Our clients’ market leading technical standards practice provides technical support, training and quality control services on financial reporting and assurance matters. 

Predominantly internally focussed, the department’s principal client is the firm’s audit practice but it also interacts with tax, corporate finance and forensic services teams The technical practice comprises approximately 70 people, including four partners.

The role would be particularly suited to an individual with experience of working within the technical department of another major firm of accountants looking for progression, although it would also be suited to an audit manager or senior manager looking to move into a technical role. 
• Reviewing the annual reports of publicly traded and other higher risk clients, to confirm compliance with financial reporting standards and relevant company law and regulatory requirements;
• Providing clear and practical solutions to ad hoc technical accounting queries raised by audit teams relating to IFRSs, UK GAAP and related company law and regulation;
• Developing financial reporting tools and guidance for use by the firm’s partners and staff;
• Preparing and presenting financial reporting training, updates and seminars both internally and externally; and
• Writing articles and other materials on financial reporting matters for internal and external communications.

Both managers and senior managers in the team would be expected to undertake work in all of these areas but senior managers must have the ability to provide support and supervision to more junior members of the team undertaking similar work.
