We are pleased to be working with a key client to recruit for an Audit & Accounts Senior in their Manchester office within a prestigious UK wide accountancy firm. The role is suitable for an ACCA/ACA qualified (or finalist) accountant looking to join a high profile Top 20 accountancy firm with multiple career paths.

This award winning top tier firm of chartered accountants support a wide range of clients from a network of offices around the UK. The firm is renowned for its audit work in particular and is looking to strengthen and expand its current audit team to increase it's delivery capacity.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a qualified accountancy professional with practice based audit experience to join a forward thinking firm at an exciting time in its development. Based out of their Manchester office and reporting to the Audit & Accounts Manager, your role would entail providing a high quality compliance service to a wide-ranging portfolio of clients spanning Greater Manchester and beyond.

This progressive accountancy firm delivers a variety of services to corporate and SME entities, including a number of internationally owned companies. The Audit & Accounts Senior job has excellent potential for progression in the future.

Key responsibilities include;

  • Taking supervisory responsibility for a team of Audit & Accounts staff both in the field and in the office
  • Attending post audit client meetings
  • Assisting with the planning & completion of audits for a wide and varied client portfolio including SME's and larger enterprises
  • Managing deadlines and workload
  • Year end accounts work
  • Corporate Tax returns
  • Mentoring and supporting a team of more Junior accountants
  • Client communication via both phone and email, including the writing of reports

The ideal candidate for the role will either be ACA/ACCA qualified, or suitably qualified by experience, with recent practical 'hands-on' audit experience gained within a practice environment. You might currently be working for a smaller regional practice seeking an opportunity to develop your experience and skill set, or a Semi Senior with lots of experience looking for that next step. 

You will be a well organised individual, able to multitask and prioritise a workload effectively, with strong numerical skills and excellent attention to detail. This is a client-facing role so excellent communication skills and the confidence to liaise with people at all levels will be required. You will need to have had a reasonable amount of Audit exposure and be comfortable planning and leading audits.
