Accountant - Exclusive Role

Accountant - Exclusive Role


(Ref SC9171) Vibrant Auckland city fringe location - Established practice with impressive performance – Friendly, balanced work environment - Strong client focus – Unique opportunity, contact SCI today..

$60,000 - $85,000 depending on level & experience

  • Intermediate/Senior Accountant – Business Services & Tax Administration
  • Formal qualifications not required as long as you have the practical experience
  • This role is available exclusively through SCI..


Our client is a well-established professional services firm with enviable reputation and one of the best retention rates in the CA sector. The firm has an impressive client list consisting of larger (and mostly) complex businesses, many of them multi- entity group structures across various industry sectors.

The firm is often referred to as one of the leading experts in their specialist technical areas.  All professional staff that work here are highly competent and experienced in their respective fields.

Sustained growth and internal team dynamics have created the opportunity for a technically well-rounded strong intermediate to senior business services professional to join their friendly team.

This is a hands-on role with strong client focus that requires the talents of a highly articulate individual with well-rounded technical competencies in client accounting and tax administration and compliance.

The role represents a mix of business services (approximately 75-80%) and tax administration (approximately 20-25%) and will suit a hands-on accountant with proven client-facing skills.

Reporting to a Manager and, at times, directly to one of the partners, you will work as part of a medium-sized team of highly experienced professionals.

While you will not work with the firm’s largest clients, most of their clients are relatively sizable and complex.

You will work directly with a range of businesses, including high-net-worth individuals, group structures, property portfolios and investment funds to name a few.

Our brief for this role is broad and is aimed at attracting potentially suitable candidates at both intermediate and senior level.

A minimum of 3 years current NZ CA experience in business services is a must. Formal CA qualifications are not important, as long as you have the required practical experience.

At the upper end of the range for this role, our ideal candidate will have 4-5 years current NZ CA experience in client accounting and tax compliance.  

This is a client-facing role and we are looking for a confident communicator with outstanding verbal and written communication and client presentation skills.

It is important to point out that the role will suit a hands-on person who would not mind rolling up their sleeves and doing some processing and admin work, when required.

At the same time, you will be exposed to more complex work and professionally stimulating businesses and structures.

In addition, if you are interested in developing further, the firm can offer you opportunities to get involved in more complex assignments in the longer term. 

This is a truly unique opportunity in the current job market and it is  difficult to paint the full picture in a single job ad.

Our client has low staff turnover and personality fit is important. Traditionally, the firm has appealed to mature and balanced individuals looking for a stable, highly professional, yet flexible family-like environment.  

If you meet the above selection criteria, we would love to tell you more about this new opportunity and our client.  

Salary indication: $60k-$70k (at intermediate level) and $70k-$85k for the upper end of the range for this role.

This opportunity is available exclusively through SCI.
