Skills and Experience Required

We always support colleagues to develop their skills but to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to tick most of these boxes...

 

We know it’s not a skill, but the successful candidate must have permission to work in the role’s location by the start of their employment.

 

You will also need;

  • You need strong technical skills together with the ability to engage and communicate clearly with clients both face-to-face and in writing.
  • You should love the detailed technical aspects of auditing, financial reporting or tax and have a desire to help others understand how to implement the rules efficiently and effectively.
  • You will have a natural curiosity which will mean you develop your technical knowledge ensuring that you are always up to date.
  • You should be self-motivated and able to work independently, as you will often be at client premises.
  • You’ll be ACA/CA/ACCA/CTA qualified.
  • A specialisation would be an advantage.

You need to be the kind of person who…

  • Currently an audit manager or partner wanting to use your skills and knowledge in a more technical role
  • Enjoys understanding and explaining the detailed technical requirements of ISAs and accounting standards (UK GAAP and/or IFRS)
  • Is able to complete projects accurately and on time
  • Be self motivated and able to work independantly 

Before you go....

Thanks for reading our job advert. We’ve tried to bring to life what it’s like working as part of Wilmington plc but we do so much that it’s tough to distil into a single page. We also recognise that sometimes people can be put off applying for a job unless they think they match every requirement. Don’t let that hold you back. If you are excited about the role and think you can do much of what we have described but aren’t sure if you are quite who we’re looking for… give it a try. Nothing ventured nothing gained!
