Job Description

The firm has a unique range of service lines and there is vast potential to grow the tax offering within the existing client base and beyond.

This is a fantastic opportunity that could suit a Senior Manager from within the Big 4, or a top tier firm, who is seeking more autonomy and strategic involvement than the large corporate world allows.

  • Shared responsibility for business development
  • Write articles for website and local press etc

  • Previous tax advisory experience essential
  • Current / recent experience within an accountancy practice / firm
  • Previous experience dealing with Owner Managed Businesses (OMB’s) as clients
  • Excellent presentation, networking and business development skills
  • Commercial awareness with a client focus and strong client relationship skills
  • On organised and inspiring people manager with integrity and leadership qualities.

What’s on offer;

  • Very competitive salary dependent upon level and experience
