Senior Accountant and Client Manager
A key role within a small firm that takes a 'whole job' approach to its clients, the Senior will undertake all related work for a portfolio of key clients - including accounts preparation, VAT, tax returns and tax planning, advice on business structure and development and occasional project or audit as required.
This is a small yet agile business with a strong and loyal client base that see their accountants as advisers and business partners rather than pure number crunchers. Clients are typically local SMEs in the £1m-£15m turnover range. Culturally, the firm puts client service at the top of its list, whilst maintaining a relaxed and friendly manner.
An ideal candidate for this position would be an experienced senior accountant with post qualified experience in general practice. You will be confident in dealing with a wide variety of work and professional both in the office and in your dealings with clients. With experience of managing a portfolio of clients (in full or in part) you will be organised and capable of meeting deadlines, effectively managing workflow and more junior staff on relevant jobs.
The variety of the role, as well as the level of responsibility and scope for personal impact, are its key benefits and the successful candidate will be able to use this post as a strong platform for development into a senior management role, and eventually to Partnership if desired.
