Job Description:
Let's talk about the job
If you enjoy working on a wide-reaching range of projects that will help businesses and communities flourish, you'll fit right in. Here are some things you can expect from this Audit Assistant Manager role.

Making quality second nature. This means doing what's right even when no one's looking. The work that you will do has a major impact on our clients and our firm. We pride ourselves on the high-level standards we have for the work that we do.

Own your own work.
  • you'll be trusted to oversee all aspects of audit planning, fieldwork and completion for a portfolio of clients
  • you'll prepare or review work papers and drafts of the financial statements
  • you'll allocate work to other members of the audit team, ensuring associates understand their responsibilities and have received excellent on-the-job coaching and that any areas for development are identified
  • you'll produce commercial management reports, specifically drafting sections of the report to management

Be a part of a team you'll work as part of the team, leading on site audit teams, effectively providing a hands on compliance and/or advisory role that exceeds client expectations

Take responsibility. You will be responsible for delivering high quality audits. We have an ongoing and open feedback system which will allow you to continuously monitor your performance against expectations.

Build your brand. Your personal development plan will help you grow your skills. And you'll be able to shape your career within your team or by moving across our business or going on secondments in the UK and across our global network of member firms. You'll also enjoy a competitive salary and a flexible benefits package designed to meet your individual needs.

The minimum criteria
You'll be fully qualified (ACA, CA, ACCA or equivalent) with the ability to lead external audits

Skills to set you apart
Here are a few more skills we are looking for. Don't worry if you don't tick every box. It's important for us to support you in your role and help you to develop along the way.
  • you'll ideally have experience of leading complex audits and delegating workloads accordingly
  • you'll ideally have previous experience of auditing mid-market clients
  • you'll be comfortable using audit software and Microsoft packages

Do you care about the same things we do?
We have six values we work by. When we meet, we'll want you to show us how they're important to you, too.
Collaboration: We work together, share ideas and always make time to help each other out.
Leadership: Everyone has the chance to lead their own projects.
Excellence: Quality is central to our purpose. We love what we do, and it shows. We sweat the details. We see things through, no matter how tricky.
Agility: The world moves quickly. To keep up, we stay flexible - changing approaches, changing projects, working offline, online, together and alone to get things done.
Respect: A given, of course: we value each other and our clients. We listen, we understand, we care.
Responsibility: The decisions we make and advice we give affects people's lives and livelihoods. We take that seriously and always do well by doing what's right.

Share ideas and profits
Unlike most firms, we're also a shared enterprise. So when the firm does well, everyone does well by taking home a share of the profits. Of course, to get those profits, we need to share ideas and share responsibility for our work, too.

Bring your whole self
Now you've seen our values, it shouldn't be a surprise that we're creating a respectful, open, diverse place to work. Building an inclusive culture, where we value difference and respect our colleagues, is not just the right thing to do, it helps our people to perform at the best of their ability and realise their potential.
"We are committed to making sure that the opportunities within our firm are equally accessible for everyone - regardless of background or gender." Dave Dunckley, CEO

There's more to life than work
Families, children, sports, night classes...the things you do and the people you're with outside work matter. They can inspire, motivate and energise you. Inside the office and out. So if you'd like to work flexibly, let us know. We're happy to look at flexible working options for all our roles, and we'll always do our best to keep your work and life in balance.
