Are you an Auditor seeking to move towards a commercial accounting role, but concerned about security in a new role? Or perhaps you achieved this ambition but are working in a sector negatively affected by Covid?
Often individuals at these stages in their careers, will rule out any roles in practice before looking beyond the company name.
Yes, there still are audit teams working fourteen-hour days and people anticipating weeks away from home when able to return to on-site audits.
There are also, however successful, hi-tech home and office-based teams within Accountancy Firms where their staff enjoy cutting edge technology, defined career progression, security and great benefits. Often these roles also provide the type of technical and managerial experience which will fast track a career in commerce.

I don't think many people wouldn't agree that working for a tyre and exhaust replacement garage is very different from working as part of an F1 team, but both those roles are fundamentally car mechanics……come on folk! If you want a diverse role, in a secure business which will only add to your career don't stop reading at the company name.
Working as part of a large friendly team, in this role you will be able to utilise your background in Audit (possibly combined with statutory accounting or financial reporting experience) in a varied role where you will undertake complex technical finance work including M&A support and projects.
You will be supported by cutting edge technology, enjoy a modern and safe office environment (including provision for your home office) and an inspiring supportive management team.
