Audit Senior - London (Top-30) - up to Â£48,000
A recently qualified ACA or ACCA is required to join the London office of a reputable Top-30 firm. This is a great chance to take your career to the next level having just qualified.
For this role, you will need to be a good team player, able to lead audits and possess good organisational, planning, and delegation skills. You shall be working on a whole host of different clients across a variety of different sectors from OMB's (owner managed businesses) right through to substantial corporations as well as encountering charitable / NFP organisations. This in turn will give you exposure to utilising your existing skills to the max by taking charge of assignments whilst supervising juniors and providing a high level of service to the client.
If you enjoy having variety and constantly being kept on your toes - rather than being a specialist in one given sector - then this is definitely the role for you. In many cases, you shall effectively be operating as a trusted business advisor, especially with OMB clients, as you will have direct proximity to those business owners and they shall be relying on you to give them solid professional advice.

Along with the audit element to this role, given the nature of clients you shall be working on, there will be ample opportunity to also keep up your accounting and taxation skills, thus, ensuring you remain very much as an all-rounded accountant. Again, this will appeal to those who want to take a deliberate step away from more corporate environments where audit is the strict order of the day!
Progression within this role is another key aspect and if you are not moving up the ladder internally every 12-18 months, then you simply aren't doing your job right.

CV applications are currently being taken as the client is looking to short-list for interview in the coming few days and begin the interview process.
