In support of the Managers and Partners, the role of an audit senior is very engaging with a high level of visibility, input and responsibility.

  • Provide good communication skills, to include meetings with clients and officials, telephone calls and letter writing
  • Comply with the Firm's systems and promote it's goals.


  • Qualified ACA or ACCA preferred but not essential - candidates who are qualified simply by their level of audit experience (QBE) will also be considered
  • Previous external audit experience
  • Previous accounts preparation experience ideal
  • Previous experience in staff supervision, mentoring and development
  • Strong IT skills - any experience of CCH or SAPA is beneficial but not essential
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills at all business levels.

What's on offer;

  • Career growth and development is encouraged as they are looking for the Managers and Partners of the future from within the firm
  • Limited travel as clients are predominantly in the Milton Keynes area
  • Competitive salary up to £38,000
  • Full benefits including subsidised Milton Keynes parking pass
  • Flexible working
