Qualified Accountant/Client Manager
We are a firm of accountants based in Milton Keynes. We help our clients build better businesses through our range of growth accounting services. All that we do is centred around what the client is trying to achieve – their vision. Our services all involve a great deal more conversations with our clients, much more than the traditional annual accountant.
Our values of Integrity, Collaboration and Drive underpin everything we do and who we are. They drive how we want to operate and how we help our clients.
You’ll be the external finance function for a portfolio of SME clients. You’ll be their first point of contact and their financial eyes and ears. You’ll be responsible for delivering the key financial data and management information that our clients need to succeed. That means you’ll need to have great communication skills and a desire to understand the clients and what they are trying to achieve. You’ll need to care about helping them get to where they want to be.
You’ll need to be able to put yourself in the client’s shoes to understand how best to help them build a better business. You’ll be delivering our growth accounting services to a variety of clients, managing a series of projects and working closely with the partners to deliver workshops and seminars. You’ll also play a key role in developing others in the team. We will invest and support you in your continued personal development.
This role would suit a qualified accountant who is looking to expand their career and skills in areas such as business advisory, business development and people development. This role provides excellent opportunities for career progression. The partners will actively support you and help develop the skills you’ll need to progress.
