  • Sign off of sole trader accounts, personal tax returns and Partnership accounts and tax returns
  • Present and discuss any queries with your clients
  • VAT returns, payroll, confirmation statements
  • Advising clients on their salary and dividends

This is not an email-only, transactional role. We need your strong phone and face-to-face communication skills so as the clients feel well looked after by the practice.

You’ll have the following skills, experience and personality traits to be the practice’s Client Manager:

  • At least one year in an accountancy practice
  • ACA/ACCA, AAT level 3 or AAT level 4 qualified or part-qualified accountant – and working towards your qualification
  • You’re meticulous and organised, with fanatical attention to detail
  • Strong communication skills and enjoy speaking with clients
  • A desire and commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • A pro-active attitude
  • Easy to get along with, in a small team (being able to make a nice cup of tea is a big plus too!)
  • Good IT skills in that you are confident, willing and able to learn new platforms and IT solutions
