Client Manager - Business Advisory

Client Manager - Business Advisory


(Ref SC8416) Albany area - A role with a difference - A mix of advisory projects and client management - Award-wining culture, impressively low staff turnover - Above market offer, contact SCI to find out more..


The firm is often described as one of the employers of choice in Auckland. The partners have embraced strong values and a philosophy based on putting people first.

One of the most noticeable aspects of this sought-after organisation (when you read the various performance indicators) is the low staff turnover, probably one of the lowest in the industry. This indicator alone is often considered by recruiters and job seekers as the most important factor for a successful and rewarding long-term employment.

The people working here are proud of their work environment and what the firm has achieved in terms of professional standards and client satisfaction rates. The professional development and training opportunities offered here are second to one.

The diverse client base and the variety of professionally stimulating assignments mean that professionals at all levels are exposed to projects involving not only traditional client accounting and tax compliance but also a broad spectrum of special projects (Including business improvement, valuations, financial modelling  and due diligence to mention a few).

The partners are widely recognised as experts in their respective fields of technical expertise and are early adopters of new trends in the accounting profession and cutting edge technology.

Having worked with this highly successful organisation for a number of years (and having appointed many of their staff over the years) we find that the firm tends to attract some of the highest calibre job seekers looking for a role closer to home, without having to compromise on their professional aspirations.

Based in a handy North Shore location with easy parking and in close proximity to various amenities, this newly established role offers work scope and variety within an enjoyable and positive work environment. This opportunity will be even more appealing to you, if you live on the Shore and are looking to improve your life style.

So what are the most important aspects defining this role?

Your daily duties and responsibilities will involve:

  • Preparation of periodic accounts
  • Tax compliance
  • Monthly reporting
  • Budgeting & forecasting
  • Managing a portfolio of key clients and workflow associated with it
  • Assisting senior managers and partners with special projects
  • Reviewing work performed by less experienced team members (less than 40% of the role)
  • Various ad hoc operational and strategic tasks as required

So who will fit our client's brief for this role?  You have outstanding interpersonal and client facing skills and ability to work well as part of a team. Your strong systems skills and hands-on experience with Excel, Xero and various other accounting software packages will make you a strong contender for this role.

Previous reviewing and supervisory experience is essential. Good potential to advance your career further would be seen as a definitive advantage. Partnership aspiration, while not a must, will be well received, as the role will certainly offer this option in the medium term.

So what is on offer for this role? A competitive base salary, easy parking and comprehensive office and administrative support + professional CA membership fees paid. Our client's standard work week is 37.5 hours and the firm offers a degree of flexibility that often appeals to professionals working for Big 4 or larger mid-tier firms in the city who have young families.

To be considered for this rare opportunity to join this sought-after firm, please contact Steve on (09) 962 5687 / 021 286 1114 or email your CV in strict confidence to quoting reference number sc8416. Alternatively you can apply online.
