Our client is a vibrant md-sized accounting and business advisory firm located in the heart of Auckland city. The practice is well-established and has a diverse client base ranging from small and medium entrepreneurial business to sizable enterprises with complex group structures.

Die to the diverse nature and the size and complexity of many of the firm’s clients, they offer a broad spectrum of services – from statutory reporting and tax compliance to insolvency, corporate finance and high-level advisory.

  • The wider client advisory area


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

1.       Business Advisory Senior Accountants/Client Managers with substantial previous exposure to value-add assignments involving the above-mentioned areas (and particularly business valuations and financial modelling). This opportunity will suit a CA/CPA qualified accounting professional who is keen to movie into a purely advisory/corporate finance type role.

2.        Corporate Finance professionals with experience in the above-mentioned areas (especially business valuations and financial modelling) who are looking for a change of scenery, a more autonomous role and a higher earning potential, without compromising on work-life balance. You may be CFA qualified or hold a bachelor’s degree in accounting, finance, economics, or similar. Good understanding of accounting principles and particularly Balance Sheet is essential for professionals with CFA qualifications and CF experience.

Experience in a client-facing role in a professional services environment is essential for this role. Our client is open to consider professionals with relevant current experience in audit or banking as well. Good working knowledge of Xero and strong financial modelling and analytical skills are equally important. 

Our client is looking for an articulate professional, a lateral thinker and problem-solver. The role will suit a proactive, forward-focused thinker with an ability to identify issues and ways to improve consistently.  

The role offers significant upside potential for someone who wants to progress their career in the Chartered Accounting and Business Advisory arena at their own pace.
