Audit Senior - Elstree

Audit? It's just looking at spreadsheets isn't it?. . . . . Okay, so yes there are spreadsheets and lots of them but deep down, like us, you love them, and know there is so much more to audit than a great VLOOKUP.

You would be joining a growing 8 Partner, 50 strong flexible working bunch and a handful of office fish. Some good news, you wouldn't be the only 'newbie'! Due to continued growth and internal promotions the audit team are looking for 2 ambitious Audit Seniors to join the Partner lead team, made up of Directors, Managers, Seniors and Semi-Seniors.

To clarify when we say ambitious, we mean it! If you have your mind set on Partner, we have the resources and training structure in place to help make that happen.

As with any job we think there are a few things that would help you succeed from the start, these include:

Being ACA or ACCA qualified

Ambition- we are looking for a future leader and would really like to speak to you if you are keen to progress within a forward-thinking practice

Willingness to learn - Just because you are qualified, the learning doesn't stop. Watching the Managers, Directors and Partners communicate how they manage the WIP and plan time will put you in good stead

Audit experience - bit of an obvious one, but being a smaller practice someone with experience gained within a practice environment is crucial

Accounts & Tax experience- around 30% of your time will be spent preparing financial accounts and corporate tax computations for review. You will need to be technically up to date in these areas

IT skills - in a world of automation you are no doubt comfortable working with a whole variety of systems including all the mastery that Excel is capable of. You would be working with ProAudit, Xero, Quickbooks, CCH and Digita here too

Strong Technical skills - up to date knowledge of UK financial reporting standards

Communication skills- not just the ability to delegate work, motivate a team, deliver feedback to Managers on job statuses and put professional emails together. We also need you to be able to listen too, to feedback on yourself in 360 reviews, any client concerns or queries as well as information from Managers, Directors and Partners

Commercial acumen- what does this really mean? In this case, the ability to really add value to a client and spot cross selling opportunities

A driving licence and access to a car - due to our location and where our audits are (all relatively local, apart from one in Wales) having a driving licence and access to a car is pretty essential

What you need to know about us:

8 Partners, 50+ staff

Based in Elstree

Flexible working and working from home

Award winning training and development

IIP Gold employer

London salary

Fruity Monday's

Pizza Friday's

Discounted gym membership

Great benefits

Fancy dress Fridays (not really its dress down, just checking you are still reading)

If you feel you would be suitable for this role, or know anyone that would be, please apply direct or contact Danny Brown @ AJ Chambers.
