A unique opportunity has arisen to join a small Chester based accountancy firm as it moves along a journey of growth. This Tax Semi Senior Job in Cheshire is ideal for an AAT qualified or ACA/ACCA part qualified Tax Accountant looking to pursue a career working in Practice.

Our client envisages the right candidate to be someone with a thirst for knowledge and a minimum of 2 years’ experience of working within a Public Practice accountancy firm.
