If you are reading this you are already way ahead of other job seekers who have simply given their details to Agencies. It is likely you have found these words by your own initiative and your own research. This means you may well be the person we are looking for.
We will not under any circumstances consider any application introduced via an Agency.
We are looking for a general practice Account Manager
The type of person we are looking for is:
You are as interested in the clients as people as you are in the numbers on their tax returns. You are as interested in the clients' businesses as living, vital entities as you are in the numbers in their accounts.
You will be used to working in a general practice environment and you are used to dealing directly with clients and preparing accounts / tax returns etc through to completion, ready for approval by the principal. You are not a tax specialist. You are not an audit specialist. You are an all-rounder.
You live locally, probably between Southampton and Fareham.
You are probably looking for more responsibility. You want to look after your own portfolio of clients, working under the minimum of supervision, and yet working in a practice that uses state of the art IT, plus top end accounting and tax software. You are keen to be sent on training courses to ensure you are technically up to date.
You want to work for a practice that has systems and procedures to ensure that all our clients have true Peace of Mind, instead of all the other firms out there who pay lip service to this objective but don't live up to it.
You will probably have accountancy qualifications, but you may be qualified by experience. If you are the right person with the right experience, being unqualified is not an insurmountable issue. It is your experience, ability to do the job and willingness to receive ongoing training that matters.
You probably have strong views about how a modern accountancy practice should look after its clients - and we would like to hear them!
