Jobs Business Advisory Manager/Senior Manager (Exclusive Role)

Location: Auckland
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC10140

Our consultancy has built strong long-standing relationships with the top 20% of the fastest growing Chartered Accounting firms in New Zealand.

This has been an amazing experience, and, among many other things over the last two decades, we have learned that in most cases the fastest expanding practices are also the leading innovators at the forefront of the sector.

What separates these firms from the pack, is their bold vision for the future and clear focus on where the accounting profession is headed.

Perhaps, the most important indicator that best defines the success of an employer in today's job market is the ability to attract and retain top talent and maintain consistently low staff turnover. 

So, today we want to tell you about a rare opportunity to join one of our exclusive clients that scores highly on all statements above. 

Our client is often described as one of the key players who set the standards in their segment of the Chartered Accounting arena. The partners have built a brand associated with industry-leading methodologies, innovation and progressive thinking. The firm’s clients are equally successful and many of them are at the forefront of their respective industries. 

We are looking for an accomplished Business Advisory Manager or a Senior Manager to join our client’s leadership team in a key role. 

Based in a vibrant part of Auckland, the role has strong focus on high-end Advisory projects. The successful candidate will work closely alongside and report to one of the partners in the firm. 

This is a newly created role that requires the talents of a technically well-rounded managerial professional with sound grounding in all aspect of business services and extensive experience with value-add assignments in the SME market.  

Some of the key duties and responsibilities defining this role include but are not limited to:

  • strong advisory focus (extensive advisory experience is a must for this role!)
  • team management
  • strategic and operational management responsibilities (including ad hoc projects and asks, as and when required)
  • managing relationships with key clients
  • working closely alongside the directors and assisting them with a wide range of initiatives
  • be part of the strategic decision-making process in the firm

To be successful in this role, you will need a proven track record at a Manager or Senior Manager level, preferably within a larger medium sized firm.

You will be responsible for a portfolio of entrepreneurial clients, mostly in the mid-market segment. 

This means that you will need to have extensive experience with strategy, planning, business improvement, budgeting, forecasting, financial modelling, business valuations, mergers and acquisitions, due diligence and other value-add projects. 

In this role you will be attending Boards meeting at client organisations and act as a trusted Financial/Business advisor to these Boards.  

We are looking for a managerial professional with solid experience in the segment and good understanding of the dynamics and specific challenges within the SME/entrepreneurial sector.

Naturally, at this level you will be CA/CPA qualified with a minimum of 6-7 years current experience in the field.

This opportunity will be particularly appealing to a high-performing business advisory professional currently working in a larger mid-tier firm and looking for more variety, new professional challenges and higher earning potential (both short and longer term).


The remuneration package on offer is above-market and consists of a generous base salary, car park, bonus and other perks. This offer is available through SCI in Auckland.
