  • Regularly speaking with clients, both face-to-face and via email & telephone
  • Maintaining a strong knowledge of accounting systems to advise clients on the most suitable packages
  • Training junior members of staff

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Ideally ACA/ACCA qualified, although part qualified candidates will be considered
  • Exceptional accounts knowledge

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Ability to multitask effectively

If you feel you would be suitable, please apply direct or contact Jess Dodman at AJ Chambers.
