  • Using your technical expertise and experience to advise the firm as they look to expand their audit & advisory offering
  • Demonstrating to the partners that you are partner material and being a committed member of the Senior Management team

  • Comfortable managing audits from planning to completion including budgeting
  • Ability to cross sell, promoting the advisory and financial investment services of the firm

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 £45-55k 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.
