·         Leading brand in the CA professional services arena

·         World-class professional development

·         The viable alternative to your current role in a Big 4? Call us to find out more.


Our client has established a strong brand in the  CA professional services arena in New Zealand and globally. The firm has long and successful history and is led by business savvy partners with proven track records in their respective areas of expertise.   

Sustained growth and newly emerging opportunities for further expansion have created the need for an accomplished Manager to join the firm in a key role.

We are looking for a competent people manager with solid technical grounding in client accounting, tax and business advisory.

You will have a proven client-serving track record at a Manager level backed up by a minimum of 6-7 years current or recent NZ CA experience. 

Some commercial experience in addition to your current or recent CA experience is likely to make your candidacy for this role even stronger. 

The key competencies required at this level include but are not limited to:

·         Strong skills and experience with preparation of annual financial statements and tax compliance

·         Experience with and good understanding of monthly/management reporting

·         Proven client-servicing/relationship management experience

·         Well-rounded systems skills, experience with Xero

·         NZ IFRS reporting experience

·         Commercial credibility and proven ability to lead a team of professionals at various level

Proven people and client relationship management competencies are a must at this level. 

Our client has a young and vibrant culture that will suit an outgoing individual with a positive outlook and passion for their career development in the chartered accounting sector.

Personality fit is important, as our client takes pride in their positive team-based culture. Your varied interests outside of work, outgoing personality, strong values and involvement in your community, will make you a strong contender for this role. 

The firm has an impressive client base consisting of sizeable and complex entities, including group structures with multi-million-dollar annual turnover. 

You are likely to find this opportunity appealing, if you are currently working at a similar level within a Big 4 or a larger mid-tier firm and looking for a change of scenery and exposure to new clients, assignments and industries. 

Work scope, professionally stimulating projects, complex client structures and a friendly and positive team-based environment make this opportunity one of the highlights in the current job market.

At this level you will be CA qualified with proven client-servicing skills, preferably (but not necessarily) developed in a larger firm.

In return for your well-rounded technical skills, proven client-facing competencies and professional commitment, you will be offered an attractive remuneration package, a friendly and supportive environment and unlimited potential for further career progression, all the way to partner level. 

Salary indication: $100,000 - $145,000 per annum + car park, 5 weeks paid annual leave and other benefits.
