Audit Manager - Top 50 firm
Are you an Audit Manager from a small or medium sized firm looking to join a larger Top 50 firm to get a name on your CV and work with larger clients, in an audit based position? Are you also looking to achieve the kind of work life balance you would get and friendly atmosphere of a smaller firm? Managing a portfolio of clients with GRF £500k, you will work on many of the firms largest and most prestigious clients (with turnovers to £300m), including many property clients, as well as international companies and complex groups. Your role will be mixed 90% audit with 10% of your time spent on accounts and advisory based projects, including corporate finance work. Your clients will be from a wide range of sectors, many will be listed and have an international aspect and you will work with many experts in their field which will greatly improve your technical and business advisory skills.
To be considered for this new position you must be a qualified ACA or ACCA with post qualification experience and currently be working for a good quality small or medium sized practice firm and be looking to upgrade to a larger firm. Or you may be from a larger firm background and looking to join a smaller firm to achieve a better work life balance and better progression. You must currently be working in an audit based role, and now be looking to work for a firm where you will be given more opportunities to develop your technical skills and increase your levels of responsibility. You will also work in a friendly and supportive office environment where you will be given every opportunity to learn new skills and develop your career. You must also be very strong technically, with knowledge of FRS 102, paperless audits, and ideally IFRS and AIM listed clients (although training will be provided if you don’t have experience in these areas). Experience of a range of software packages would be an advantage as would strong report writing skills.
This high quality independent and very traditional firm which has been established for over 80 years rewards its staff for their hard work and provides them with varied and challenging roles. The firm has been winning clients from larger firms for a number of years and so can offer a client base to rival a Top 10 / Top 20 firm. This exceptional opportunity is perfect for an ambitious ACA / ACCA Audit Manager who wants to work on some very large and technical clients, but still operate in a smaller and friendlier office environment, with a better work life balance on offer than a larger firm.
