What the role involves:
You will be a part of our audit team, providing an excellent service to a large range of corporate clients and business owners, of which circa 75% of the role will be working on statutory audits.

You will also have the opportunity to support our corporate finance team with live projects.

You will start to have client contact from day one as well as working closely with corporate tax colleagues. You will also have responsibility for training and developing less experienced members of the audit team as well as identifying ways in which we can improve quality and efficiency.
As your experience grows, you will be able to take responsibility for smaller audits and reporting direct to Responsible Individuals. Beyond that, we expect progression to be to Assistant Manager, Manager and beyond if this is how you wish your career to unfold.

Your development
We provide a complementary range of training opportunities to ensure that you maximise your potential in areas such as becoming a trusted adviser, how to network, presentation skills etc with opportunities for progression around the firm. These will comprise personal effectiveness as well as your technical skills.
We have quarterly performance review conversations to ensure your development is on track. You will also have a buddy and opportunity for a mentor.
We also encourage you to get involved in wider firm initiatives and have your say on how we can progress on our journey towards being the best North-West firm of finance professionals.
