Jobs Intermediate/Early Senior Accountant – Business Services (Exclusive Role) 

Location: Auckland - Auckland CBD
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC11786

Our client is a young, forward-thinking chartered accounting practice that has been setting the standards for their segment of the professional accounting services sector since its inception.  

The firm's name is associated with high-quality solutions and their diverse client base includes:

  • high-net-worth individuals with multiple businesses 
  • complex trusts
  • investment funds
  • high-tech start-ups 
  • larger groups with complex structures (with multi-million-dollar annual turnover)

We have a new opportunity for a well-rounded tertiary qualified business services accountant with 1-3 years current experience in the field. 

The role has strong client focus, and the successful candidate will gradually take full responsibility for a portfolio of key clients and the workflow associated with it. 

You will work directly with a range of entities across all industries and be exposed to a broad spectrum of client assignments. 


Here are some of the key points our client has highlighted in the brief for this role

  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills
  • Sound experience with Xero, MYOB AO and Banklink
  • Good grounding in financial accounting, monthly management reporting and tax compliance
  • Previous experience with sizeable and complex investment portfolios
  • Ability to work well as part of a team and tackle ad hoc tasks and projects


Our brief for this role is somewhat broad. Effectively, we are looking for an intermediate to early senior accountant with current NZ CA experience in business services. 

We are interested in hearing from two groups of potentially suitable candidates for this role:

  1. Tertiary qualified Intermediate Business Services Accountants with 1-3 years current NZ CA experience and studying toward a full CA/or CPA designation, or
  2. Recently CA/CPA qualified strong intermediate to early senior accountants with 3-4 years current NZ CA experience

Our client offers superb offices located in a prime Auckland CBD location. The firm is an early adopter of modern technology and new trends in the sector and offers a viable alternative to larger mid-tier and Big 4 firms. 

If you are currently working in a Big 4 or a larger mid-tier firm, this role deserves your serious consideration, especially if you are after:

  • better work-life balance 
  • supportive and approachable partners (that you can talk to/and bounce ideas off daily)  
  • friendly and positive team-based work environment
  • flexible work hours and work-from-home options
  • exposure to complex/sizeable clients with annual turnover of up to $100million
  •  attractive remuneration package designed to meet the expectations of the best person for the role
  • career progression, professional development and training second to none

Alternatively, you may be working in a small to medium sized CA firm and looking for a change and exposure to new (possibly larger and more complex) clients in industries. 

If you would like to be considered for this role, please contact Steve in the first instance on (09) 962 5687 / 021 286 1114 or email your CV in confidence to or quoting reference number sc11786. Alternatively, you can apply online by clicking the APPLY NOW button.
