What can we tell you about this business?

This is a business we know extremely well and rate very highly indeed. The staff seem to agree as many have been there for a long time and love the culture that has been created by the current top team.

The current Managing Director started the business with a vision to be more than just a great accounting practice. He wanted the business to be recognised as top class business advisors valued by owners, Managing Directors and their teams. He’s succeeded and the firm now enjoys an enviable reputation in the East Midlands. The firm has not had to actively market for business as so many opportunities come to them through word of mouth and personal recommendation.

The MD takes a great deal of pride in how he runs the business and personally looks after many of its key clients. However, he now needs an additional Associate Director to help take the business to the next level. Someone who shares his vision and brings a lot more than technical accounting skills to the role.

The business owner also has an eye on his own exit strategy. One of his Associate Directors is already keen to be part of a management buyout. This new role is designed to strengthen the MBO team so you will need to be ready and able to take an equity stake when the time comes.

Who would this suit?

Today you are probably working in a large practice but are possibly frustrated by limited routes to the very top of the business. Clearly, you need to want to own your own business and will have thought through how to achieve this. We think that this a great opportunity for someone that is ambitious and sees the main prize as eventually being a major shareholder in a growing business.

Who are we looking for?
