  • Prepare accounts, including consolidated accounts, using CaseWare under UK GAAP or IFRS.
  • Supervise the audit assignment and develop strong relationships with the client, with expectation that you will resolve audit issues prior to manager review, review junior work and provide feedback.
  • Communicate complex or contentious issues with the manager and partner, using judgement to identify when matters are required to be escalated.
  • Run training sessions for junior members of the team throughout the year and provide the manager team with innovative adaptations to audit methodologies to improve efficiencies.

You are the right person for the role if you:

  • Are ACA qualified
  • Have strong audit bias with experience of UK GAAP and IFRS

With over 100 years of history and over 500 employees, we are a professional services firm helping clients with a variety of needs; from accounting and audit, expat and UK tax advice, HR support and business, to financial planning. Our clients range from individuals and charities to SMEs and large corporates. Most of our employees work co-operatively in specialist teams in one main London office, tailor-making solutions for our clients. We also have a dedicated expatriate tax services office in Hong Kong and are part of PrimeGlobal, one of the largest accounting associations in the world.

At Buzzacott, our culture is built on a foundation of trust - everyone is respected, supported, and encouraged to be themselves. Our team members are treated fairly and have equal access to opportunities to enable them to thrive individually and contribute to the firm’s success. As part of our People First strategy which encompasses our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion initiatives, we are pleased to be recognised as an ‘Inclusive Employer’. Inclusive Employers are the first and leading membership organisation for employers who are committed to prioritising inclusion and creating truly inclusive workplaces.

At Buzzacott we are trusted for the experience we have, the specialisms we understand, the relationships we build and the values we live by. We define ourselves by the needs of our clients, large and small and work hard to build and maintain relationships that are personal, collaborative and enduring – to be a partner you can trust. We are big enough to display deep knowledge over a broad range of specialisms, and small enough to understand the power of personal connections, and that’s what sets us apart from our competitors, and, we believe, is an excellent platform to create an interesting and exciting career.
