Jobs Business Services Client Manager (Exclusive Role)

Location: Auckland - Central/City fringe
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC10039

Our client is a highly regarded chartered accounting firm based in a handy Central Auckland location. The practice has an increasing share of their segment of the SME market.  

Over the years the firm has established a reputation for low staff turnover and high employee satisfaction rates.

Sustained growth and internal team dynamics have combined to create an opportunity for an articulate business services professional with well-rounded technical competencies to join this friendly and supportive team.  

We are looking for an accomplished senior business services accountant or a client manager with a minimum of 4-5 years current NZ CA experience in the field. 

At this level, you will have solid experience with year-end financial reporting, management accounts and tax returns and well-developed systems skills. This is a client-facing role that works closely alongside one of the directors in the firm.

The successful candidate will work with some of the firm's larger and more complex SME clients operating across various industries including property, investment, construction, retail, manufacturing and others.  

This role is varied and hard to define in a brief job ad. Here is a list of some of the key duties and responsibilities:

  • Preparation of year-end financial statements
  • Monthly/management reporting
  • Tax compliance (filing various tax returns such as Income Tax, GST, PAYE, FBT etc.)
  • Budgeting & Forecasting
  • Advising and assisting clients with various systems issues/training/trouble shooting, etc
  • Various other ad hoc duties and responsibilities

The firm's culture can best be described as relaxed, positive and family friendly. The partners are approachable and down-to-earth. This is a flexible environment where people use their professional judgement. The main criteria to assess performance here is based on the ability of individual team members to deliver results within agreed targets and deadlines. Therefore, you will enjoy freedom and plenty of flexibility around how you structure your days.  

This opportunity is likely to appeal to a balanced individual looking for a stable, family-like environment with plenty of professional challenges and stimulating projects. 

Our client has stressed the need for a self-managed professional in this role. So, we are looking for a competent professional with sound experience in the key technical areas mentioned above.
