That’s the sound of a big bag of receipts that has just landed on your desk…”There’s the receipts you’ve been after for the last 3 months, now how much can you get me off my VAT bill?!?!”
Sound familiar? Not quite what you had in mind when you decided that you wanted to be a qualified Accountant, was it?! You had ambitions of being a big hitter, sawing through the ranks so that you could business partner with the clients, manage a team and maybe even run the firm one day!!
OI!! STOP DAY DREAMING WITH YOU DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR AND GET PROCESSING THOSE RECEIPTS!! That’s Ken, the owner of the practice you work for isn’t it?! Still runs a ledger in a book doesn’t he?! Remember that time you told him about cloud based accountancy software and he nearly through you out of the office?!?
Let me be the first to say, those weren’t delusions of grandeur, they were a vision of the future. Every now and again, a firm pops out of the pearly gates of paradise, looking to bring in someone who has the right attitude and skills to fit in. It just so happens that the time has come.
Working for a Southam based practice, you can not only work for but ultimately end up running the practice too. We’re looking for someone to replace the Owner/Director of this local accountancy practice. With the current MD looking to retire soon, he wants to hand the reigns over to his son who is not an Accountant but a brilliant Sales and Commercial professional, whilst bringing in a very good ACA or ACCA qualified technical Accountant.
You will be the only qualified, chartered Accountant in the firm. Managing 12 direct reports, who are a combination of clerical and part qualified Accountants, looking for someone to support their development too.
The clients are a combination of sole traders, limited companies and direct sellers, most of whom are very entrepreneurial, looking for a good accounting firm to support their own ambitions of growth. As a dynamic duo, you and the owners son, will be looking to grow the firm beyond it’s current trajectory and take it into a new space entirely…competing with some of the bigger firms in the midlands, the plan is to attract more clients and be more involved with your clients growth plans.
So what do you need to do to apply?
