Job Description

A high-growth Financial Services business based in Basingstoke with a supportive and entrepreneurial working culture and impressive client base is seeking to appoint someone to a newly created senior leadership role.

Specifically they're looking for a Manager and/or Senior Manager looking to make their first move from a Big 4 or Top 50 Accounting firm with prior experience in financial services not essential.

This is a superb and newly created opportunity to join this firm as they start to build out their operations in the UK, with an office of roughly 35 people at the moment and growing. Culturally they are a breath of fresh air, offering lots of flexibility and the chance to work 2 to 3 days from home. This is a rare chance to get in early, have a voice at the table and work directly with the UK Managing Director where you'll take on day to day management for a small team of fund accountants (qualified/part qualified) who are dedicated to servicing the needs of a key fund management client.

The role will primarily focus on being the final review on accounts and technical trouble shooter, leading and coordinating all accounting and reporting deliverables, client relationship management and supporting a broader agenda of systems and process enhancements. Additionally you'll be responsible for a small team of accountants including oversight of all training and on-boarding, coaching and mentoring.

We're keen to speak to people coming from an external audit background in a big 4 or top 50 accounting firm, with the company very open on your client base and industry experience. What the hiring manager is specifically after is the client services and organisational skills you develop in audit, representing an ideal role for someone keen to break into financial services. Full training will be provided so you aren't chucked in at the deep end and longer term this is a fast growing business likely to offer a long term career with promotion to more senior roles.

Candidates based in Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta etc with relevant experiences of auditing funds are especially encouraged to get in touch if you're seeking a role in the UK although visa sponsorship is not available.
