Our client is a forward thinking accountancy practice based in south Leeds who pride themselves on standing out from their competition. Due to their long term vision and fresh approach to offering advice and expertise on finance and business strategies, they certainly stand out as a fantastic business to work for.

They are all about their people. Anyone that joins this firm will be constantly developed and encouraged to the best of their abilities and this is demonstrated by their incredibly low staff turn over. They have been consistently growing over the past 12 months with some excellent new recruits and now it's time to expand their team once again.

What this exciting new opportunity looks like:

Our client is looking for a Client Manager to join the business who will be the first point of contact for all their clients, offering a dedicated and impressive service from the first conversation right through to the last. As the Client Manager you will be responsible for calling upon your accounting knowledge to advise clients on how to fix their current problems, offering sound and credible advice.

You will be responsible for producing numerical reports to really understand the clients current accounting situation and what the next step is to resolve their issues. Whether this be considering their current software platforms, reviewing the quality of existing accounting processes they have in place or perhaps whether their accounting function should be solely managed by the firm themselves. Your knowledge and expertise will be critical in finding the right solution for the client quickly.

Once you have fully reviewed the client situation and identified where the problem lies, you will then pass this onto the team of qualified accountants in the firm to delve deeper into the areas of concern to then start implementing the changes and offering financial advice.
As the team grows, your role will develop further so excellent career progression is on offer for the right candidate.

To be considered for this opportunity you must meet the following criteria:-

-Experience and knowledge of VAT
-Have worked in an accountancy practice previously so you understand how the day to day work is completed
-Experience working with numerous accounting systems would be beneficial or at least an understanding around them so you can advise clients correctly
-Strong communication skills as you will be the first person clients meet when dealing with the firm
-Understand the principles of CIS
-Experience interacting with senior stakeholders in an organisation
-AAT qualified would be ideal but not essential
- A background in bookkeeping would be advantageous
