Are you looking for that clear pathway to becoming a Partner? Are you an AUDIT RI already? Are you ready to put forward your application for RI status?

This one opportunity we are asked to recruit for is for a leading firm of Accountants and Business Advisers operating across the UK, Ireland and the Nordics. They have a wide network of employees and an abundance of inspiring opportunities to join one of their many offices. As a top ten accountancy firm in the UK and one of largest SME practices. Based from Burnley working from home options, a clear progression route to Partner, or this may suit someone already operating at Partner level and looking for a new challenge.

You would be joining a local office of circa 26 colleagues and also working closely with our wider North West region as a key member of the leadership team. You will work in partnership with our Office Managing Partner to drive the success of the Burnley team and our Audit service line.

  • Oversee all aspects of client engagement assuming overall responsibility for allocating work and ensuring client service is maintained at a high level

  • Manage the end to end audit process, including budgets and timescales. You will be analysing complex business situations to identify key issues and priorities

Of course you will be ACA/ACCA/CA or equivalent qualified 

  • Experience of auditing clients within a variety of industries

  • Proven capability of managing a large portfolio of clients and their audits

  • Experience coaching and mentoring a team

  • Ideally RI status (although we can support you in qualifying for this)

Salary circa £90,000 to £120,000 depending on your experience and at what level you will join at. 

But here is the thing….

You will also know that if you are working as an Audit Director, your skills and experiences are in demand. How many times are you messaged on LinkedIn about jobs from recruiters? All the time no doubt. 

The real service that I offer that offers the most value is the Perfect Opportunity Job Hunt.

Rather than you searching online to find the agency that is advertising something you might be interested in. If you contact me, we speak and I listen to exactly you want in your next move.

  • I go and confidentially find ALL the opportunities that fit your criteria. Your details are not shared with anyone. You then review and select the one to look into.

  • You don’t have to deal with 3 or 4 different recruiters, who are each offering one or two opportunities each.

  • There is no pressure selling working this way with us. We are not in competition trying to convince you that the job we have got is perfect for you, you make that call.

Because I am connected to all the key decisions makers in every business in the Northwest, I can make those approaches, without sharing your name or employer, and identify and shortlist a selection of the best opportunities that match exactly what you are looking for. You review and decide which we go forward with.

So, although I must advertise a certain number of roles out there, to give you an idea of what I recruit for. But if you don’t find exactly what you are looking (which let’s be fair most job adverts and pretty hard to get a clear idea on), then reach out to me.

Absolute discretion

Your CV or application is always absolutely confidential. By applying you are not losing control. The next stage of the process is for us to talk about what you want, what you don’t want, and for me to tell you whether I can help. If I can’t, I’ll be upfront about it.
