We are delighted to be working with this high quality independent firm of Accountants to identify a confident practice trained accountant to join a busy team in a lead role working on a commercial portfolio of clients.

This role has arisen as the key part of a succession plan and as such the lead director is keen to hire someone who would be interested in buying equity in the future to enable retirement.

My client is looking for a hands on individual who enjoys client facing and adding value through advisory as well as compliance work. Staff supervision is available if required.

The salary advertised is broad as my client could hire from 1 years post qualified experience to 5 years+ and the salary will reflect the level of competency in adding value to clients. You will ideally be ACA or ACCA but strong QBE’s will be considered.

  • Marketing a cloud Xero focused solution for clients
  • Preparing Limited Company and LLP accounts
  • Preparing Sole Trader and Partnership accounts
