Workload: Technical Accounting and Advisory Assignments
Benefits: Generous package, regular training and excellent progression
Salary: £40 - £43k
Are you currently a technically strong Accounts Senior or Auditor looking to move away from Audit? Would you enjoy providing advisory services to complex and international clients?
Our client is seeking a technically focused Accounts Senior or Auditor who is looking for a more advisory role which will implement the technical recommendation from the firm (and other firms) audit division. The role offers the chance to add real value to the end of the audit process.
In a market where many firms have used technology to drive efficiencies and to reduce the cost of their service, our client made the decision to use this technology to provide a more advisory and value-add service. The work is much more interesting and fulfilling for their employees who have leading-edge technology and processes at their fingertips and are encouraged to use these to have proactive discussions with their clients.
The division is split into Outsourcing, Company Secretarial and Financial Reporting teams. The Outsourcing teams don't just ensure that the management accounts are completed but are tasked with providing relevant and useful data as well as the clear advice and interpretation that helps their clients make informed business decisions, including budgeting, forecasting and strategic planning. The Financial Reporting team uses Caseware to provide a technically excellent statutory accounting service and to take the lead on advisory projects where clients have requirements such as preparing consolidated accounts and reporting under various GAAPs, such as FRS102 and IFRS.
As a firm our client believes in enhancing the teams' knowledge of the broader economy and business world, therefore the career opportunities and staff training they offer are of an exceptional level.
