Head of Audit
Start the Audit team for established Accountancy Practice - Cardiff - up to £40,000
Your new company
My client is a flourishing Cardiff Practice with a strong history in the area. In the last 10 years they have focused heavily on staff development, becoming an ACCA platinum training partner, and the latest technology, becoming paperless and cloud focused. They foster a very supportive environment and give all employees the tools to keep developing themselves.
Your new role
You will be in charge of setting up the Audit function for the Practice. Currently they refer all audit work from their clients to another practice but this has grown to a point where they want to capitalise on this business. You will have a great deal of autonomy to shape and develop the department, including training and developing staff to support you.
You should have the vision to see how this role will progress based on your success. Initially there will be a larger weighting on Accountancy work as your portfolio grows and you should be comfortable completing audits yourself in the early stages. It's very much a role for someone happy getting their hands dirty to create something to be proud of!
What you'll need to succeed
You must have experience of the full end to end audit process as you will be the recognised expert for the practice. If you don't have an audit certificate, you should be interested in obtaining one in the early stages of being in the role. As mentioned, the firm are very forward thinking in terms of technology and techniques and your attitude should reflect this.
What you'll get in return
The salary range is £35,000-£40,000 plus benefits but the biggest benefit of this job is the satisfaction from creating a legacy within the area. You will get all the support you need to create the Audit team but this will be your team and your success story!
