Our client is a forward-looking professional services firm with an enviable reputation for high professional standards and business success.

The partners of this high-performing practice have built their sizeable fee base on strong values and uncompromised professionalism.

Their diverse clients are used to top-notch quality solutions and value and the rate of external referrals the firm gets is impressive.

Their team culture has traditionally appealed to driven individuals with long-term aspirations in the CA sector; professionals who enjoy working as part of a vibrant and highly sociable team.

Due to current team dynamics and constantly increasing demand for the firm’s advisory services, we have a new opportunity for a CA or CPA qualified senior business services professional with a minimum of 5-6 years current NZ CA experience (a must!).

To be successful in this role you will need to have outstanding verbal and written communication skills, good grounding in compliance (including strong financial accounting and tax), client advisory and strong systems competencies and experience with Xero, MYOB and Banklink.

The key aspects defining this role include a mix of hands-on financial and management reporting, client and workflow management with a technical bent.

The mix of competencies and personal attributes essential for your success in this role include:

  • Sound experience with financial and management reporting
  • Hands-on experience and good understanding of NZ tax compliance
  • Experience with foreign investments
  • Proven ability to manage your own workflow
  • Outstanding client-facing/client relationship management skills and experience
  • Well-rounded systems skills and previous experience with advising clients on systems issues
  • outstanding written and verbal communication
  • Commercial credibility and good potential to step up in to a Manager role

While the above-mentioned technical competencies, personal attributes and professional experience are essential for this role, our client is looking for more than a compliance accountant.

This role requires the talents of a business savvy professional who can see the big picture behind the numbers.

We are looking for an articulate and positive individual with enthusiasm, high levels of energy and proven ability to work as part of a team.

The successful candidate will work with a diverse clientele of high-calibre business across many industries, most of them large with complex structures.

This is a key role that will allow the right candidate to take a decisive step on the way to becoming a Manager and part of leadership team in the firm in the medium term. For the aspiring, this role will bring real partnership prospects in the longer term.
