Jobs BAS Senior Accountant with a View to Client Manager (Exclusive Role)

Location: Auckland - Auckland Central
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC10616

About the firm

Our client is a medium-sized Chartered Accounting firm with long history in the professional Accounting and Business Services arena in Auckland.

The firm is well established, financially stable and boasts a sizeable client base. Sustained growth over the past 3 years and internal team dynamics have created the opportunity for an accomplished senior business services accountant to join their team. 


About the role

This is a varied role that works alongside all partners in the firm. This means exposure to all the firm’s clients. The role is a mix of high-end compliance and advisory assignments and reviewing.  

The successful candidate will gain exposure to consulting projects progressively. 

You will work with a wide range of SME clients, assisting the partners in the firm with some of the most complex assignments and managing the workflow for a group of key entities.

The role is envisaged to evolve into Client Manager within six months. The Client Manager role will have an increasing focus on reviewing and client management and will provide the right candidate with an attractive growth potential, all the way to equity director level.  

Your proven financial accounting, management reporting and tax compliance experience to date will come handy in this multi-faceted and professionally stimulating role.  


About you

We are looking for a CA (CAANZ) or CPA qualified professional with  4-5 years+ current NZCA experience in the field. Ideally, we are looking for a professional with experience in a firm with 2 or more partners and 10-15 or more staff. 

This is a hands-on role within a practice that takes pride in the quality of their work papers, internal systems and high professional standards. 

Our client’s culture will suit a self-driven and proactive professional with a positive attitude and a friendly and engaging personality. 

Your ability to work well in a team environment and proven work ethics will make you a strong contender for this key role.  


What is on offer

In return for your well-rounded technical skills and experience, you will be offered a competitive salary within a supportive team environment.

The firm offers industry-leading training and professional development, flexible working hours and 1-2 days per week work-from-home options. 

Our client's sustained growth means that you can progress your career at your own pace all the way to Director level if that is your aspiration. However, if equity directorship is not part of your longer-term plan, that is fine too. This could also be seen as a great long-term role that will provide you with flexibility and professional challenge in equal measure. 

Remuneration package

  • Start salary (at Senior Accountant level): circa $95,000 per annum
  • Our client is looking for a professional able and willing to step up into a Client Manager role within 6 months
  • Salary (at Client Manager level): circa $110,000 - $115,000 per annum
