Overall job purpose
This exciting role is to join the Accounting and Business Advisory (ABA) team in the London region. The ABA team is split into two specialist sub-teams - Accounting, Insight and Advisory (AIA) and Accounting and Financial Reporting (AFR).

The role is for a manager in one of our teams. The teams are responsible for the preparation of accounts for clients at all levels from large corporates to SME’s, in advance of audit and therefore a strong understanding of Financial Reporting Standards, LLP SORP and UK GAAP is essential.

It is an exciting time to join the team as our work with clients becomes increasingly digital. A part of the role is bringing RSM’s new digital solutions to market and our client base. Our digital platforms provide the bedrock of providing meaningful insight and advisory work to our clients.

The Manager will act as the lead across a portfolio of clients with responsibility for client service and quality of work. You are expected to act as the key client contact and delegate work to the team. A fundamental element of the role is the active coaching and development of the more junior members of the team.

The successful candidate will be qualified as either ACA or ACCA and be able to demonstrate good experience in financial reporting.
