Audit & Accounts Manager - Mid tier firm
Are you a small firm ACA / ACCA qualified Audit & Accounts Manager (or Audit Manager) looking to continue your career in a good quality and friendly mid tier practice based in a prime location in Central London? Or are you currently working in a Top 10 / 20 practice and looking to continue in an audit based role, but in a smaller firm with a better work life balance? Are you keen to work in a friendly environment with a good work life balance, with great support, training and progression opportunities to senior manager level? Based in the audit and accounts department, your role will be up to 70% audit based, with the rest of your time spent on accounts, tax and general practice assignments.

You will be responsible for managing your own portfolio of clients (C£400 - £500k); managing audits from planning to completion, managing small teams, reviewing work, giving staff appraisals and reporting directly to partners. You will also carry out a number of interesting ad hoc advisory based projects as well as new business development. Your clients will be varied and include industries such as media, property, entertainment, technology, film & TV and retail. There will also be genuine opportunities for you to progress to Senior Manager level 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 either as an Audit Manager or Audit & Accounts 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.
