About the Team

We are looking for an energetic and dynamic Accountant to join a team with 3 Partners and 35 colleagues.

We will provide client contact, flexibility and responsibility so would suit a person looking for autonomy to grow in a role and the confidence to speak up when they need a hand (help will always be there for anyone who asks but our clients move fast and hence we need the team to be able to respond quickly within their capability to do so).

We aim to maintain a work environment that is fun, accommodating yet dedicated to client service. Put another way, banter, laughter and professionalism.

If this is something that appeals to you, let’s have a chat!
