Jobs Senior Accountant/Client Manager – Business Services

Location: Auckland
Work Type: Permanent Full Time
Reference: SC9829

Our client is a reputable and well-established chartered accounting firm based in the wider Central Auckland area. The firm can best be described as stable, with high professional standards and some of the lowest staff turnover rates in the industry. 

Over the years the firm has established a reputation for their high professional standards and a friendly and relaxed team culture. 

Our client is always on the lookout for articulate, technically well-rounded senior business services professionals. Having gone through a staff planning sessions with the practice Directors recently, we have identified a need for an accomplished senior accountant to join their friendly team.   

We are looking for a CA or CPA qualified senior business services accountant with a minimum of 4-5 years current NZCA experience in client accounting and business advisory. 

Naturally at this level, you will have solid experience with year-end financial reporting, management accounting and tax compliance and well-developed systems skills. The role is client-facing and 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.  

Some of the key aspects defining the role include but are not limited to:

  • Preparation of 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, flexible and conducive to work-life balance. The directors are approachable and down-to-earth.

This opportunity is likely to appeal to a balanced individual looking for a stable, family-like environment. You are likely to have 4-5 years BAS experience in a larger mid-tier firm and looking for a client-focused role (the role does not involve any team supervision/management). 

If you are looking for a balanced environment with a degree of flexibility and autonomy and top-notch professional standards, this role should be on top of your list.
