Harvey John Accountancy Recruitment


£28000 - £35000 per annum

This position is for an accountancy firm that are going through very positive change. With a structural reorganisation underway, this is an opportunity to join in a firm in a brand new role, not filling someone's shoes!

Based on the outskirts of Brighton, with plenty of easy access parking and an open plan office, this is an independent, personable firm of a substantial size. With new clients calling in daily and year on year growth, this is certainly the time to join them.

The position in mind

Reporting to a Manager, you will be their 'right hand man'. The Manager works closely with the Partner on a large and growing portfolio of clients and they're looking for a competent Senior that they can trust and rely on to take over some of their workload. Dealing with clients and trusted to carry out a large amount of work yourself, you're far from micro managed! You'll be responsible for:

  • Overseeing and delegating to a team of juniors
  • Reporting to and working closely with one Manager and one Partner in particular
  • Responsible for a varied workload, including accounts & tax for the Partner portfolio
  • Heavily relied on as a key member of staff, progression to Assistant Manager

The person in mind

This role would suit someone technically strong, driven, dynamic and with excellent client relationship skills. Key desirables include:

  • ACA/ACCA qualified with strong, recent, practice experience
  • Finalists are welcome to apply
  • Previous experience supervising juniors
  • Experience working closely with clients
  • Ready to hit the ground running and be a reliable member of staff for the Manager
  • Dynamic and a real presence in the office
  • Strong accounts and tax experience, knowledge of audit is desirable but not essential


The salary for this role is flexible because this is such a key hire for the firm. It is likely that you will start somewhere between £28-38k but this is expected to increase as your impact on the firm is felt!

The salary advertised should be seen as a guide and has been set by the agency.
