagues. Everything else can be picked up along the way if you are willing to put in the effort.
