Accountant Position Available In Our Growing Accounting Firm

You want to be part of something special. You’re not just after a career, you’re after a chance to make a difference in people’s lives. You want to be part of a young and vibrant team of accountants  who do far more for clients than just ‘do their tax’. Accounting is an exciting profession and as a graduate you have a skill-set that allows you to help clients significantly with their financial future.However, the vast majority of accounting firms focus mainly on compliance work with their clients.

That’s all about reporting on history. We’re equally interested in helping our clients create history.

Through our LifePlan™ process we map out for clients where they are now, where they want to be in 10 years’ time, and how we can help them get there. By looking at all areas of a client’s financial life, you will help clients far beyond just doing their tax and compliance. It’s incredibly rewarding.

You’ll enjoy being part of our team, and you’ll enjoy dealing with our clients who are progressive thinkers with ambition.

As a team member at LEADER, you’re not only part of a firm that ‘gets’ the latest cloud-based technologies and social media, but who actually uses this technology every day. We’re an entrepreneurial firm with a vision for what the role of an accountant really can be.

We also understand that work is not your life. We have regular team get-togethers, dinners, ‘Bake or Buys’ and Friday drinks. We encourage a work-life balance.

It’s an exciting time in the growth and development of our firm.


Do You Have What It Takes To Succeed? Is This You?

You have exceptional attention to detail. You’re confident advising clients based on your sound knowledge and you have excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Your willingness to learn is clear to everyone you work with and you’re known for showing initiative and not having to be spoon-fed tasks to do.

You’re a positive “team player” with a happy attitude.

You love being highly productive and you pride yourself on your excellent time management skills. You get things done.

You exercise the highest standards of ethics, confidentiality and professionalism at all times.
