The Opportunity

Are you progressing through ACCA / ACA (or recently qualified) and looking for an interesting new challenge in a small growing firm that can fast track you to equity partner?  

This is a highly ambitious single partner firm – they are on the cusp of significant investment and growth and you’ll be coming in at an exciting (and lucrative) phase of the journey.  

It’s a team of 5, a cohesive, collaborative and welcoming group.  They have a superb baseline of loyal and diverse clients (sole traders, partnerships and small ltd cos) across a host of sectors.  

Your remit is supporting the Partner to manage the existing workload whilst he drives growth and ensures the infrastructure is in place to onboard the new clients.  

You’ll be managing clients, reviewing accounting from the junior members of the team, training and growing the squad (apprentices will join in 2024 and you’ll coach and support their development).  

It’s a chance to fast track to partner level and have a valuable shareholding in the firm.   

Different from the norm – you won’t just be another member of the firm, you’ll have chance to have genuine input into the decisions made, the team selection, processes, procedures, growth strategies etc etc – – really interesting and valuable projects alongside the business as usual accounting. 

You’ll be someone who enjoys bringing out the best in others.  Someone with excellent communication skills and ability to work with a range of clients.  


  • ACCA / ACA (completed or expecting to be completed in 2024 ideally). 
  • A track record of success at Semi Senior / Senior level in another regional firm. 
  • Ability to coach and lead others.  
  • Excellent technical accounting knowledge (experience of accounts prep or audit).  
  • IT skills – good knowledge of accounting software and the MS office suite.  
  • Ability to manage your own time and work with autonomy in a small growing team.  

4 days office based 1 day working remotely initially.  Route to equity partner, great environment, varied role managing a team (AAT qualified and apprentices)
