They prides themselves in providing high quality services to its clients and was voted "Best UK Advisor to European Start Ups" by Wealth & Finance International Magazine and "Leading Advisory for Non-UK Businesses" by Acquisition International, both in 2014 and 2015.

For this reason the ability to speak fluent French or Spanish is essential.

Reporting to the Managing Director you will help to ensure that the client's accounting compliance and basic tax work will be of a high quality.

To be successful in this role you will need to be a qualified accountant with experience of preparing accounts, VAT and tax returns. You will need to be technically competent and, since you will be signing accounts and tax returns, your judgement and attention to detail will need to be high. Very good written and spoken English is also essential.
