About the firm

Our client is a high-performing professional services organisation that operates in the same space as most main-stream chartered accounting firms. However, this is not a traditional accounting firm and has a different business model.

Due to sustained growth and an increasing demand for a client-experience management focused role,  the opportunity has arisen for an articulate professional to join one of our client's offices in New Zealand. 

The firm has a long and successful history and boasts a diverse SME client base. Their typical clients turnover $5million to $30million annually and operate across a broad spectrum of industry sectors, including manufacturing, construction, wholesale, distribution and various trades to name a few.
