Jobs Audit Manager to Senior Manager with a view to Equity Directorship (Exclusive Auckland-based Role)

Location: Auckland - Auckland Central
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC10479

Our client is a high-profile Chartered Accounting and Business Advisory firm with a sizeable audit division. The firm has long and successful history in the professional services sector in New Zealand and global reach. Having worked with this modern and forward-thinking practice for more than two decades, we have placed many professionals at different levels in their various divisions. 

We have a new Auckland-based opportunity for an Audit Manager or a Senior Manager to join our client in a key role within the Audit practice. The role represents a mix of team and client portfolio management and offers unlimited potential for career progression to Partner level. 

Reporting directly to various audit partners (depending on client engagements) some of your key duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Reviewing and managing teams and client engagements
  • Assisting your team with complex technical issues relating to external audit
  • Working on a range of audit and advisory assignments, including internal audit/internal controls/risk management
  • Assessing and adjusting control review programmes 
  • Participating in and managing special projects such as analytical reviews and due diligence
  • Driving best practice
  • Assisting with the design of new processes
  • Providing training and other assistance as required
  • Assisting the directors with various strategic and operations initiatives 

You will be one of several managers with overall responsibilities for the entire (sizeable) audit team in the firm. Due to the team structure and the pool system in place, you will work with all of the firm’s clients. This means that you will not have a strong focus on any specific industry. On the contrary, this the role can best be described as generalist role, a role that will provide with exposure to a broad spectrum of industry sectors. 

We are looking for a CA or CPA qualified audit professional with a minimum of 6-7 years current NZCA experience in external audit. Naturally, at this level you will have a proven team and client management track record. 

The varied nature of the role requires a professional that has been exposed to different entities across many industries. It is unlikely that this role will suit you if your experience has been predominantly with focus on one specific industry. 

The successful candidate is likely to have strong technical background, broad work scope and previous experience with IFRS reporting. Excellent written/report-writing and verbal communication and client-servicing skills are essential for this role. 

Last but not least, our client is in succession planning mode and we are looking for an aspiring senior managerial professional who will be willing and able to step up into a Partner role in the not-so-distant future. If the above summary is of interest to you and you believe that you meet the selection criteria, we would love to tell you more about this attractive opportunity.
