Jobs Senior Accountant – Business Advisory Services

Location: Auckland - Auckland CBD
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC11774

This high-profile chartered accounting and advisory firm with long history in New Zealand and international presence offers the full range of accounting, tax and business advisory services to a broad spectrum of entities across all segments of the economy. 

The firm's clients vary widely and many of them are subsidiaries of substantial overseas business groups with multi-million-dollar turnover. 

This role represents a mix of statutory and management reporting, tax compliance and client advisory. 

Some of the main duties and responsibilities include:

  • preparation of financial statements
  • tax compliance and advisory
  • IFRS reporting
  • budgeting & forecasting
  • managing a portfolio of key clients
  • managing own workflow
  • supervising and guiding junior and intermediate team members
  • assisting client with business advice
  • providing clients with advice on systems and troubleshooting/assisting clients with issues related to accounting software
  • various other ad hoc responsibilities. 

In addition to the essential technical competencies in client accounting and tax, this role requires exceptional verbal and written communication skills and ability to manage daily client relationship with key clients.

The diverse nature of the firm's clients means exposure to a wide variety of technical areas and world class opportunities for continued professional development and career growth. 

We are looking for a CA or CPA qualified or nearly qualified professional with a minimum of 3-4 years NZCA experience in the field. Some of the firm's clients are quite large and complex, which makes the requirement for IFRS experience within a larger firm essential for this role. 

Perhaps you are a senior accountant with a smaller mid-sized (3-6 partner) firm and looking to step up and join one of the leaders in the sector? This opportunity can be just that perfect next step in your career.  

You will be part of a friendly and supportive team environment where individual needs and expectations are equally as important as the overall success of the practice.  

Our client is a leader in the professional accounting and business advisory services arena and offers career progression and professional development second to none. Needless to say, you will be exposed to high-end compliance and advisory assignments for a range of sizeable and complex businesses. 

The firm has modern offices located in the heart of Auckland City and makes good use of the latest technology and trends in the accounting profession.
