About the firm

Our client is a medium-sized chartered accounting firm with international connections and long history in the CA arena in Auckland.

The firm is well established, financially stable and boasts a sizeable client base. Among many other perks to work here, our client offers industry-leading employee wellness benefits, flexible work hours and 2-days-per-week work from home.

Sustained growth and internal team dynamics have created the opportunity for a high-end senior business services accountant or a client manager 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 clients. The role has people development focus and will suit a competent business services professional looking for an opportunity with a substantial team management aspect.

In addition to your people and performance management focus, you will work with a wide range of SME clients. This role will provide you with broad technical scope including financial reporting, tax compliance, management reporting and client advisory.

Depending on your experience at the upper end of the range for this role, you will be responsible for managing the team workflow for a group of key entities.

The role will provide the right candidate with unlimited potential to progress their career at their own pace all the way to equity director level for the aspiring.  

Your proven financial accounting, management reporting and tax compliance experience to date will come handy in this multi-faceted and professionally stimulating role. Most importantly, however, we are looking for a professional passionate about developing people and keen to focus on team and client management in their next role.

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 at least 10-15 or more staff. 

This is a hands-on role within a cloud-based 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 work ethics and passion about people and delivering the best possible outcomes for your clients will make you a strong contender for this key role.  


What is on offer

  • Salary: $95,000 - $135,000 depending on experience
  • Industry-leading employee wellness program 
  • Modern offices in a prime central Auckland location
  • supportive team environment.
  • industry-leading training and professional development
  • flexible working hours and 1-2 days per week work-from-home options
  • progress your career at your own pace all the way to Director level if that is your aspiration
  • a great long-term role that will provide you with flexibility and professional challenge in equal measure, if equity directorship is not important to you
