Calling all ACA or ACCA qualified auditors with 3-5 years UK practice experience: my client (Top-50) is keen to hire someone like you to help you realise your potential both professionally & financially.

Following the recent economic downturn, this Top-50 accountancy practice has emerged with flying colours having consistently offered a terrific level of service to their existing client base and on the back of it, winning a substantial amounts of new business via numerous recommendations. As a result, my client feels the need to hire an accomplished and high calibre ACA or ACCA qualified Assistant Audit Manager.

Joining a hard-working and high achieving team, you shall be in great company to challenge yourself further and push on even more in your career.

This position will initially involve handling a sizeable client portfolio (can be up to £500k fees) whilst providing an excellent level of service to follow on from the good work that others in this organisation do.

Interestingly, this will also include business advisory work in addition to regular compliance services.

The client base will consist of owner managed businesses and subsidiaries of overseas companies - including aspects of group accounting. The activities of client companies is diverse and typical clients have turnovers ranging from £1m through to £50m.

Internally, managers are also expected to contribute to the day-to-day running of the office along with the management and training of staff.

As a senior representative of the firm, you will be exposed to preparing and presenting new business pitches for the firm - thus, presenting an excellent opportunity to hone the skills of the partner they are ultimately hoping you will be!

Upon being appointed this post, your typical duties will include:

Managing audit assignments.

Allocating work, briefing and controlling the team, and ensuring compliance with timetables.

Arranging, planning and attending client account finalisation meetings.

Coming in at Assistant Manager level, it would be expected that you would be a hungry and ambitious individual who through their hard work and efforts, will want to progress quickly to Manager level and beyond.

Whilst there would be annual appraisals, outstanding work will not go amiss and promotions will not need to wait for a specific date to materialise. Working in a meritocratic environment, you shall duly be acknowledged for the good work you do (both professionally and financially), and ultimately, the person coming into this role will be viewed upon as being one of the future leaders within the firm.

This role would therefore appeal to those individuals who don't just want to be part of the crowd in large bureaucratic organisations, but rather, be in a medium-sized environment, be kept technically and thus, professionally challenged whilst being able to realistically reach the top and ultimately, be your own boss!

My client is keen to receive CV applications sooner rather than later, and whilst they are recruiting for the right reasons (growth & expansion and not to replace individuals who have left), they will certainly move quickly upon identifying the correct person for this post.
