How would you like to join our team?
We've got an exciting opportunity for someone to join the team. Forget working in a stuffy office with a load of suits, here the vibe is a little more casual . Don't get us wrong, we are still a very professional accountancy firm, we just don't see the need for the traditional formalities that you have at so many other firms.
What we are looking for is someone that will fit in perfectly with our company ethos of providing great customer service. That means you will be great with people and have the ability to provide advice in a jargon-free manner. But don't worry, we will not be expecting this on your first day, full training will be provided.

As a smaller practice, you will learn and be directly involved in what it takes to run an accountancy practice and a business generally, an opportunity that very few other firms will be able to offer.
