A fantastic opportunity has just become available for one of our clients. It certainly isn't your average Senior level role! This position is better described as a Client Manager role, full of responsibility! Our client is wanting the right person and has a budget of up to $90 000 to secure them.

The company itself is a mid-tier firm who are increasingly becoming more well renowned in the marketplace. They are currently going through a period of growth and have plans to open a second office on the North Island in the future, so they will soon have a national presence. There really is no better time to be joining the company. You can be involved with the firms big 2018 plans and be the first new member of staff to join the business in 2018.

The role is a dynamic one, which will suit someone passionate and motivated about what the organisation does. You will get to work closely with Directors at the firm, effectively being the right hand man to one of them. The role will largely be value add work, with the successful candidate leading special project work, helping clients with their various queries, providing Xero support and reviewing the work of Juniors/Intermediates. There still will be an element of compliance work as part of your job, but this will be limited to more senior duties including forecasts and budgets. As you could imagine, there is a lot of client contact in this role too, so it is vital that you are willing to establish and build relationships with these clients.

To be successful in the role you will have:

  • 5+ years total accounting experience
  • Previous experience within a New Zealand * CA firm, operating at the Senior level or above
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Great people skills
  • Ability to work autonomously and in a team
